Homemade Mint Marshmallows
makes ~2 dozen large marshmallows

3 .25 oz envelopes of unflavored gelatin
2 c sugar
3/4 c corn syrup
1/4 t salt
1 t mint extract
1/2 c of powdered sugar

candy thermometer
stand mixer

Line your square baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray (foil is optional if you use enough spray). 

In the bottom of your mixer, mix the gelatin with a 1/2 cup of water. Let it sit for 10 minutes.

In a large pot, mix together the sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 cup of water. Insert the candy thermometer and turn the heat onto medium low. Without stirring, let the syrup cook until it reaches 248 degrees.

Remove from heat and slowly add sugar syrup to the gelatin mixture. Add the salt and mix at high speed for 10 minutes or until it’s fluffy and tripled in size (may take less time, so check). Add the mint extract and pour marshmallow fluff into prepared pan.

Let it set for at least four hours. Remove marshmallow slab from the pan. Cover both sides of slab with powdered sugar. With a sharp knife, cut marshmallow into squares using scissors or a sharp knife coated in cooking spray or powdered sugar.
