  1. Line your baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray
  2. In the bottom of your mixer, mix the gelatin with a 1/2 cup of water. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large pot, mix together the sugar, evaporated milk, 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.
  4. Remove from heat and slowly add sugar syrup to the gelatin mixture. Mix at high speed for 10 minutes or until it’s fluffy. Add the vanilla and orange zest and pour marshmallow fluff into prepared pan.
  5. Let it set for at least four hours. Sprinkle top with orange sugar. Remove marshmallow slab from the pan and sprinkle bottom with orange sugar.
