Cooking With Kids Thursday: Snowflake Marshmallows!

Snowflake marshmallowsA rainy day like today definitely calls for some hot chocolate and major cuddle time on the couch with my kiddos and of course you can’t have hot chocolate without some yummy marshmallows to put into it.  Pinterest comes to the rescue again!  This recipe for homemade snowflake marshmallows looks like such a fun activity to do with the family.  I’m thinking instead of just snowflakes, I will let the kids do whatever shapes they want.  Thanks for the wonderful idea Martha Stewart!

Here’s what you need to do to make this:

  • 2 envelopes (each 1 scant tablespoon) unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Vegetable-oil cooking spray (Use lots to cover everything from the utensils you use, to the cookie cutters, to the mixing bowl.  This mixture is really sticky!)
