To make our marshmallows, I chose a recipe from Ina Garten. In short, you pour boiling sugar syrup into a bowl of softened gelatin then beat the hell out of it for fifteen minutes, preferably in a stand mixer. Spread the fluff in a pan and let it dry overnight.
In the morning, cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar. I don't even like marhsmallows, but ate a bunch of these because they were so irresistibly fluffy.
Fun project. Highly recommend.
