Instructions Checklist
  • Mix agar-agar into 1/2 cup of cold water.

  • Bring sugar and 3/4 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Do not stir once syrup begins to boil. Heat to 238 degrees F (114 degrees C) or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat and add the agar-agar. Pour syrup into a glass bowl; let cool briefly.

  • Beat the syrup using an electric mixer until thick and white. Mix in vanilla extract and salt until the marshmallow mixture is combined.

  • Mix 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar and cornstarch together; spread over the bottom of a 9-inch baking pan. Pour the marshmallow mixture on top; let stand until firm, at least 1 hour.

  • Cut into square marshmallows using a wet knife. Dust with remaining confectioners' sugar.

Cook's Note:

To make marshmallow cream: Gently heat 16 ounces of the prepared marshmallows plus 1/4 cup corn syrup in a double boiler, stirring constantly.

I tried three times and none of the attempts worked. This recipe isn't worth the time effort or waste of ingredients. Read More

I could not get the mixture to turn white and make marshmallows. The Agar agar that I have only works when put into boiling water. Read More
