Yield:
1 9-inch pan

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons agar-agar powder

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • ¾ cup water

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar, divided

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

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

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
