It’s Brunch Time! Halloween is a fun time to make sweet treats for your family. Homemade marshmallows have an incredibly soft, pillow-y texture and these cookies and cream marsh mellows are major YUMM!
1 cup water, divided
3 (1/4-oz.) packages unflavored gelatin
11/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9-oz.) package chocolate wafer cookies (such as Nabisco), crushed
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
- Place 1/2 cup water in a small microwave-safe bowl; sprinkle gelatin over top. Set aside.
- Bring remaining 1/2 cup water, granulated sugar, corn syrup, and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high. Cook 16 minutes or until syrup mixture reaches 250°F, slowly swirling pan occasionally. Carefully pour syrup mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture cools to 210°F.
- Microwave reserved gelatin mixture at HIGH 30 seconds or until gelatin melts, stirring until smooth. Beat syrup mixture in stand mixer at low speed, gradually adding gelatin mixture in a thin, steady stream. Beat until combined. Add vanilla. Increase speed to high; beat 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add crushed wafer cookies; beat 10 to 20 seconds or just until combined.
- Coat a spatula with cooking spray. Use spatula to scrape mixture into a lightly greased 11 x 7-inch straight-sided metal baking dish. Lightly coat hands with cooking spray and press mixture into an even layer. (recipe: MyRecipes.com)
