Yummy Peppermint Marshmallows

I made this tasty treat last Christmas! So quick and easy and with the homemade touch, you know that the ingredients are real, and preservative free. Check out the recipe. (I found this on YouTube):

Ingredients:

2 cups Granulated Sugar
2/3 Corn Syrup
3 unflavored gelatin packets
Peppermint flavor
1 Tbsp Vanilla
Salt
1/2 cup water
Red food coloring

Method:

Add gelatin to water and let sit. In a pan, add water, corn syrup, and sugar and stir until it reaches a rolling boil (about 165 degrees F). Transfer boiled ingredients to the gelatin mixture, add salt and whip for 10-14 minutes or until it reaches stiff peaks. Add flavors while you mix. Pour mixture into a greased paper lined pan and swirl in red food coloring.Let sit for 6 hours or overnight, and dust with powdered sugar as you slice.

Other varieties could include, a dusting of shredded coconut, or dip in chocolate magic shell flavors, enjoy!
