Gingerbread marshmallows




Butter for greasing
cup powdered sugar
2 1/2
tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1 1/2
teaspoons ground ginger
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground cloves
cup cold water
1 1/2
cups granulated sugar
cup corn syrup
teaspoon salt
cup water
cup molasses


  • 1 Generously grease bottom and sides of 11×7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with butter; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the powdered sugar. In bowl of stand mixer, sprinkle gelatin, ginger, cinnamon and cloves over 1/2 cup cold water to soften; set aside.
  • 2 In 2-quart saucepan, heat granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, 1/4 cup water and the molasses over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Heat to boiling; cook without stirring about 30 minutes to 240°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a ball that holds its shape but is pliable; remove from heat.
  • 3 Slowly pour syrup into softened gelatin while beating on low speed. Increase speed to high; beat 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is white and has almost tripled in volume. Pour into baking dish, patting lightly with wet hands. Let stand uncovered at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • 4 Sprinkle cutting board with about 1 tablespoon powdered sugar. Place remaining powdered sugar in small bowl. To remove marshmallow mixture, loosen sides from dish and gently lift in one piece onto cutting board. Using sharp knife greased with butter, cut into 1-inch squares (11 rows by 7 rows). Dip bottom and sides of each marshmallow in bowl of powdered sugar; shake off excess sugar but leave a light coating. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 3 weeks
