  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 envelopes (1 oz each) unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 box (4-serving size) raspberry-flavored gelatin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water


  • 1
    Generously grease bottom and sides of 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the powdered sugar. In bowl of stand mixer, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water to soften; set aside.

    In 3-quart saucepan, heat granulated sugar, corn syrup, raspberry gelatin, salt and 1/2 cup water over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar and gelatin are dissolved. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. 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. (While mixture is cooking, watch so it doesn’t boil over; reduce heat to low if necessary.)

    Slowly pour syrup into softened gelatin while beating on low speed. Increase speed to medium-high; beat 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is light pink and has almost tripled in volume. Pour into dish; spread and smooth top with rubber spatula. Let stand uncovered at least 8 hours or overnight.

Loosen sides of marshmallow mixture from dish and gently lift in one piece onto cutting board. Spray sharp knife with cooking spray. Cut marshmallows into 1-inch squares (11 rows by 7 rows). Dip bottoms and sides of marshmallows into bowl of powdered sugar. Store tightly covered at room temperature up to 2 weeks.
