Mallows for a Valentine

I made home made marshmallows!
They are SO GOOD!
I couldn't believe I accomplished such a hard task...
It's not as hard as you would think!

What you will need
1 cup powder sugar
2 tabel spoons, 2 and 1/2 tea spoons unflavored gelatin
1 cup water. Divided half and half
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 tea spoon salt
2 large egg whites
1 tabel spoon vanilla

Put 1/2 cup of water in a mixer with the gelatin. Don't mix until it has set and looks "tough". In a sauce pan put another 1/2 cup of water, sugar(not powder sugar) and corn syrup and heat on low until it hits 220 degrees on a CANDY THERMOMETER. once the sugar devolves and the mixture hits the right temperature and beat on high. in a separate bowel beat the egg whites and the vanilla until fluffy and add it to the other mixture that is being beat on high. I added food coloring after it was all fluffy.
In a 13x9x2 inch pan, grease it and sift powder sugar in it. Put the soft marshmallow in the pan and spread it out Sift more powder sugar on top.
Let it sit for 3 hours-a day. 
You can cut them up with a greased pizza cutter. I used heart cookie cutters.
I also melted chocolate and dipped half of the heart in it. 

The PERFECT Valentines Day treat! Light, fluffy, sweet, and made out of love!
