This easy marshmallow recipe is perfect for your next green theme holiday. Whether you're planning a dessert for St. Patrick's Day or Christmas, this recipe will help you look like a cooking all-star!

Course: Dessert, holiday, jello
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 people
Ingredients
  • 2 envelopes Knox gelatin
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • a few drops of green food coloring
Instructions
  1. Soak 2 envelopes of gelatin in 3/4 cup of cold water. Set aside.

  2. Bring 3/4 cup of water to a boil and add 2 cups of sugar. Stir constantly and boil for 10 minutes. (The sugar and water will become a thick and creamy liquid, which is what you want).

  3. Pour the sugar-water mixture over the gelatin mixture and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and a few drops of green food coloring.

  4. Beat for 20 minutes using a mixer (your arm will thank you). The mixture will become a thick and creamy liquid. 

  5. While the marshmallows are in the mixture, spray a 9x13 pan with cooking oil.

  6. After 20 minutes pour the mixture into the cooking pan and place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight. (The more time you're able to give your marshmallows, the better).

  7. Once the marshmallows are set you can easily cut them into squares or soak a cookie cutter with water to make festive decorations. 

  8. Roll into powdered sugar. You can also add coconut, sprinkles, peppermint pieces, etc.
