    Kool-Aid flavored Marhsmallows!


    • 1 packet Kool-Aid Drink mix (I used fruit punch)
    • 1/2 cup cold water
    • 5 tsp unflavored gelatin powder
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
    • 1/3 cup cornstarch
    • Pop Rocks, optional


    1. Lightly coat 8×8 pan with cooking spray (I would use a half sheet pan instead, mine were really thick)
    2. Whisk together Kool-Aid packet, cold water and the gelatin in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes. I will soften and form into a thick mixture, don’t worry!
    3. In a saucepan mix together sugar, 1/4 cup corn syrup, 1/4 cup water and salt. Bring to a boil, stirring ocassionally until it reaches 240 degrees (or 222 degrees using my thermometer at my elevation). Pour the remaining 1/4 cup corn syrup into the bowl for an electric mixer, fitted with a wire whisk. Microwave the gelatin for about 30 seconds, until completely melted. Pour into the bowl with the corn syrup. Turn mixer on low and keep it running.
    4. Slowly pour in the syrup (once it reaches 240 degrees). Turn the speed up to medium, and beat for 5 minutes. Increase speed to medium-high and beat for 5 more minutes. Finally, increase the speed to the highest setting and beat for an additional 1-2 minutes. The marshmallow should be three times the volume you started with. Pour into prepared pan, and use a spatula to smooth. Sift together powdered sugar and cornstarch. Sift sugar mixture over the top of the marshmallows. Let stand for 6 hours to set.
    5. Use a knife to loosen the edges. Turn onto a surface dusted with more of the sugar mixture. Dust more sugar mixture over the top. Cut into desired shapes. Dip the sticky edges into Pop Rocks, if desired.
