  • Hand or stand mixer with whisk attachment

  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 packages unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups apple cider divided
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup


  • Combine cornstarch and powdered sugar.
  • Line baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle half of cornstarch mixture into lined pan until bottom of pan is covered.
  • Put gelatin and first cup of apple cider in the bowl of a stand mixer and set aside.
  • Combine the second cup of apple cider, sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan.
  • Cover and heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove cover and attach candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan.
  • Heat until the mixture reaches 240 F.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Start mixer on low speed and slowly stream in the hot mixture.
  • Turn up the mixer speed and beat for about 10 minutes.
  • Pour mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Top with remaining cornstarch mixture and let set about 4 hours.
  • Cut in to squares or cute shapes!


Use an 8x8 pan for the biggest marshmallows or a 9x13 pan for more normal-sized marshmallows.
Binder clips will help hold the parchment paper in place when lining the pan.
After streaming in the hot mixture, it helps to gradually turn up the speed of your mixer to avoid splattering marshmallow everywhere.
