If you love coffee AND marshmallows, you are in for a treat. This homemade marshmallow recipe is flavored with iced coffee!
1 cup International Delight Iced Coffee; divided
3 1/2 packets unflavored gelatin
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
Grease the sides and bottom of a 13×9″ baking pan. Cover evenly with powdered sugar.
In a stand mixer bowl, or other large metal bowl, add 1/2 cup of International Delight Iced Coffee. Sprinkle Iced Coffee with 3 1/2 packets of unflavored gelatin and let it soften.
In a medium to large-sized heavy-bottomed pot, combine another 1/2 cup of Iced Coffee, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Heat mixture on medium, stirring constantly, but gently, until all of the sugar is dissolved. Once the sugar is dissolved, stop stirring, clip your candy thermometer inside the pan and allow the mixture to come to a boil (with NO stirring). As it comes to a boil, the mixture will bubble and rise; be sure to keep the heat at medium, no higher.
Heat mixture to 240 degrees F. Be sure to keep watch as the temperature can rise quickly. When it reaches 240 degrees F, remove from the heat immediately and pour into your your metal bowl and stir to combine with the gelatin.Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Then, beat the mixture on high until it is white-ish and very thick (about 2-3 times the amount you originally started with).
While the mixture is beating in your stand mixer (or after it’s done if using a hand-held mixer), beat two egg whites in a bowl until stiff peaks form. Beat the egg whites into the white/thick marshmallow mixture until just barely combined (don’t overdo it).
Pour the mixture into your prepared pan and spread it to make it as even as you can. Sift powdered sugar on the top of the mixture and allow to sit and firm up for about 4 hours (minimum) or overnight.
When firm, use a sharp knife and dip it in powdered sugar. Run the knife along the inside edge of the pan to separate the marshmallow from the pan (if the knife gets sticky again, you can dip it again in powdered sugar). Place the pan on it’s side and with the knife, gently lift up one of the corners and allow the marshmallow to fall out onto a cutting board. Dip a knife, or a pizza cutter, in powdered sugar and cut the marshmallow into strips and then into squares. Gently toss each square in a bowl that has powdered sugar in it.
Dust off the excess powdered sugar and place on a plate or in a food storage container.
