 1.       In the bowl of an electric mixer, sprinkle gelatin over ½ cup cold water. Let soak while performing next step.

3.       Turn on mixer to level 1 and pour boiling syrup into gelatin in a steady stream. Slowly increase the mixer speed from 1-10 over 5 minutes, then let mixer run at highest speed for 12 minutes.
4.       While mixer is going, line the bottom of a pan with plastic wrap or waxed paper, and then spray with cooking spray. (9x13 pan for thinner marshmallows, 9x9 pan for thicker marshmallows)
5.       At the end of 12 minutes, pour the marshmallow mixture into the pan and cover with a layer of powdered sugar.
6.       Let sit for 2 or more hours.
7.       Turn the marshmallows out onto a cutting board and remove the plastic. Cover the exposed side with powdered sugar.
8.       Using a ruler, cut the marshmallows into 1x1 pieces or cut into any shape or size you like. Using the excess powdered sugar or a bowl partly filled with powdered sugar, dredge the marshmallows until all sides are coated and not sticky.
