Homemade Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

Homemade Chocolate Covered Marshmallows are simple to make and you can use your favorite cookie cutters to make different holiday shapes.


  • 2-1/4 oz Packages of Unflavored Gelatin
  • 6 Tablespoons of water
  • 1 1/3 cups of sugar
  • 1/2 cups + 2 Tablespoons of Light Corn Syrup
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Line a 9x9 pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour the 2 packages of unflavored Gelatin with 6 tablespoons of water in a large mixing bowl or your KitchenAid mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan over high heat, mix sugar, water, and light corn syrup. Cook until it reaches 240 degrees. Slowly pour the sugar mixture into the Gelatin and mix on low speed until all the sugar mixture is added. Then, increase to high speed and mix for 5-10 minutes until it reaches the stiff-peak stage. Add the salt and vanilla and mix. You can also add other flavors such as 1 tsp peppermint extract. 
  • Pour marshmallow into pan. Spray the top of the marshmallows with non-stick cooking spray and cover with a second piece of parchment paper and let sit overnight.
  • Cut with cookie cutters.
