Home Made Marshmallows

  We don't eat too many sweets at our house, but if I feel up to it and want something made with marshmallows and I'm out, this is only a minor step between us and gooey goodness. This is something that will definitely not be considered a "necessity" when it comes to food storage. But if you store the basics it can be yours whenever you choose. Stock up on rice cereal and you could have rice crispy bars when others are eating stale crackers!

2 Pkg knox gelatin
1/4 c. boiling water
1/4 c. cold water
1 c. sugar
1 c. white Karo
1/2 c boiling water

  In mixer bowl dissolve gelatin in cold water. Ad 1/4 c. boiling water, letting it sit till cool. In a medium sauce pan combine sugar and  1/2c. boiling water till dissolved. Add Karo, stirring well.  Pour into gelatin  and cool. When cold beat with a whip until stiff peaks form. Scrape into powder sugar dusted pan. Spread powdered sugar on top and spread to all corners and edges. Let dry. Cut into 1 inch pieces. Store in air tight container. Use as store-bought.
