  1. Place 2/3 cup of water in a large pot. Add the honey and salt, and cook without stirring until the temp reaches 230 degrees.
  2. Pour 1/2 cup of water in the bowl of a stand mixer, and sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Let sit for five minutes.

  3. Using the whisk attachment on the stand mixer, slowly pour the hot liquid mixture in and mix on low. Add the vanilla.
  4. Slowly increase your mixer speed (I have a Kitchen Aid and I upped it from "stir" to a "3", and then after a few minutes to a "5", then up to a "7"), and mix for a total of 10-15 minutes.

  5. While it's mixing, butter a 9x9 baking dish. Pour the thickened mixture in, and push it down with your hands. Leave it uncovered for 12 hours. I often have to place a piece of parchment over the top of the pan if it is fruit fly season in my kitchen.
  6. After at least 12 hours, cut through the "brick" to create your individual marshmallows. I found that using kitchen shears was the simplest way to do it.
