I used the exact ingredients. I put my gelatin in a bowl without heating it, to the side. I could not get my sugar to 250 so I made do when it leveled off at 200. It looked perfect so maybe it was a thermometer issue. When my syrup was ready, I plopped the gelatin into my egg whites in the mixer, then slowly poured in the very hot syrup. I didn't wait for it to cool. It worked great. I used vanilla. What I really want to add to these great reviews is that you can feel free to roll your cut marshmallows in quite a bit of confectioners sugar. I was worried they would taste like blocks of confectioners sugar, but after one and two days, they only seem to get better. The confectioners sugar is absorbed, makes the cut marshmallows very easy to handle, and only tastes like a light coating of sugar, like what you can taste on the outside of Peeps (only not that strong). Also, the half of my batch that I rolled in crushed candy cane, looked wet and sticky the next morning. I had to roll those in confectioners sugar too. It would have been best to roll them in a mixture of candy cane and confectioners sugar the first time. They do taste great and I will use this recipe again soon. People seemed happy to receive them as gifts because most people wouldn't go to the trouble to make them, but are curious to taste them homemade style.
