  • Spray an 8x8” pan with cooking spray.
  • Make the coating mixture by whisking powdered sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Whisk the gelatin and 1/2 cold water in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes to soften.
  • Stir the sugar, 1/4 cup corn syrup, 1/4 water, and salt in a medium saucepan over high heat. Boil, stirring occasionally, until the temperature reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer. Meanwhile, pour the remaining 1/4 cup corn syrup in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Microwave the gelatin mixture until completely melted, about 30 seconds. Add to the mixer bowl and let it run on low.
  • When the syrup reaches 240 degrees, slowly pour it into the mixer bowl. Turn mixer to medium (about level 4) and beat for 5 minutes. Increase to medium-high (level 6-8) and beat for 5 more minutes. Beat on the highest setting for 1-2 minutes and then turn to low and add vanilla and butter emulsion. (The mallow will have tripled in volume.) Turn off mixer and stir in sprinkles.
  • Pour marshmallow into prepared pan and sift about 2/3 of the coating mixture evenly over the top. Let sit for at least 6 hours to set.
  • Use a knife to loosen the marshmallow from the pan. Invert onto a cutting board sprinkled with the remaining coating mixture. Cut into squares, dipping the edges in the coating mixture as needed and pat off the excess.
