1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

On low speed, add powdered sugar and mix until blended. Add vanilla exract just until well blended.

Your marshmallow is now ready to use in your recipes or refrigerate in a covered container for up to 2 weeks

* if you live in Britain, chances are you wont be able to find corn syrup either. A good alternative would be golden syrup or rice syrup. Honey is the right consistency but the taste is too strong.

PS) they freeze well.
