Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups granulated sugar

2 tablespoons gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
confectioners' sugar


Mix 2 cups granulated sugar, 3/4 cup water.

Simmer over medium heat until mixture reaches the soft ball stage (on a candy thermometer) .

Remove from heat.

Soften 2 tablespoons gelatin in 1/2 cup of cold water. Place in a large bowl.

Pour the hot syrup over the softened gelatin.

Stir until dissolved.

Let stand until partially cooled. Then whip until thick and white, and until mixture will nearly hold its shape.

Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Pour into straight-sided pans lined with equal parts of cornstarch and confectioners' sugar, mixed together.

Let stand in a cool place until firm (not in the refrigerator. )
