Powdered sugar


1 1/2
cups graham cracker crumbs
tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 To make Beer Marshmallows, generously oil 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish; sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Add 2 cups granulated sugar, the remaining 1/2 cup beer, the corn syrup and salt; cook over low heat about 3 minutes, beating with whisk until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to medium; cook 6 to 8 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 240°F. Remove from heat.
  • 4 Using electric mixer with whip attachment, beat softened gelatin on low speed while slowly pouring very hot sugar mixture into gelatin. Increase mixer speed to high; beat about 10 minutes or until light and fluffy.
