Watch this story to see how easy it is to make Earl Grey marshmallows at home with a stand mixer


Gather powdered and granulated sugar, Earl Grey tea, corn syrup, gelatin, and water

Brew your Earl Grey tea, then set aside to cool

Line a 9"x13" pan with plastic wrap, then oil the pan and a spatula

Do this first, as the marshmallow sets quickly!

Sprinkle gelatin over the cooled tea in the bowl of a stand mixer

Let the gelatin absorb the water. This is called "blooming gelatin"

Meanwhile, bring water, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil until it reaches the soft ball stage (270°F/132°C)

*A candy thermometer is helpful but an instant read thermometer works, too!

Carefully pour the sugar syrup down the side of the bowl into the gelatin with the mixer on low

Try to pour it in the same spot to avoid splatter

Whisk the mixture until it is thick and really sticky

Pour the marshmallow out into your prepared pan

Some will stick to the sides of the bowl; that's okay

Push the marshmallow to the edges, smoothing out large lumps. Smaller lumps will smooth as it sets

Lightly re-oil the spatula once or twice if needed!

Allow the marshmallow to set for 1-2 hours until only lightly sticky, then transfer the marshmallow loaf to a cutting board

Peel off the plastic wrap, then cut into pieces with a sharp knife

Dust each side with powdered sugar after cutting to prevent them from sticking

Store in an air-tight container
