It is getting warmer out, and no one wants to turn on the oven and make their apartment all sticky-hot to make treats. So what is non-oven, non-fat, and mega-delicious? Homemade marshmallows!
There are various recipes for them, mostly involving gelatin, sugar, corn syrup, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt. Recipes are here, here and here.

Split the "batter" into portions when you're done if you want to make flavored mallows. You can use food coloring and extracts to flavor the different portions, and then either swirl them into one pan, or pour them one by one for layered treats. How about half vanilla, half earl grey?
