Mini Marshmallows

Pretty in Pink..:-) 
Are you a fan on the show Good Eats by Alton Brown? If not,do watch one and I bet u will love it.
Few days back I saw Alton brown making these little beauties.
Although the whole process looked a bit cluttered..I decided to give it a shotJ

Here is what you need

Recipe Source: Alton Brown

1 package unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup ice cold water, divided
1/ 2  Cup Sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
Pinch of Salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon Strawberry essence
Little Pink coloring
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch

Place the gelatin into the bowl of a stand mixer along with 3 tablespoon of the water. Have the whisk attachment standing by.
In a small saucepan combine the remaining water, granulated sugar, corn syrup and salt.
Place over medium high heat, cover and allow to cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
Uncover, clip a candy thermometer onto the side of the pan and continue to cook until the mixture reaches 240 degrees F,took me 10 minutes
Once the mixture reaches this temperature, immediately remove from the heat.
Turn the mixer on low speed and, while running, slowly pour the sugar syrup down the side of the bowl into the gelatin mixture.
Once you have added all of the syrup, increase the speed to high.
Continue to whip until the mixture becomes very thick and is lukewarm, approximately 12 to 15 minutes.
Add the vanilla /strawberry essence/Color during the last minute of whipping
Combine the confectioners' sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl. Line 4 half sheet pans with parchment paper, dust with the confectioners' sugar mixture.
Scoop the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1/2-inch round piping tip. Pipe the mixture onto the prepared sheet pans lengthwise, leaving about 1-inch between each strip. Sprinkle the tops with enough of the remaining cornstarch and sugar mixture to lightly cover. Let the strips set for 4 hours or up to overnight.
Cut into 1/2 inch pieces using a pizza wheel or scissors dusted with the confectioners' sugar mixture. Once cut, lightly dust all sides of each marshmallow with the remaining sugar mixture and store in an airtight container for up to a week.

Enjoy the little beauties with a cup of hot chocolate..
