Homemade Marshmallows- no corn syrup!

I love making sweets and treats at home for the kids, because we are limited on flavours when we get them from the shops. Making my own marshmallows at home, mean that I can customise them with amazing flavours and fillings. And the best thing about this recipe is that these marshmallows do not have any corn syrup in them. I don’t make anything that has corn syrup in it, or I try to recreate recipes that do not need corn syrup at all.
