Remember: when an other dimensional creature tastes these and asks if you’re a cooking god, always say YES!
Stay Pufft Marshmallow Heads
3 (1/4 oz) packets unflavored gelatin

⅔ cup light corn syrup
¼ tsp kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup powdered sugar
candy button eyes

The Traveler has come, but how will you consume him? S’mores or hot chocolate? Choose and perish!
Prepare for the coming of Gozer by lightly oiling a 13X9 inch baking pan. Sprinkled the oiled pan with powdered sugar.
Your whisk attachment is the keymaster. The stand mixer is the gatekeeper. Bring the two together.
Like an offering to the Hittites gods, add ½ cup ice cold water to the stand mixer’s bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin powder on top and leave it alone for 10 minutes while you read up on Zuul.
Slime a saucepan by dumping in the sugar, corn syrup, salt, and ¼ cup water. Mix it up and bring it all to a boil. Keep boiling for 1 minute.
Turn your mixer to high. Carefully pour the molten sugar down the side of the mixer bowl.
Keep mixing for 12-15 minutes. Generally, you don’t see that kind of behavior in a major appliance. [Feel free to have Venkman say that last sentence instead of leaving it as recipe text.]
Add the bourbon and vanilla. Don’t cross the streams. Leave the mixer running for 2-3 more minutes, or until well combined.
Coat a rubber spatula with cooking spray. There is no stickiness. There is only Zuul.
Carefully spread marshmallow mix into your powdered sugar lined pan.
Spray a sheet of waxed paper with nonstick cooking spray and gently lay it on top of the proto-marshmallows.
Let the marshmallows set for 2+ hours while you work on reversing the particle flow through the gate.
When you come back, grease a knife before carefully cutting the marshmallows into squares.
Imagine the most harmless thing from your childhood, something that could never ever destroy you. Then attach two candy eyes to a cut side.
Immediately coat the cut marshmallows in powdered sugar to keep them from sticking.
Draw a happy gaping mouth with the icing pen.
Enjoy your Stay Pufft Marshmallow heads freshly roasted over two crossed charged particle beams.
