Easy Scotchmallows

These Easy Scotchmallows may not look like the See’s Candies version, but they are easier and just as tasty! Layers of dark chocolate, marshmallows and homemade caramel create the best candy!
Easy Scotchmallows
Recipe adapted from HERE
Ingredients
  • 10 ounces dark chocolate
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white Karo syrup
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • Candy thermometer or digital thermometer. I prefer a digital meat thermometer.
Instructions
  1. Line a 9x13 casserole dish with nonstick foil. I've discovered that certain places are still stuck in by paper sprayed with acrylic. Foil comes up over the edges of the pan on either side.
  2. Melt chocolate according to package directions and pour into prepared casserole dish.
  3. Top chocolate with marshmallows. Set aside.
  4. In a sizable pot mix salt, sugar, corn syrup and whipping cream.
  5. Clip a candy thermometer on the pan if your pan lets. If not, you will need to check the temperature with your thermometer rinse off it .
  6. Cook caramel mixture over moderate heat (I love to cook mine in a 7.5 level in my stove) until caramel reaches 241*F. Caramel should cook in a heavy simmer / boil and will double, maybe triple, in volume from the bubbles.
  7. Stir caramel mixture every few minutes to stop from scorching the bottom of the caramel.
  8. The mix will come to 218*F fairly fast, so don't panic. Between 218 F - 241 F is going to take a while.
  9. As you stir and cook, the caramel begins off white, then a mild caramel then finally a rich caramel color.
  10. Once caramel reaches 241*F, remove from stove. Stir regularly letting the caramel to cool and thicken.
  11. Pour caramel over marshmallows.
  12. Allow entire mixture to cool to room temperature. Caramel will start to firm up.
  13. After 100% cool (several hours) Eliminate Scotchmallows from pan and slice into bite sized pieces.
  14. If caramel is still tacky when cutting, it is still slightly warm at the middle. Without adhering to knife caramel should cut.
  15. This mixture may also be refrigerated to cool quicker but it is best if you allow it to cool naturally.
Notes
Can NOT double the recipe. It will double, if not triple in size and a pan isn't large enough to include a batch when the mixture comes to a boil. Stick to one batch.
We often prefer to divide this into two batches. 1 batch of Easy Scotchmallows at a 8x8" pan, along with another 8x8" pan lined with nonstick foil or sprayed parchment paper and make sea salt caramels with it.
