I bet Aunt Hilda kept a dish of these on the coffee table.
From a box sold in Columbiaville, Michigan.
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 c. cold water
1/2 c. sugar
2/3 c. light corn syrup
1/2 t. vanilla
Equal parts of cornstarch and sugar
Soften gelatin in cold water and dissolve over low heat. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Put in large mixer bowl with corn syrup and vanilla. Beat at high speed for 15 minutes or until mixture is very thick and of marshmallow consistency. Cover bottom of pan (9x9x2 in.) with equal parts sugar and cornstarch. Pour in mixture and smooth to. Let stand in cool place 1 hour or until set.
Loosen from pan and turn out on board sprinkled with mixture of equal parts cornstarch and sugar. Cut into squares with knife wet with cold water. Roll in cornstarch and sugar.
