“Picked up this recipe from a lady that used to make them for Halloween in the 50’s.”
2 (3/4 ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 1/4 cupswater, divided
In small bowl, stir together gelatin and 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water.
Set aside to set up.
Combine sugar and remaining 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water in a medium saucepan over low heat to make a syrup.
Stir until sugar is dissolved and let cool.
With mixer on low speed, slowly and carefully pour syrup into the softened gelatin. Increase speed to high; beat until mixture is very thick and white and has almost tripled in volume, about 15 minutes. Add vanilla if desired; beat to incorporate.
Pour into a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish and let set overnight.
Cut into squares, dust with confectioners sugar and serve.
