SERVINGS: 96
Yield: Makes generous 1-inch marshmallows

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting the marshmallows' surface and the work surface
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cold water
2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored powdered gelatin (3 to 4 packages)
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup crushed peppermint pinwheel hard candies
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup warm water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 or 4 drops peppermint oil (optional)
2 or 3 drops red liquid food color (optional)
RELATED RECIPES
Chocolate-Dipped Peppermint Marshmallows
DIRECTIONS
Grease a 9-by-13-inch flat-bottomed baking dish with nonstick cooking oil spray. Line it with enough parchment paper so it overhangs by 1 inch on 2 opposing sides, then grease it with nonstick cooking oil spray. Generously and evenly sift the 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar onto the paper; the marshmallow will stick to any spots that are missed.

Place the cold water in a small bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin over the surface. Let it stand, stirring once or twice, until the gelatin softens, about 6 minutes.

Stir together the granulated sugar, corn syrup, crushed candy, salt and warm water in a 3-to-4-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until the candy and sugar have dissolved. Increase the temperature to medium-high and bring to a full boil, stirring constantly; boil for 20 seconds, then stir in the proofed gelatin. Cook for 30 seconds, stirring as the mixture bubbles. Remove it from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and oil of peppermint, if using. Stir to make sure the ingredients are completely dissolved.

Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into the bowl of a stand mixer; discard any remaining solids. Use a balloon whip attachment to beat the mixture, first on low speed, then gradually increasing the speed to high. Beat on high for 6 to 7 minutes, until the mixture has stiffened, lightened in color and become quite fluffy.

If using, add the drops of food color, separated from one another. Grease both sides of a flexible spatula with nonstick cooking oil spray; use the spatula to fold the color into the mixture just until lightly rippled and swirled.

Use the spatula to scrape the marshmallow mixture into the prepared dish, spreading it evenly to the edges. Generously sift confectioners' sugar over the marshmallow surface. Evenly coat a second sheet of parchment with nonstick cooking oil spray; pat the sprayed sheet down on the marshmallow surface. Cover the top with foil. Let the mixture cool and firm up; this will take at least 6 hours and up to 24 hours; the mixture will become firmer and easier to handle if left the full 24 hours. After that time, refrigerate it if not using promptly.

To cut the marshmallows: Sift about 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar onto a large, clean cutting board. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper from the marshmallow slab, then invert the slab on the sugared surface. Peel off the second sheet of parchment paper and sift more confectioners' sugar over the top. Using lightly oiled kitchen shears (preferred) or a large, sharp, lightly oiled knife, cut the slab crosswise into 12 portions and lengthwise into 8 portions to form generous 1-inch marshmallows; or cut as desired. Dust all of the cut surfaces of the marshmallows with confectioners' sugar to reduce their stickiness. As necessary, clean off the knife and re-oil. Dust the cut marshmallows all over with extra confectioners' sugar so they don’t stick together during storage.

Store, loosely packed in an airtight container, for up to 2 weeks; for longer storage, freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost before serving.

Why does that, uh, very low quality, jerky video end with a former president giving a Nazi salute?

Just to clarify, that is not, in fact, a low quality, jerky video, but in fact a GIF (that's Graphics Interchange Format, which is a file format consisting of a series of images most commonly found in rapid succession as a way to provide a video without an excessive upload size). Although I am not familiar with this particular GIF of former President Obama, and whether it was produced using digital effects, I believe it is an abbreviation of him waving to someone to the left of shot.

As an interesting note, a friend of mine interested in A/V noted to me that the reason for holding out the arm before a mic drop is to advise the sound guy to turn the mic off.

EDIT: According to this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEp9OUXix-w), this GIF is an abbreviation of President Obama dropping the mic at the 2016 White House correspondence dinner–actually depicted in the article LittleMissNyan linked. It is a trimmed version of him waving before walking off the stage.

If anyone ever does that to me, I'm turning a little knob all of the way to the right, pushing a slider all of the way up, and blaming the person that dropped it.

nothing, apparently.
