Let stand until soft.In a 3 quart heavy sauce pan cook granulated sugar, corn syrup, hot water and salt over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to moderate and boil mixture without stirring until a candy thermometer registers 240 degrees, about 12 minutes.

In a large bowl with clean beaters beat egg whites until they hold stiff peaks. Beat whites and vanilla into sugar mixtures until  just combined. Pour mixture into prepared Pyrex form and sift ¼ cup powdered sugar over top. Let dry at room temp. at least 3 hours. Run a knife around edges of pan and invert onto a large cutting board. Cut marshmallows into 1 inch cubes. Sift remaining powdered sugar into a large bowl and add marshmallows in batches, tossing to evenly coat. Keep airtight and cool for up to a week.
