Black Cherry Marshmallows

These pretty treats are a great gift or weekend treat for all the family. Lovely and light and so tasty.

We are using Sugar and Crumbs Black Cherry Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar but you can use any of your choice.


Black Cherry Marshmallows

1. Fill a jug with 180ml of warm water. Empty the contents of the gelatine sachets and whisk until dissolved. Stand to the side.

2. Line a baking tin (8x12in) with clingfilm and brush with the vegetable oil.

3. In a heavy based pan combine the granulated sugar, 200g of the Sugar and Crumbs Black Cherry natural Flavoured Icing Sugar (or any flavour of your choice), all the liquid glucose and 3 tablespoons of water. Bring to the boil stirring occasionally until its melted or until the mixture reaches 112c. ( dont worry if you don't have a thermometer. Just stir until it bubbles and then let it bubble for a further 5 minutes stirring all the time).

4. Pour into a mixing bowl and whisk on a low setting. After a few minutes add the gelatine you prepared earlier and increase the speed of the whisk to a medium setting. Whisk for 10-12 minutes until the mixture has increased in size and reached a thick marshmallowy consistency.

5. Meanwhile melt the conserve/jam in a pan over a medium heat for a few minutes then set aside.

6. Tip the marshmallow mixture into the prepared tin and stir in the conserve with a small spoon a little at a time to create a swirly pattern.

7. Cover the tin with clingfilm and leave to set at room temperture for 4-6 hours or overnight.

8. Sift the cornflour and 50g of the Sugar and Crumbs Black Cherry Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar (or any flavour of your choice) in a bowl. Using a hot knife cut the marshmallow into desired size pieces and toss each piece in the powdered mixture until coated.

9. Store in an airtight container lined with baking paper for 5 days.
