    I tried this recipe but used the lemon drizzle flavour and it was a total disaster! Not sure what happened but the mixture went rock solid in the mixer and not only did I waste money on all the ingredients but it wrecked the expensive mixer too. I’d love to try again but any ideas where I went wrong?

      Hi Theresa! You have let it crystallised, so it flicks everywhere! Laura did that once.
      When pouring the hot mixture in, you need to make sure you pour it in really slowly like a drizzle. So when you pour it in it doesn’t touch the whisk or the sides.
      Here is a Facebook Live where Laura made Marshmallows using this recipe:
      Hope this helps you =)
