Chocolate or Mint Chocolate Marshmallows

1. Fill a jug with 180ml of warm water. Empty the contents of the gelatine sachets and whisk until dissolved. Put to the side. Keep coming back to it.

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 icing sugar, all the liquid glucose and 3 Tablespoons of water. Bring to the boil stirring occasionally until its melted or until the mixture reaches 112 C. ( Don't 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 and spread evenly.

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 natural Flavoured Icing Sugar in a bowl and then 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.

    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 =)

    Hi there, these look lovely, I was wondering if it is possible to make them using vegetarian gelatine? Thank you.

      Hi Lara,
      We have tried a vegetarian version using Agar Agar. Here is the link to our Facebook Live where we made it. Hope that helps =)
