The best friend of the campfire: the marshmallow. Fluffy, sweet, light and delicious. They are easy to make but maybe a bit messy. If you have a kids party you can surprise everybody with this delicious recipe.
- 200 g sugar
- 10 gelatin sheets (16.6g equivalent to 15 g of granulated gelatin)
- 200g of water (divided in two glasses of 100g. each).
- Oil to cover the tools
- Salt (not in the video, we forgot)
- Powdered sugar
- Corn starch
- Optional: Vanilla essence or other flavours.
- Optional: Food colouring
- Break the gelatin sheets into a bowl. You don’t need to do it if you have granulated gelatin.
- Add one of the glasses of water into the bowl and let it hydrate for 10 minutes (which is what this recipe needs).
- Prepare a tray with parchment paper.
- Add the food colouring and a pinch of salt into the gelatin and stir to ensure that it hydrates completely. (Yes, we forgot the salt in the video)
- Add the water in a pan. Also pour the sugar. It shouldn’t touch the edges because it could caramelise. You can stir it by wiggling the pan carefully. The goal is to reach 115Cº slowly, so use a low – medium fire.
- When you are almost there add the vanilla essence or other flavours.
- Prepare the mixer with the whisk and give a last stir to the gelatin.
- Once the syrup is ready, start pouring it in the bowl while another person starts mixing it. Do it at the slow setting at the beginning and increase the speed once you incorporated all the syrup.
- Keep mixing while you grease a spatula. The mix is ready when you can touch the bowl and fell it mildly warm. If it is too cold it will solidify. Pour it into the tray with the help of the spatula. Don’t worry about getting it all because it will solidify fats. Flatten the surface of the mix in the tray.
- Cover the mix with powdered sugar and cornstarch. Let it rest for 2h or more.
- Cut it with a greased knife and cover it in the powdered sugar and cornstarch mix.
