Ingredients

  • 118 ml water
  • 12 g gelatin powder
  • 227 g sugar
  • 118 ml water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • vegetable oil
  • 6 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour
  • Salted caramel optional

EQUIPMENT

  • Stand mixer or a large bowl and a hand whisk
  • Saucepan
  • Glass
  • Tray
  • Bowl
  • Baking paper
  • Sieve
  • Knife or cookie cutters

Instructions

  • In your stand mixer add your gelatine and water and leave it to soak until your sugar syrup is ready
  • Add your sugar and water to a pan and bring to the boil then turn the heat right down to a simmer and set your timer to 11 minutes
  • Grease your tray with vegetable oil then cut some baking paper to fit the base and sides of your tray and grease that too
  • Add your icing sugar and corn flour to a bowl
  • Sprinkle your baking paper with your icing sugar and corn flour mix with a sieve
  • When your 11 minutes are up take your syrup off of the heat and fill a glass up with cold water and drop a little of your syrup into it. Then pick the syrup up and roll it in between your fingers. If it rolls into a ball you know you have reached soft ball stage
  • Add your sugar syrup to your gelatine and beat on a high speed for 5 minutes
  • Add your Vanilla and beat again for another 8 minutes. Your marshmallows should look a little like meringue and hold their shape.
  • Add your marshmallow mix to your tray and spread it out evenly
  • If you want salted caramel ones add a few drops of salted caramel and swirl it through
  • Sieve your icing sugar and corn flour over the top of your marshmallows and leave to set for a few hours
  • Grease your knife or cookie cutters with vegetable oil and cut the shapes you desire
  • Roll each marshmallow into your icing sugar and corn flour mix making sure all sides are coated
  • Then enjoy, on their own, toasted on top of hot chocolate or however you like to eat them (",)
