Marshmallow Mad

I think I'm going a little marshmallow mad.

In a good way I guess. I just can't get enough of making marshmallows.

So far since I made my first successful batch I've made Four batches.
Vanilla, Turkish Delight Liqueur, Coffee & Kahlua, and Earl Grey. And I still want to make more.
They are wonderful.

Next on the cards is a sugar free recipe (its uses Honey instead), Lemon, Chocolate, and Jaffa just to name a few.

My only regret is not trying to make them sooner.

Marshmallows - Take 2

It’s been a bit over a year since I first tried to make marshmallows but last weekend I thought it was time I tried again.

I am glad I did.

For this attempt I followed this recipe and I must say they turned out rather well (though a little lacking in flavor).

I scooped some of the mixture into some egg shaped flour molds (as per this recipe) and made a slab with the rest which I cut stars and hearts out of.
I just ripped up the edge pieces into bite size bits.

All the shaped marshmallows got a chocolate coating (some milk some dark).

Overall a success.

I won’t be waiting another year to make my next batch that’s for sure.
