MINT MARSHMALLOWSo


Who doesn’t love marshmallows…?The fragrance of the festive season taking over with the

aroma of fruit cakes,sweets,and many more to brighten up the Christmassy spirit,I was

inspired to make marshmallows,and that too these mint marshmallows are really addictive

and awesome.Very easy to make but a little messy ,but it’s worth all the mess.Good for

gifting,and can be made into different colours and flavours.I have eaten many flavours but I

think mint….tops it all.I used liquid glucose instead of corn syrup and,believe me it was really

soft.

So do give a try …and send in your comments.

INGREDIENTS (makes 22-24)

2 egg whites

A pinch of cream of tartar

1 tsp sugar


50 ml water

250 gm sugar

1/8 cup liquid glucose (1.5 tblsp)


2 sachets gelatine (8 tsp)

1/4 cup water

1 tsp peppermint essence


1/2 cup icing sugar+1/2 cup cornflour mixed for coating

METHOD

First add the gelatine to half cup water and allow to bloom .

Heat the sugar,glucose,and water in a covered saucepan till it becomes thick (soft ball stage).

Beat egg whites in a stand mixer with 1 tblsp sugar and cream of tartar till stiff.

Now add the hot syrup little by little and keep on beating on high speed.

After pouring all the syrup,heat the bloomed gelatine in the same saucepan till melted for 1

minute.

Pour the gelatine mix also into the beating mixture and beat well for few minutes.

Pour onto a greased and lined tray with parchment paper,and allow to set overnight or set in

the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Cut into desired shapes with a sharp knife or scissors and roll on cornflour-icing sugar

mixture,and store.

You could try the same with flavours and colors you like.

Use a greased parchment paper to press on the top if you like.I just tapped the tray ,so

it’s your option .

Suggestions:You could coat with chocolate

Chocolate and coconut with mint marshmallows

Could be used as a topping for cakes and brownies

Cut pieces could be added to ice cream and fruit salad
