Hot Cocoa and Homemade Marshmallows
- Preparation Time10 mins
- Cooking Time7 mins
2 cups cold water
2 cups granulated sugar
2 egg whites**
2 cups confectioners' granulated sugar, sifted, plus more for dusting pan and marshmallows
Butter, for greasing pan
In a medium sized saucepan soak the gelatine in the cold water. After the gelatine has softened, approximately 10 minutes, add the regular granulated sugar and then gently dissolve over low heat, approximately 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
In a mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks and then fold in the sifted confectioners' granulated sugar. While the mixer is on low, slowly pour in the cooled gelatine mixture. Increase the speed and beat until white and thick. The volume should double in size and should form between soft and firm peaks.
Line an 8 by 8-inch baking dish with high sides with foil, grease slightly with butter, and coat with confectioners' granulated sugar. Alternatively, you can use a baking sheet, but the marshmallows will not be as tall. Pour marshmallow mixture in and top with more sifted confectioners' granulated sugar. Leave out overnight or for at least 3 hours to set. The marshmallow should be light and spongy when set.
Loosen marshmallow from edges of tray and invert onto a large cutting board. Peel off foil and use a large knife to cut the marshmallows into cubes. Dredge each piece in confectioners' granulated sugar.
