|3 sachets Dr Oetker unflavoured gelatine
2 cups granulated sugar
4 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup water
157mils (2/3 cups) Dr Oetker liquid glucose (Corn syrup)
½ cup of water (to rehydrate gelatine)
Red food colouring (This is optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cook until candy
Have all ingredients ready. You’ll need a 9inchx9inch square pan lined with parchment or wax paper sprinkled with icing sugar, a candy thermometer, mixing balls, a large 4qt pan, an electric mixer and some spatulas.
|Tip: It’s a good idea to oil spatula, spoon and hands to smooth the marshmallow fluff in the pan.
To cut your marshmallows into squares you can use a pizza cutter or large kitchen scissors. I find these tools great to cut marshmallows, especially the scissors.
Marshmallows make a wonderful gift.
You can also use cookie cutters to cut the marshmallows into all sorts of whimsical shapes
