Have you ever had homemade marshmallows before? They’re amazing! It tastes so much better than store bought ones, and making them yourself opens up a world of flavours!
I made mine half coconut, half pandan. So very good.
- 1/2 cup of water +1/4 cup
- 3 tablespoons unflavoured gelatin
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 1 tbsp flavouring (I split this batch into 2, so half got coconut flavour, the other half got pandan)
- 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- Coat your pan with cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper with 2 inches hanging over the side (this will be easier to remove from the pan, acts as a handle)
- Pour 1/2 cup water into stand mixer and add gelatin to soften for 10 min
- In a large sauce pan, mix sugar, evaporated milk, and 1/4 cup of water and whisk over low heat until sugar dissolves, don’t worry about the brown colour from the milk, that will go away!
- Bring mixture to a gentle boil, and reduce to a simmer, use a candy thermometer and remove from heat when it reaches 250 F, this should take about 20 min
- Add The syrup to the gelatin mixture and beat on low until incorporated
- This is where I split the mixture in half. Add coconut flavour to one, and pandan to the other
- Increase the speed of the whisk to high and beat until fluffy and tripled in volume. Takes about 10 min.
- Repeat for second flavor
- Scrape first mixture into the prepared pan, and layer the other flavour on top
- Allow mixture to set uncovered and not in the refrigerator! For at least 8 hours to overnight
- After the mixture has set, Combine the powered sugar and corn starch.
- ASoft over the marshmallow and remove from the pan,
- Cut into squares about inch sized
- Immediately roll in the powder to set and to avoid getting too sticky
- Store in air tight container for up to 2 weeks
