Strawberry Marshallows! (With Fresh Strawberry Puree)…

Tuesday July 24 2012

Those who know me know I have a “thing” for marshmallow.  I LOVE IT! Seriously, I’ll put it on, or in, or around, anything and everything!  I’ve done homemade versions of marvelous marshmallow in all its guises: for piping, for frosting, for filling, for toasting, for eating, and/or for licking (always!)

Super-dope Strawberry Marshmallows!

And whilst I do take pride in trying to make what I can from scratch, I can’t take all the credit here. It’s not like I “invented” strawberry marshmallows, so credit where credit’s due – THIS is the best recipe and set of instructions for strawberry marshmallows I have come across!  So read/print the original recipe, but please note my tweaks:

As there were no pictures to accompany the original recipe, I snapped some of the process, which I’ve included below.  OMG how tricky was that – pouring hot, molten sugar into a glass bowl whilst snapping away with a big-ass DSLR?!

You keep beating the marshmallow mix, steadily increasing from low to high speed for 10 minutes…

You will know that your marshmallows are “done” once the mix has (a) more than doubled in size, and (b) it actually feels like a light, soft, marshmallow-y goo.

Then, you pour it into your foil-lined & grease-sprayed pan (I used a 9-inch square cake tin), and leave to set at room temperature for 10+ hours.  I know – it’s such a loooooong wait, but soooooo worth it!

Urgh! The 10-hour setting time was torture! But lookie lookie what you get afterwards…

Eat & enjoy! Yummmm!!
