Hello and welcome to Todd’s kitchen. Marshmallows are one of those treats that everyone has tried but would you believe you can make them in your own home and make them taste better then what you would buy in the shops. So join me today as we make home made marshmallows. To start of with into a cup filled with three quarters a cup of warm water im going to place in two tablespoons of unflavoured gelatine next into a pot on medium to high heat, pour in three quarters a cup of water Then one cup of sugar Then one cut of glucose syrup or corn syrup exactly the same thing just different names then keep stirring until the
sugars completely dissolved Once all the sugar has dissolved and started boiling we are going to use a candy thermometer. Now i highly recommend that you buy one their very in expensive and and they work very well So we are going to bring it up to one hundred and forty degrees celsius or two hundred and eighty degrees
fahrenheit So leave that in there and keep an eye on the temperature so don’t touch it just let it boil and don’t stir it, what ever you do don’t stir it Next i have a baking tray lined with non stick baking paper I have some icing sugar or bakers sugar just give it a very good icing over the baking paper as you can see its at one hundred and twenty degrees celsius which is the firm ball stage so what we are going to do now is put the gelatine into the microwave for a minute so it will be nice and hot when we start to mix it in Now into a mixing bowl pour in our gelatine as you can see its now at the right temperature so take it off now just slowly pour the sugar mix into the bowl just very slow so now gradually turn the speed up not to fast to soon other wise it will splash every where and this is really hot once its on full speed continue to mix for ten minutes until soft peak stage now add a teaspoon of vanilla extract You can see how its nice and thick soft peaks are forming Work quick because it starts to stick to much so quickly get it up scoop out as much as we possibly can out of this and straight onto the baking tray next give it a very good dusting with icing sugar Don’t be afraid to out to much on, you can’t. More the better its going to prevent that paper I’m about to put on top from sticking next with more baking paper put it on top and use the paper to push it out You can make these as thin as you like or as thick as you like im going for a uniform thickness here we are going to let this sit here and cool down completely for about four hours I have had these sitting here for about four hours all up and look at this lovely marshmallow goodness when its this thin I’m just going to use a pizza cutter as its much easier way to cut it If you choose to make them thicker I recommend you use scissors they will make it allot easier to cut because they are stick in the middle So use scissors if you make it thicker as you can see its already sticking to the pizza cutter cutting through it with a knife is not practical There we have it a lovely marshmallow as a hint with these I have made these thinner like these because I’m using them for a recipe which will be up some time next week The good thing about marshmallows is you can make them as thick as you like. I have made them before and had them that thick. They take a bit longer to set so you will want to leave them overnight night you can make them as thick or thin as you like so either way they work out perfectly So once you have cut them up just dip the edges in some more icing sugar just so their not sticky and then place them on a plate and there we have it, a plate full of yummy yummy marshmallows these look delicious im fact I’m going to have one now oh yummy that is really really good i don’t know what it is but home made ones always taste better then what you buy in the shops, these are delicious and you can roast them over a barbecue to.
