Good morning everyone.
I made these for the girl next door for her birthday, they are super fluffy and perfect for a child’s birthday party.
All kids love marshmallows…
Here is the recipe, enjoy!
- 4 1/2 teaspoons gelatin powder
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) cold water
- 3/4 cup (170 g) regular sugar
- 1/2 cups (125 ml) glucose
- 1/4 cup (65 ml) water (extra)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Stir together the 1/2 cup (125 ml) cold water and the gelatin powder and set aside for 5 minutes.
Put the sugar, half the glucose and the water into a pan and bring to the boil. Boil until the temperature reaches 250 ˚F/120 ˚C.
Put the remaining ¼ cup (65 ml) glucose into a mixing bowl and beat on a low speed. Heat the gelatin in the microwave for 30 seconds, then pour it into the mixing bowl.
Carefully pour in the boiled sugar mixture (which is 250 ˚F/120 ˚C) into the mixing bowl and beat on a low speed for 5 minutes.
Increase the speed to high and mix for another 5 minutes and add the vanilla.
Mix for another 5 minutes.
I use a Whoopie silicone mat from Silikonmart, and a wide, circular tip.
Grease the mat with some non-stick baking spray, then pipe out little mounds of marshmallow mixture.
Now dust liberally with powdered sugar and leave them for 5 minutes, then remove from the mat and roll in some more powdered sugar.
Or, sprinkle over some nonpareils or sprinkles.
Leave to dry for 5 minutes.
Roll in some powdered sugar, and they’re done.
I made an extra batch of the marshmallow mixture to use as a “filling”. Pink, of course..
Pipe onto one of the white marshmallow pillows and sandwich together to make it look like a whoopie pie.
Repeat with the remaining marshmallows.
I hope you are inspired to make these for the next children’s party in your house..
Hugs from me to you.
