Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons powdered gelatine
345g caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
coloured sanding sugar or hundreds and thousands, to decorate

Coating

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons icing sugar
2 tablespoons cornflour

Method

  1. Lightly spray 3 large trays with oil. To make the coating, sift the icing sugar and cornflour together. Dust some of the coating over the trays.
  2. Slowly sprinkle the gelatine over 160 ml cold water in a shallow microwave-safe bowl and set aside for 5 minutes. Heat in the microwave for 30–45 seconds on High (100%) or until the gelatine has dissolved.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the sugar and 160 ml water in a medium saucepan and stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat. Whisk in the dissolved gelatine. Set aside to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
  4. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and use an electric mixer with a whisk attachment to whisk on high speed until thick. Add the vanilla and continue to whisk until mixture is very thick and holds its shape, about 8–10 minutes, depending on your mixer.
  5. Dollop spoonfuls of the marshmallow mixture onto the prepared trays. Stand for about 1 hour, until set.
  6. Sprinkle the marshmallows with decorations. Put a spoonful of the remaining coating in a tea strainer and carefully dust around the edges of the marshmallows so they’re not too sticky to handle. If you get any coating on the decorations simply brush it off gently with a soft, dry pastry brush.

Notes

  • Keep in an airtight container for 2–3 days.

    You can also set the mixture in a 20 x 30 cm (8 x 12 in) slice tin, lined with non-stick baking paper that is then sprayed lightly with oil. Once set, turn out onto a clean surface and use a large knife sprayed lightly with oil to cut the marshmallow into bite-sized pieces. Toss in hundreds and thousands, toasted coconut or even coloured coconut.
