Homemade Marshmallows

Last night I was in the mood to bake something. It was one of those moods where I was looking to conquer something new that I haven't done before. I decided to pull out my Candymaking book by Ruth Kendrick. While flipping through the pages, the homemade marshmallow recipe caught my eye. Actually, the photo below caught my eye. I have an egg shaped candy mould to make impressions that are shown in the book, so I decided to give it a try.

I spooned my mixture from the recipe into the cavities I made in flour. After a couple of hours there were firm enough to handle. I dusted the sticky marshmallow with powdered sugar.

The following day I dipped them into tempered milk chocolate. They were delicious! The marshmallows are softer and tastier than marshmallows that you buy in the bags.

I also posted a video on YouTube which can be found here.

  2. Lovely tempering job! I have a chocolate tempering machine and I still haven't mastered how to do it. Your marshmallow look great, I'll have to give it a try someday.

  3. Sugarbean, my goal is to get a Chocovision tempering machine by the end of the year or for Christmas. What brand of machine do you have?

  6. Wow. Your marshmallows look amazing! I can only imagine how much better they must taste than store bought. I think I might have to try it although I have a feeling mine won't look at fancy =o)
