Medium 30 Minutes



For the recipe  Faker To Baker Marshmallows


2 Egg Whites
Dr. Oetker Platinum Grade Leaf Gelatine
100 g Granulated Sugar
50 g Dr. Oetker Liquid Glucose
1 tsp Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
25 g Cornflour

Sugar Thermometer:

To Decorate Select From The Following:

150 g Dr. Oetker 35% Milk Chocolate
150 g Dr. Oetker 72% Extra Dark Chocolate
89 g Dr. Oetker Bright and Bold 4-Cell




Grease and line an 18cm (7inch) square deep cake tin with baking parchment. Whisk the egg whites until very stiff. Set aside.


Cut up the Gelatine Leaves into a small heatproof bowl. Add 60ml cold water. Leave to soak for 5 minutes. Put the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water until the leaves have melted. Remove the bowl and set aside.


Put the sugar in a small saucepan with the Liquid Glucose and 50ml water. Put a sugar thermometer in the saucepan. Heat gently, stirring until the sugar has melted. Raise the heat slightly and let the mixture bubble until it becomes syrupy and reaches 118°C (245°F) on the thermometer. Remove from heat


Whisk the Egg White mixture again while gently pouring over the hot sugar syrup in a steady stream. Continue whisking as you gradually pour in the liquid Gelatine and add the Dr Oetker Vanilla Extract to form a thick, glossy meringue-like mixture (this takes about 5 minutes).


Scrape the fluffy mixture into the prepared tin using a spatula and smooth off the top. Leave in a cool, dry place (not the fridge) for 3 to 4 hours until firm and set.


To finish, dust the work surface with the cornflour, and turn the marshmallow on to it. Carefully peel away the parchment. Using a large bladed knife, cut into 5 strips and then 25 chunks (the mixture will be quite sticky). Toss the pieces of marshmallow in the cornflour until lightly coated and serve. Decorate with a combination of chocolate, sprinkles and chopped nuts.
