We’re craving a trip out into the woods, thanks to this week’s moodboard Call of the Wild. However, we’re thinking roasting homemade marshmallows on our office’s roof will do right about now. Get your tastedbuds ready for this awesome recipe:
What you need:
2 cups (385g) evaporated cane juice (organic sugar) or granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups (350g) water
1 tablespoon honey
4 packets (28g total) unflavored gelatin
2 egg whites at room temperature*
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
What you do:
1. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, 3/4 cups of water, and honey. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and boil until the sugar mixture reaches 230 degrees (the soft ball stage).
2. While the sugar and water come to a boil, sprinkle the gelatin over the remaining 3/4 cup of water in a small bowl, and let rest. Put the egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer, and beat on high until stiff peaks form.
3. When the sugar mixture comes to temperature, remove from heat and whisk in the gelatin mixture. With the mixer on medium-low, slowly pour in the sugar and gelatin mixture, and add in vanilla. Slowly raise the speed to high, and beat for 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, prepare a 13×9 inch pan (or slightly smaller), with non-stick cooking spray. When the marshmallow has whipped for 10 minutes, pour into the prepared pan. Working quickly, use wet hands to press the marshmallow into the pan. Use a wet spatula to smooth the lumps. Let sit on the counter, uncovered, for 4 hours, or overnight.
5. Spray a smooth work surface with non-stick cooking spray. Remove the marshmallow and place on the sprayed surface. Using a large knife dipped in water, cut the marshmallow into squares, dipping the knife in water as needed. (You can also use cookie cutters.) Toss the marshmallows in powdered sugar.
6. Get your fire started, skewers out, and don’t forget to bring chocolate, graham crackers, and beer. Your party is about to get started.
