Ingredients


Measurements:

  • 2 cups (14 oz) superfine sugar
  • 6¾ fl oz warm water
  • 6 tsp powdered unflavored gelatine
  • ½ cup (4 fl oz) cold water
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups (5½ oz) desiccated coconut

    toasted

Instructions

  • 1Grease a 7x11-inch rectangular cake pan. Line the bottom and sides with parchment paper, allowing the paper to hang over all sides.
  • 2Combine the sugar and warm water in a medium saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Brush down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush to dissolve any sugar crystals. Bring to a boil and boil gently, without stirring, for 5 minutes until a candy thermometer reaches 225°F.
  • 3Sprinkle the gelatine over the cold water and stir with a fork to combine. Stir the gelatine mixture into the hot sugar syrup and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture returns to a gentle boil.
  • 4Pour the gelatine mixture into the glass mixing bowl and set aside for 20-30 minutes to cool to room temperature.
  • 5Stir the vanilla into the gelatine mixture. Assemble the mixer using the whisk attachment. Place the bowl onto the mixer. Slowly turn the mixer to AERATE/WHIP setting and whisk for 5 minutes until very thick and white.
  • 6Spoon into the prepared pan and level the surface. Set aside for 2 hours to set.
  • 7Turn the marshmallow out of the pan. Remove and discard parchment paper. Use a wet knife to cut into 24 squares.
  • 8Toss the marshmallow in the coconut and serve.
    Tip: Store the marshmallow in an airtight container.
