I love marshmallows, perfect when there is a BBQ going but seeing as this is Ireland it is usually one day during the three months of Summer. Marshmallows are not just perfect for BBQ they complete a hot chocolate for those really cold nights, especially this time for the year.

250g Sugar
250g Glucose
85g Water
12g Leaf Gelatin – soaked in cold water
60g Egg Whites


  1. Make an Italian meringue by bring the first three ingredients to 127’ and cool slightly before adding to the stiffly beaten egg whites.
  2. Add the dissolved gelatin until the mix begins to set
  3. Spread onto parchment paper lined tray with icing sugar on the bottom and the top and allow to set overnight, and then cut into squares, alternatively you could fill a piping bag and pipe into individual shapes.
