52 Weeks of Baking: Week 2 – Homemade Marshmallows
Hi! We’re back, it’s week 2!
I’m a little late posting this here, haven’t been feeling too good recently so couldn’t bring myself to write here sooner. Anyways, it’s here now!
The theme for this week’s challenge was “Candies”. Basically, you could choose to make any kind of candy yourself (caramel, sugar candy, etc.) or have them incorporated in your bakes. I decided to make Marshmallows from scratch because I had never done it before! Spoiler alert – totally worth it!
If you’ve ever worked with sugar syrup or caramel before, then making marshmallows yourself will be a piece of cake for you. I had honestly no idea that it was this easy. But even if you have not worked with sugar before, it will still be easy. The end result will be delicious sugary fluff. The most difficult part is honestly waiting until it the marshmallows are set so you can start eating them.
I honestly cannot wait until it will be summer and I can grill these beauties next to a fire to get this crunchy caramelized coating… Although, now that I think about it, I’m not sure if it’s an Estonian thing?
In any case, if you want to try making them, I used this recipe by the Casual Foodist. It’s a simple one and doesn’t use corn syrup as many others do.
Good luck and let me know if you liked it! Good baking!
