Home Sweet Home Bakealong 47: Coconut Marshmallows

November 15, 2015

I’m going to hang my head in shame and show you this in the interest of balance. This *should* have been a jar of marshmallows.

Marshmallow fail = marshmallow fluff

Beckie shows what they should look like:

Fail #1 I burned the desiccated coconut really badly.

Fail #2 My sugar thermometer broke a while back, so while I tried to do the soft ball test I clearly didn’t boil for long enough.

Fail #3 I got VegGel rather than gelatine which I think is probably not as strong.

One day I’ll have another bash at this, but in the meantime you’ll find Mr B eating this as icing / with a spoon from the jar and me eating it on top of hot chocolate. By the way, the coloured bit were meant to be around the outside of the marshmallow

    Oh no! Haha, at least it’s still edible. I like the idea of it spooned on top of a hot chocolate.
