Raspberry Marshmallow Gooeyness!

Another offering for my Christmas gifts in jars project was to make marshmallows. Ever since I was 14 and working in my local coffee shop which served the most sumptuous hot chocolate smothered in marshmallows & cream I have had a love affair with marshmallows.

This seemed like the perfect time to try baking them. After much deliberating I decided on raspberry marshmallows, purely to use up the raspberry puree that was left over from the boyfriend making the James Martin chocolate icebox cake (he was inspired watching him create it at the BBC Good Food Show!).

I followed the recipe on the well-known NotQuiteNigella blog found here.

See below for “action-shot” of the marshmallow mixture being whipped, this was just after the raspberry mix had been added but before it swelled up in size.

Unfortunately I found that by popping them into sealed jars they got too moist and started sticking together making them look slightly unappetizing so they didn’t make their way into the Christmas Jar Project (below).  They did however make a wonderful hot chocolate with marshmallows!
