Step by step method

  • Step 1

    We prepare gelatin in advance by soaking it in the specified amount of clean water.

  • Step 2

    Boil the berry slightly, then grind it into a pulp through a fine sieve.

  • Step 3

    In a saucepan, mix the raspberry puree with sugar, stir, bring to a boil, then remove the sweet mass from the heat.

  • Step 4

    When the raspberry puree has cooled, add the swollen gelatin to it, mix thoroughly until we get a homogeneous mass. Now you need to beat the raspberry-gelatin mixture with a mixer for at least 15 minutes until it looks like a soft airy mousse.

  • Step 5

    We cover the form with foil so that it covers the bottom and slightly goes beyond the sides. You can take a silicone mold by lubricating it with vegetable oil. Pour the future marshmallow into a mold and send it to the refrigerator overnight (8-10 hours) to solidify.

  • Step 6

    Now the marshmallow is ready, it can be taken out of the mold, cut into portioned pieces, decorated with nuts, coconut, chocolate and served.

Tips & variations

  • Choose a dry and cool place to store homemade marshmallows.

  • To prevent marshmallows from sticking together, roll them in powdered sugar.

  • If you replace about ΒΌ of the sugar with molasses, the life of homemade marshmallows will last about a week. And the middle of even a dried dessert will be soft and airy.

  • The key to the perfect marshmallow shape is long and continuous whipping. In this matter, it is strictly forbidden to go on about your own laziness. The required time for whipping the ingredients at each stage is absolutely not in vain.

  • You can give marshmallows a bright and interesting color using ordinary food coloring.

  • To form a thin crust on the marshmallow, it must be dried at room temperature for a day.
