These homemade marshmallows are far superior to the store bought variety, and they're not that hard to make. They taste great in hot cocoa.


Serves: 18 

  • 1 cup (180g) icing sugar for dusting
  • 2 cups (440g) white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups (285ml) water, divided
  • 4 tablespoons gelatine
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:8hours resting  ›  Ready in:8hours50min 

  1. Dust a 23cm square pan generously with icing sugar.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat stir together white sugar, golden syrup and 3/4 cup (190ml) water. Heat until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball.
  3. While syrup is heating place remaining water in a metal bowl and sprinkle gelatine over the surface. Place bowl over simmering water until gelatine has dissolved completely. Keep in a warm place until syrup has come to temperature. Remove syrup from heat and whisk gelatine mixture into hot syrup. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to soft peaks. Continue to beat, pouring syrup mixture into egg whites in a thin stream, until the egg whites are very stiff. Stir in vanilla. Spread evenly in prepared pan and let rest 8 hours or overnight before cutting.
