Orange Marshmallows


Prep time: approx. 1h 30 min + overnight for marshmallows to set                                                                                        



12 g non-flavoured gelatin

45g orange flavoured jello

200 ml water

200 g sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

Confectioner sugar to dust



Line a glass tray (22cmx22cm) with a parchment paper.

Sprinkle non-flavoured gelatin over 50 ml of cold water; leave it to stand for 15 minutes. Then gently simmer the gelatin over low heat until completely dissolves.

In a bowl combine sugar and orange flavoured jello. Pour over 150 ml of hot water and stir until well combined and sugar completely dissolved.

Combine both gelatin mixes together, stir well. Leave to cool until room temperature then with a hand mixer whisk until soft peaks. Transfer to the lined tray, smooth the top and leave to stand overnight, uncovered, at the room temperature.

Cover your working surface with confectioners’ sugar; invert the marshmallows over your working surface. Peel off the parchment paper and cut into squares.
