Chocolate Marshmallow Marshmallows…What’s not to love? Add in some chocolate and you’ve got chocolate marshmallowy heaven! These chocolate marshmallows are the perfect gift all by themselves, but why not couple them with a jar of Hot Chocolate Mix and you’ve got one happy chocolate lover!
What You’ll Need:
6 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin
1 cup of water
2 cups of dark corn syrup
2 cups of organic cane sugar
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons of chocolate extract
6 tablespoons of cocoa
Butter to coat your dish
Cocoa to dust your dish
Dissolve gelatin in a cup of water in the bowl of your mixer.
In a very large pot melt sugar, corn syrup and water and the bring to a slow boil. You want to bring the mixture up between soft ball and firm ball (240 F to 248 F), but not actually to firm ball stage. (Note: You want somewhere in the 245 F to 246 F.)
Once the mixture has come up to temperature pour the chocolate mixture into the gelatin and beat on high for 10-12 minutes until thick and fluffy.
While the mixture is heating butter and dust a dish with cocoa.
Pour marshmallow mixture into the coated dish and let set until completely cool. Once marshmallows set up dust your fingers with cocoa, dip a knife into very hot water and cut into squares. (Note: The cocoa makes it easier to handle the marshmallows as the sides can be a bit sticky.)
Store in an airtight container in a single layer. And as I mentioned above they’re perfect in a steaming cup of hot chocolate!
Notes: No notes for this one. The chocolate speaks for itself! ;o)
