Toasted Coconut Marshmallows: Sweets with an Aussie Twist

I love flødeboller, I love chocolate mousse, I looove chocolate macaroons. Basically I just love anything that requires beating egg whites. That’s one of the reasons I can’t get enough of making marshmallows. Another reason is that I have finally figured out why my last couple of batches turned moist and sticky in no time: I left out the 24 hours of air-drying. Silly billy!

Vanilla and Raspberry Marshmallows

Sometimes inspiration moves in mysterious ways and at other times it’s painfully obvious. In this case I went to the food festival EAT 2010 in Øksnehallen, where I caught Thomas Parry (the head pastry chef at Hotel d’Angleterre)  demonstrating some of his mad cooking skills. Among the many delicious things he guided his sugar-hungry audience through were some raspberry flavoured marshmallows. So I went home and pulled out ye olde Foodbeam recipe. The only changes needed were to remove one of the vanilla beans and to add a deciliter of mashed and deseeded raspberries after the gelatine. (But don’t forget to use pasteurised egg whites if you’re in Denmark). The result was a whole batch of fluffy and bouncy marshmallows with a delicate yet distinct raspberry and vanilla flavour. Nice! And the cocoa nibs on top added a nice dry chocolate twist to the classic. That and it made me feel even closer to Thomas. Do you think he would mind it if I called him Tom Tom?
