<p>Not our local treat, but still incredibly good. In the movies people often gather around the open fire and enjoy roasting them. Yes, we are talking about marshmallows. Super easy to make, yet the taste is not compromised. Around Christmas we mostly indulge in sweets and hot beverages. Marshmallows in hot chocolate or cocoa combine both. </p>
Soften the sheets of gelatine in a small bowl, filled with cold water. Weight the egg whites and leave them in another bowl.
You can put the egg whites in a stand mixer if you have one.
In a saucepan, prepare the syrup. Cook 85g water and the sugar over a medium high heat, until the liquid reaches 121°C / 250°F. Immediately pour the syrup over the egg whites and start mixing. Gently remove the excess water of the gelatine sheets and add the sheets to the mixture. Mix for 20 minutes.
Add spices to the mixture of water and sugar for an extra kick.
Line the baking tray with parchment paper and drizzle with oil lightly, so that the marshmallows don't stick. Pour the mixture in a piping bag and pipe the marshmallows onto the baking tray.
Let it rest for two hours in the refrigerator, then roll the marshmallows in icing sugar.
Store in the airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days or indulge right away with hot cocoa.
