Quick Homemade Marshmallows ~ Easy ~ any shape, color or flavor !

This is actually a recipe I make as a topping to cupcakes see HERE and for sweet treats, see HERE. I always have a little left over and came up with this idea. Make your cupcakes/sweet treats and use this recipe as a topping, or make a batch and do the following: Quick Homemade Marshmallow {Quantity below will be enough for 6 HIGH toppings or at least 40 small marshmallows as in the pic above} 1/4 cup Cold Water 1 TB Powdered Gelatin, Plain 1/4 cup Boiling Water 1/2 t Caramel Essence {you can use any flavor you like} 1 cup Caster Sugar Few drops Food Coloring - optional Sprinkles/Sugar Sprinkles/Chocolate - whatever you like to decorate - optional Icing Sugar, optional ** 1.) Place the Cold Water in a medium mixing bowl - sprinkle the Gelatin over - wait until it gets spongy - microwave on HIGH for 20 seconds until clear and dissolved. 2.) Add the Boiling Water and Essence of your choice and mix {if using coloring - add this now and keep mixing}. 3.) Whilst beating, add the Caster Sugar gradually, beat until a thick meringue consistency has formed {5 - 8 minutes} - as soon as stiff peaks form and it gets sticky it is ready. 4.) Scoop mixture into a piping bag and use as you wish - the shape will stay the way you pipe it. Sprinkle any decorations over as soon as possible, especially in very cold weather, as the outside of the marshmallow dries fairly quickly. Chill at least two hours. **If making shapes only - make sure to pipe the marshmallow out on a well powdered {Icing Sugar} piece of aluminium foil - makes lifting easier and "seals" the bottom at the same time. Have fun and remember the shapes, colors and flavors are endless ! Later, Linking up with these cool parties:
