Strawberries & Champagne Marshmallows
Recently I had a few friends refer to me as the Marshmallow Queen and that is not a title I take lightly, so I’ve got another marshmallow recipe that I’m super excited to share with you! You know I love my bubbly, so I’m bringing you a super easy and delicious recipe for Strawberries & Champagne Marshmallows! I think these might be my best marshmallows yet!
What you’ll need
If you have a stand mixer, you’ll want to use that. If you only have a hand-held mixer, that’s okay too, just warm up your arm! You will also use a candy thermometer, but don’t worry, they’re super easy to use (and super inexpensive to buy)! I’ll walk you through the process below. Lastly, you’ll need an 8×8 pan and parchment paper, wax paper, or foil.
How to prepare your pan
Line a square 8×8 pan with parchment paper. You can use binder clips to hold it in place. You’ll combine the powdered sugar and freeze-dried strawberry powder, and then spread about half of that around the bottom and up the sides of the parchment paper.
How to use a candy thermometer
All you have to do is clip the thermometer to the side of the pot, make sure the tip of the thermometer is in the mixture, but doesn’t touch the bottom of the pot. Then you let the thermometer do all the work! It’s really that easy!
How to make Strawberries & Champagne Marshmallows
You’ll put the gelatin and champagne in a mixing bowl, and set it aside. Then you’ll want to heat all the rest of the ingredients on the stove, first covered for about 4 minutes, then uncovered until it reaches 240 F. Once you uncover the pot, clip the thermometer on and continue heating until it reads 240 F. Then remove the pot from the heat, and carefully remove the thermometer from the pot (the thermometer could be hot to the touch).
Start running the mixer in the champagne and gelatin. Slowly pour in the hot mixture, and then continue mixing for about 12 minutes, until the mixture is white and smooth. Then, using a spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, spread the marshmallow mixture into the prepared pan. You’ll then sprinkle the remaining powdered sugar/freeze dried strawberry powder and then let set for a few hours. Use a knife sprayed with non-stick spray to cut into squares, or you could even cut out shapes with a cookie cutter!
