Deliciously dreamy and super easy to make, our friends at Sunbeam share with us their scrumptious coconut marshmallow recipe. Topped with crunchy coconut, this cloud-like treat takes on a whole new level of YUM. Slice into bite-size squares for a sweet party food or cut into small chunks to make your hot chocolate even tastier.
What you need:
3/4 cup self raising flour
1/3 cup gelatin
4 cups caster sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 cups shredded coconut,
Place marshmallow into cellophane bags
and tie with coloured ribbon for a
great gift idea!
Combine gelatin and 1 cup of cold water.
Let stand for 5 minutes.
Stir sugar and 2 cups of hot water in a large
saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves.
Bring to boil. Add gelatin mixture; simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes.
Cool to room temperature.
Transfer sugar mixture to the stainless
steel mixing bowl. Add juice.
Using the whisk, begin beating on low speed.
Gradually increase to very high speed over 15 minutes.
Mixture should be thick and hold its shape.
Rinse a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan
with cold water; do not dry.
Line pan with baking paper.
Spread marshmallow mixture into pan.
Sprinkle with enough coconut to cover the surface.
Allow to set at room temperature for 2 hours or until firm.
Cut marshmallow into squares using a wet knife.
Toss in remaining coconut.
