Super-Easy Strawberry Marshmallows

30 MIN
3 H
about 36 marshmallows



  1. Line a 20-cm (8-inch) square dish with plastic wrap and oil lightly.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the sugar and cornstarch together. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin on the strawberry purée. Let soften for 5 minutes. Add the sugar and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the gelatin. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Set the bowl over a saucepan partially filled with cold water; the water should touch the bottom of the bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until the mixture has cooled to room temperature and forms stiff peaks, 5 to 7 minutes (or about 15 minutes if the mixture is not whipped over cold water). Spread evenly in the dish and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 3 hours.
  5. Lightly dust a clean surface with the icing sugar mixture. Unmould the marshmallow and remove the plastic wrap. Using a knife with a lightly moistened blade, cut the marshmallow into 4-cm (1 1/2-inch) squares. Roll each square in the icing sugar mixture, shaking off any excess. Place the marshmallows on a cookie sheet and let warm to room temperature. If necessary, roll a second time in the icing sugar mixture.
  6. The marshmallows can be stored for several days in an airtight container at room temperature.


  1. Last note : 2 bags of gelatin = 14 g (7 sheets)

  2. The recipe is much better explained in French, but great success! I even made it with frozen blackcurrant and it was THE BOMB! A few notes for those in Europe: You can basically interchange 300g of any fruits (frozen mango, frozen raspberries...) to make your fruit purée and use a sieve to filter all impurities. The light corn sirup can be exchanged by glucose sirup, and it needs to be added when beating in the stand-up mixer. Bon appétit!!

  3. The recipe does not state where you put in the corn syrup. Which I had realised after cooking the strawberry, sugar and gelatine. Secondly the interchange with words of beat and whip confused me, one or the other. I used my electric mixer to beat the mixture, then I noticed I needed to whip in the"whipped" comment. I heated and sturred with the glucose again. NOt sure what would happen, well I nearly have chewing gum! Not that happy. Recipe didn't work
