Ingredients

  • 100 ml Water
  • 3/4 cup Maple Syrup or Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Gelatin
  • 100 ml Water
  • 1 Egg White at room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • Arrowroot for sprinkling

Instructions

  • Place 100ml of water and Maple Syrup/Honey in a saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium heat.
  • At the same time sprinkle the gelatin over 100ml of water and allow to thicken.
  • Once the mixture is boiling reduce the heat slightly and add the thickened gelatin mixture, whisking vigorously to incorporated the gelatin and ensure no lumps remain.
  • Return to medium heat and return to the boil and boil for 1 minute, continuing to whisk.
  • Place the egg white in a clean bowl of a kitchen stand mixer with a whisk attachment.
  • Place mixture on medium and whisk until the egg white is frothy.
  • Pour the hot mixture in to the bowl, pouring slowly along the edge of the bowl.
  • Turn whisk to high and whisk for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add the Vanilla and whisk on high until firm but not set (another minute)
  • The mixture should be shiny and thick, but still able to be piped and spread.
  • Spread into a greased and lined dish or pipe out onto a greased and lined tray.
  • Allow to sit at room temperature overnight.
  • Once set sprinkle the arrowroot over Marshmallow pieces (this makes them less sticky and easier to handle). Alternatively, roll the pieces in arrowroot or you could even use desiccated coconut.
