Recipe Directions


These fluffy treats will melt in your mouth and leave you begging for more:

  3. With mixer on a low speed, carefully drizzle sugar syrup into gelatine. Beat on high for 15 minutes or until very thick. Beat in 1 tbsp vanilla extract.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk 1/2 cup icing sugar and 1/4 cup cornflour. Line a 33cm by 22cm baking pan with baking paper; dust heavily with cornflour mixture. Transfer marshmallow mixture to prepared pan, spreading with greased spatula. Dust top with remaining cornflour mixture; with hands, pat to spread evenly to corners. Let it stand for 6 hours or until firm.
