I am kind of addicted to making homemade marshmallow at the moment. It is cheap, easy and delicious! The original slice recipe used a different marshmallow recipe but I like the one I have made before, so used that instead. There is a bit of left-over marshmallow so you can either reduce it a bit or spread it in another dish to set on its own.
Rice Bubbles and Marshmallow Slice
180g white chocolate, chopped and melted
2 1/2 cups rice bubbles
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
2/3 cup hot water
2 Tbs gelatine
2/3 cup cold water
1 tsp vanilla essence
pink food colouring
100s & 1000s
Mix melted white chocolate and rice bubbles together. Spread into the base of a baking paper-lined slice tin. Place in the fridge to set.
Grease and line a large slice tin.
Place sugar and hot water in saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves and syrup is clear.
Place gelatine in a bowl and our over cold water. Use a hand whisk to combine. Pour gelatine mixture into hot sugar syrup and cook, stirring constantly, until the gelatine has dissolved and mixture is clear. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Pour cooled mixture into a large bowl and use electric beaters on high to beat for 5-10 minutes or until the mixture is very thick. Add the vanilla and pink colouring and beat to combine.
Quickly spread marshmallow over rice bubble base and sprinkle 100s & 1000s over the top.
Leave to set for an hour then slice into squares with a wet knife.
