Ingredients

MARSHMALLOW:

  • 125ml cold water
  • 40g powdered gelatine
  • 250ml cold water
  • 200g Perfect Sweet® xylitol
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp strawberry essence or natural pink colouring

TO ASSEMBLE:

  • 500g dark bitter chocolate (see recipe) or good quality 85% dark chocolate
  • 100g pistachios (optional)
  • 100g cranberries
  • 80g toasted coconut
  • Vanilla & strawberry marshmallows cut into 1cm cubes
Method

1. Make marshmallow first: place cold water in a clean bowl, sprinkle over gelatine and whisk to dissolve. Place 250ml water and xylitol in a small saucepan and heat until dissolved. Add the gelatine mixture and stir to combine. Gently boil for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool. Do not allow to set.

2. Divide mixture between 2 large bowls. Stir the vanilla into the first bowl, and then stir the strawberry essence into the second bowl. Using an electric beater, beat each flavour on high speed for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Pour the fluffy mixture into 2 lined 18cm square cake pans and set in the fridge. When ready, cut into cubes with a wet knife.

3. Place the dark bitter chocolate into a bowl and melt over hot water. Remove bowl from hot water. Mix the pistachios (optional), cranberries, coconut and the white and pink marshmallow cubes in a large bowl and mix with the melted dark bitter chocolate (or good quality 85% dark chocolate). Spread into the prepared tin. Refrigerate to set. Cut into desired serving size.
