Today’s Valentine’s Day idea is a small overnight project! They are one of my favourites!
Prepare in the evening and wake up to something delicious in the morning.
Initially I planned to make white chocolate spheres and I did try on the weekend. But the filling (a white chocolate mousse) was a mess and the spheres were way to thick at the top. A spoon was useless… maybe a jackhammer would have helped, ha. So I decided to postpone that idea until I have figured it out.
Instead I present you my second ever batch of homemade marshmallows. Pink Candyfloss Marshmallows with lot’s of sparkles on them.
Making them is pretty easy and they are so much better than shop bought marshmallows! Just be careful not to dust them too much. It sort of crusts over and it isn’t a very pleasant mouthfeel. That is also what I did wrong the first time. I dusted them a LOT, like snow during Winter in Norway! (I love Norway!)
This time I used it sparingly and at a few spots it was still to much! But I’m simply assuming now that this is normal. :)
