Xtra Sweet Stuff

Ok, I confess - I CANNOT make jelly.
I follow the instructions, but it NEVER sets.
A fact that my family finds hysterically funny!
So, when I see a recipe that calls for 'gelatine', I usually give it a miss, but I sooo wanted to try this one.
Ha! not laughing now, are they? 
No, they are begging - yes begging, for my marshmallows ;-)


If you're a regular visitor, you'll know that I don't do complicated - and this recipe is easy peasy (if a little sticky!).
I used my swiss roll tin for the mixture, which is the perfect size.  I did find the thick marshmallow a bit awkward to spread - the best way was to put dollops on with a spoon and then use a palette knife to level it.


Despite eating testing a few blackberries, I still ended up using about double the amount the recipe called for. I wanted some berry in each piece of marshmallow :-)

If, like me, you've only ever eaten that hermetically sealed, shop bought, pink marshmallow then you MUST try this recipe.
It is melt in your mouth GORGEOUS and the burst of blackberry cuts through the sweetness perfectly.







I am adding this to Joyful Stamper's Inspire Me Fridays
linky party.
