Recipe

Ingredients

  • Gingerbread Spice
: 2 tablespoons ground ginger
, 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
, 1 tablespoon ground cloves
, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon powdered gelatin
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Brown food colouring
  • Corn starch

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Combine the ingredients for the gingerbread spice in a small bowl. Line a square pan with parchment paper and grease the paper with some oil.
  2. Pour 1/3 cup of cold water into the bowl of an electric mixer and sprinkle the powdered gelatin on top. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the sugar and 1/4 cup cold water in a small pot and set to medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar has melted.
  4. Ttach a candy thermometer to the pot and boil the sugar until it reaches 238F. Brush the sides of the pot with a wet pastry brush if sugar crystals stick to the sides.
  5. Add the hot sugar to the gelatin and stir the mixture by hand whisking for a few minutes to slightly cool. Then beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 8-10 minutes, until soft peaks form. Then add the gingerbread spice mix and brown food colouring and mix well.
  6. Pour the marshmallow into a square pan and let set for 2-3 hours (or up to overnight), until the marshmallow is firm.
  7. Dust the surface of the marshmallows in corn starch. Dip a cookie cutter in corn starch and cut out gingerbread man shapes. Flip the marshmallows over and coat the underside in a layer of cornstarch. Bounce the marshmallows in a sieve to remove any excess corn starch and enjoy!
