Directions: For the Homemade Cotton Candy Marshmallows:
Step 1: Setting the Scene
Create a cozy ambiance in your kitchen, as you're about to embark on a sweet marshmallow-making adventure.
Step 2: Gelatin Bloom
In a large mixing bowl, combine the unflavored gelatin and 1/2 cup of cold water. Allow the gelatin to bloom for about 10 minutes until it becomes soft and spongy.
Step 3: Sugar Syrup
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, and the remaining 1/2 cup of cold water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan and allow the mixture to reach 240°F (115°C), which is the soft-ball stage.
Step 4: Whipping Magic
While the sugar syrup is heating, whip the gelatin mixture with an electric mixer on low speed, gradually increasing to high. Whip until it becomes thick and fluffy.
Step 5: Cotton Candy Dreams
Add 1-2 teaspoons of Dolce Foglia Cotton Candy Extract to the whipped marshmallow mixture. This is where the magic truly begins. Close your eyes and imagine the whimsical aroma of cotton candy swirling around you as you gently infuse the marshmallows. Mix until the cotton candy extract is fully incorporated.
Step 6: Sugar Syrup Magic
Once the sugar syrup reaches 240°F (115°C), remove it from heat. While whipping the marshmallow mixture on low, slowly pour the hot sugar syrup into the bowl. Be cautious as the mixture will be very hot.
Step 7: Whipping to Perfection
Take a bite into your Cotton Candy S'mores and let the flavors transport you to a world where campfires meet cotton candy clouds. Enjoy the crunch of the graham cracker, the gooey chocolate, and the cotton candy-infused marshmallow in every delightful bite.
Step 8: Marshmallow Setting
Dust a 9x13-inch (23x33 cm) baking dish with powdered sugar. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the dish, spreading it evenly. Dust the top with more powdered sugar. Allow the marshmallows to set for 4-6 hours or overnight.
For the S'mores:
Step 9: Assembly and Creativity
Once your cotton candy marshmallows have set, cut them into squares or use cookie cutters to create fun shapes. Place them on graham crackers and add a piece of your favorite chocolate bar.
Step 10: Savor the Whimsy
Create a delightful sandwich by placing another graham cracker on top of the marshmallow and chocolate. Get creative with your Homemade Cotton Candy S'mores by decorating the edges with colorful sprinkles, crushed candies, or even crushed cotton candy itself.
