Marshmallow & Pretzel Snowman

Ingredients

14g Powdered gelatine
450g Caster sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Coconut oil
50g Icing sugar
50g Cornflour
Chocolate for melting
Pretzels sticks
Water

Instructions

Mix together 100ml of cold water and 14g of gelatin in a bowl and leave to sit.

Add the sugar and 170ml of cold water to a pan and bring to a boil over a medium or high heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar.

Decrease the heat to a low simmer for 20 minutes or until the temperature drops to 110C. This is when you pour the gelatine and water in to a blender or food processor and blend on the lowest setting. Slowly and gradually pour in the sugar water (careful it will be hot) and mix.

Add the vanilla extract and blend for 20 minutes or until the mixture becomes thick and cool.

Line a square baking tin with baking paper or grease with oil. Mix the icing sugar and cornflour together and sprinkle some on top of the baking paper or oiled tray.

Spoon the marshmallow mixture in to the tin, making sure the surface is smooth by using a knife. Dust with some of the icing sugar and cornflour.

Cover the tin with clingfilm and leave on the side over night.

Now that the marshmallow has set, cut out your desired shape. Add three marshmallows to a toothpick and add pretzel sticks for arms and legs. Melt chocolate and form the snowman's features. Finally use an orange sweet for the nose.

Garnish hot drinks with your snowman creations or add to a plate for a festive snack.
