Father's Day Beer and Chocolate Marshmallows

Our marshmallows in beer and chocolate are unusual enough to make him feel pretty special that you went to all this trouble!

Preparation time: 30 mins
Setting time 1 hour
Total time: 1 hour 30 mins
Servings: 4 (about 22 marshmallows in total)

Ingredients

1/3 cup and a separate 1/4 cup of flat dark beer (light beers will create bitter marshmallows

1 1/2 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

3/4 cup of granulated sugar

A pinch of salt

1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of corn syrup

10-12 ounces of milk chocolate

2-3 teaspoons of canola oil (for thinning the chocolate, if necessary)

 

How to make your Father's Day Beer & Chocolate Marshmallows:

 

1) You need to flatten your beer, so the best thing to do is to open the beer and let it sit unopened overnight. If you’ve forgotten to do this, then pour the beer into a mixing bowl and stir with a balloon whisk, which will get rid of most of the carbon dioxide.

 

2) Take out a bread baking pan (around 8 x 4 inches) and spray it with nonstick cooking oil. If you have no nonstick spray, line your baking pan with parchment paper, and tape the flaps onto the outside so the paper does not move around when spooning in the marshmallow mixture.

 

Use kitchen shears to cut accurate parchment shapes.

 

3) Now, get out a stand mixer and sprinkle in the gelatin. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla extract and 1/3 cup of your flat beer with a balloon whisk, and add to the gelatin in the stand mixer bowl.

 

4) Whisk the mixture using the stand mixer until there are no lumps.

 

5) In a medium saucepan, add the sugar, salt, corn syrup, and the remaining 1/4 cup of your flat beer, and heat on a medium-high setting until the mixture begins to boil. The mixture should be foaming and nearly fill up the pan (be careful that it doesn’t boil over!)

 

6) Place a candy or meat thermometer into the sugary mixture and check that it has reached 225-230°F, and then allow it to bubble away for another 5 minutes before taking off heat.

 

7) Turn on your stand mixer again (containing the gelatin and beer mixture) to a low speed setting, and pour in the sugar and beer mixture slowly, allowing the syrup to drip down the sides of the bowl.

 

8) Once both mixtures are combined in the stand mixer, turn the setting to high and whisk for 8-10 minutes. The mixture should become very thick and glossy.

 

9) Spoon the marshmallow mixture into the greased / lined baking pan and leave it for at least 12 hours (overnight is preferable) to cure.

 

10) Rub the top of the marshmallow mixture with some powdered sugar and turn it out onto a wooden cutting board. Rub the top (now the other side of the marshmallow) with more powdered sugar, and cut into around 22 equal sized pieces with a sharp knife.

 

11) Melt your chocolate by placing it in a metal bowl, and placing this over a saucepan of boiling water. Or you can melt your chocolate by heating the chocolate in a microwaveable bowl for just 30 seconds a time on a high setting (make sure you stir the chocolate every 30 seconds).

 

 

If your melted chocolate feels too thick and viscous to coat your marshmallow pieces, use a small balloon whisk to whisk in some canola oil, about 1 teaspoon a time, until you are happy with the consistency.

 

12) Using a toothpick, pick up each marshmallow piece in turn and drop into the chocolate mixture, using the toothpick to turn the marshmallow piece so it is evenly coated on all sides.

 

13) Leave to set for about an hour. If it’s particularly warm where you are, place your marshmallow pieces in the fridge to set.

 

14) You can store your marshmallows in a sealable container for a number of weeks. We recommended storing the container in the fridge to stop the chocolate from melting.

HQR said: Finally - I've Found A Paring Knife That Feels Right And Works As It Should!

For the last eight years or so, I have been trying to find a good replacement paring knife for an antique one that accidentally got thrown away with potato peelings. I've tried a ton of different ones, from dollar store brands all the way to expensive name brand knives. None has worked well for me - either because they don't cut as they're supposed to, or because they just don't feel right in my hand. But this one is perfect!!! It fits in my hand naturally and slips right through foods as I'm peeling and slicing them. It looks beautiful and I love the fact that it has a lifetime warranty in case anything does go wrong. I highly recommend it!

Jessica H said: Best spoon set

Having a dishwasher safe spoon set gives me the freedom to use it anyway I choose and not worry about clean up. I used the vented one for getting my vegetables and it made serving for picky eaters who don't want their food touching,, especially the juice for another food. Effortlessly I drained the vegetables. Thanks for making my life easier and the spoon rest helped to make cooking sanitary. Any cook knows cooking can get messy and you seem to run out of counter space quickly but having the clean surface to quickly put the spoon down.

Sara Hnasko said: Heavy

I haven't had an opportunity to use these yet but I am looking forward to trying them out soon. I can say that they are somewhat heavy and not thin and they are made very well. Just from holding them in my hands and looking at them, I can honestly say that this product is better made then the others
