Raspberry Marshmallow | Sweet Sensations |

Raspberry Marshmallow

Raspberry Marshmallow what is not to love. Sweet, tart and very easy to make. Marinating the Raspberries in Cointreau really gives this really simple dessert an edge of sophistication for any dinner party.

We used some heart shaped moulds which made the presentation of Raspberry Marshmallow fun and romantic. Serve with Greek Yoghurt and Honey | The Gods Ambrosia | if you want to cut some of the sweetness.

In a bowl marinated the raspberries in the Cointreau for at least 30 minutes

Set the bowl over a double boiler and allow the gelatine to melt. Remove from the heat.


Add the castor sugar and boiling water. Attach the bowl to the mixer, using the whisk attachment. Beat on high speed for 8–10 minutes until the mixture is thick and shiny. Add the rosewater and stir through. Add food colouring, a few drops at a time, until your desired hue is reached.
