Two-tone Vanilla Strawberry Mini Marshmallows

Hello everyone!

I’m back! YAY! I’m very happy to be! I miss baking, I miss food photography and I miss sharing with you! I hope I’ll be posting more regularly! Great news in the cooking department, I was finally able to make caramel. Unfortunately I have no proof because I didn’t have time to take pictures (soon I’m supposed to get an intelligent cell phone so I’ll post that kind of pics on Instagram!). Let’s just say I was very happy, and as excited as I was I decided to try another batch the day after and burned it! Ahahah! I didn’t master caramel yet, but there is hope for me! You can expect a caramel dessert soon!

Today I have for you these cute two-tone marshmallows. Vanilla and strawberry! Dipped in chocolate they can be Neapolitan marshmallows! Use them in hot chocolate, give them as a gift or eat them just like that!

Two-tone Vanilla Strawberry Mini Marshmallows
Recipe from Daring Bakers July 2009


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon powdered gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, seeded
  • 2 drops strawberry extract
  • Pink food coloring
  • Powdered sugar to sprinkle


  1. Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and let bloom. Reserve.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, corn syrup, and sugar. Stir only when you combine the ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil until the temperature on a candy thermometer reach 235 degrees.
  4. Remove the syrup from heat. Add gelatin and mix.
  5. Whip the whites until soft peaks form.
  6. While beating, gradually pour syrup into the whites. Whip until stiff.
  7. Separate the marshmallows in two bowls. In the first, add the vanilla seeds and mix until incorporated.
  8. In the second bowl, add the strawberry extract and the pink food coloring. Whip until incorporated.
  9. Transfer to two separate pastry bags.
  10. Place both pastry bags in another pastry bag fit with the tip of your choice. Press until both colors are evenly coming out.
  11. On a surface dusted with a lot of powdered sugar, pipe tiny kisses of marshmallows. Sprinkle with more powdered sugar.
