Marshmallow – Easter Peeps !

Tilbake til oppskriften på norsk !

At Easter Peeps are sold by millions in the U.S.. I found the original Peeps so cute and fresh in color. So I just have try to make them my selves.
I will mention that I managed to make a few of those who say «beep», but the most of them look like elephants, fat sea lions and fantasy creatures. :)

Marsmallow! 27 Peeps

  • 15 oz (430 gr)  sugar
  • 2 teaspoons glucose
  • 3/4 cup (1.8 dl) water (I)
  • 2 tablespoons gelantine powder
  • 1/4 cup (0.6 dl) water (II)
  • 2 egg whites
  • taste-vanilla or other flavor

Colored sugar!

  • 28 oz (800 gr) sugar devided into 4
  • yellow, purple, pink and green gel colors

Zimmer the water (I),  sugar and glucose to reashe 250 F (125 C ) degrees.

Meanwhile mix water (II) and gelantine powder in a separate bowl.

Remove the sugar mixture from heat and stir in the gelantine. Meanwhile whip egg white to soft peakes.

Pour the hot sugar in  a thin streame into the egg whites, while the mixer is running on medium speed.

Whipp on high speed until the mixture expand  and becomes airy and glossy.

Turn the mixer off and raise the whips  and check: When the marshmallow flow slowly of from the whips it is to loose.  whipp for 30 sec more and check again.

Beat until mixture just stays still when the whipps are raised.
If you
should be unfortunate enough to whipp  the mixture too solid,  quickly spread it in a 8″ x 8″  (20 x 20 cm) pan, and let set for 5 hours before cuting into small squairs. Or you can cut out  shapes with a cookie cutter!

Place a sheet of  baking paper for each color on a table.

scoope the  marshmallow into a piping  bag and attach a big open tip, or cut a hole with a 1/2 inch opening. and pipe  seven Pepps bodies, and then go back and pipe the heads on top.
Repeat the same for all 4  sheets of baking paper.

Sprinkle the sugar on top  and let rest for 1.5 hours.

:) Those are not quite  chickens :)

Poure  most of the sugar back into separat plastic bags and drop in one  Peep . Shake the sugar/pepp   in the bag until the it is uniform in color and let them rest on the baking paper and setle for 5 hours before  packing in airtight  container.
