Chocolate fondue with homemade marshmallows


  • 125 gram FunCakes Icing Sugar
  • 400 gram caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup (or sugar cane syrup)
  • 300 ml water
  • 4 tablespoons FunCakes gelatin (beef)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Square dish (24 cm)
  • Sugar thermometer
  • 200 grams FunCakes melts chocolate (dark, milk or white)

Sprinkle the square dish generously with icing sugar. Put the brown sugar, golden syrup and 175 ml water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat to 120°C-130°C (use the sugar thermometer) or until a small amount of syrup that you drip in cold water, is formed into a ball.

While the syrup is heated, put the remaining water in a metal bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Keep warm until the syrup heats up. Remove the syrup from the heat and stir the gelatin with a whisk into the hot syrup and then set it aside.

Beat the egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form. Continue beating as you slowly add the syrup to the egg whites, until the whites are very stiff. Stir in the vanilla. Spread evenly in the dish and let it stand before carving, at least for 8 hours, or overnight.

Pour the desired amount of melts in a plastic (microwave proof) or glass bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and melt the melts at maximum power (± 800 Watts).

Remove the chocolate from the microwave and stir every 15 to 20 seconds it carefully so that the temperature spreads evenly. Keep repeating this until the chocolate is almost completely melted; small pieces of chocolate may still be visible.

Stop heat and stir the chocolate well be resolved until all pieces of chocolate and obtained a smooth chocolate mass. The chocolate is now ready for use. Put it in a chocolate fondue pan and dip your homemade marshmallows in the chocolate … and enjoy!
