Kids, big and small, love Marshmallows.
This recipe is so easy, you are going to start making marshmallows all the time!
Like all of my Thermomix recipes, there is no nasty additives, just simple ingredients.
Normal marshmallow recipes are always rated as ‘hard’, ‘challenging’, ‘tricky’. You need special equipment (to make sure the sugar temperature is right for example), it involves beating egg whites and incorporating them into hot sugar. All that takes time and a lot of mess.
If, like me, you don’t have a lot of time, and quite enough mess to deal with already, then this recipe of Thermomix marshmallow is for you. And they make a fabulous present too!

Homemade sugarplum marshmallows with a Thermomix
Warning – they will need to set for 3 hours so you might not want to start this recipe too late in the evening (as I found out the first time I made them!!)
For the sugar plum
- 450g ripe plums
- 50g caster sugar
For the marshmallows
- 8 sheets gelatine
- 230g caster sugar
- 3 tablespoon cornflour
- 3 egg whites
First, make the sugar plum:
- Stone the plums
- Add them to the Thermomix bowl
- Turn on for 1 minute, speed 5
- Add the caster sugar
- Turn on for 30 seconds, speed 4
- Add the cooking basket
- Cook for 20 minutes, on Varoma setting, speed 2
- Remove the cooking basket
- Turn on for 30 seconds, speed 7
- Set aside
Give your Thermomix bowl a wash.
Now for the marshmallows
- Put 8 sheets of gelatine in a bowl of cold water
- Add 230g caster sugar in the bowl, turn on for 20 seconds, speed 10
- Extract 3 tablespoons of sugar in a bowl, add 3 tablespoons of cornflour and set aside
- Add the whisk in your Thermomix
- Add 3 egg whites
- Turn on for 8 minutes, temp 90C, speed 3.5
- In the meantime, pat dry your gelatine sheets (I use kitchen roll to extract as much moisture as possible)
- When there are about 3 minutes left, add the gelatine sheets one by one
- Add the sugarplum
- Turn on for 3 minutes, speed 4
- In the meantime, cover a rectangular dish (about 20 x 30cm) with cling film
- Pour the mixture in the dish and leave to set for a few hours (3 minimum)
- Sprinkle the icing sugar / cornflour mixture on top, turn the marshmallow out and remove the cling film
- With a big sharp knife, cut the marshmallows into squares
- Toss the marshmallows with more of the dusting mix until covered all over.
