- 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
- 4 recipe follows marshmallows
- 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 2 envelopes (2 tablespoons) unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
- 2 egg whites
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- as needed powdered sugar
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the graham cracker crumbs in a shallow dish and set aside. Spear the marshmallows with the cocktail picks.
Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Dip the marshmallow sticks in the chocolate, one at a time, and let any excess drip off. Roll in the graham cracker crumbs and place on the prepared baking sheet. Serve immediately. Or if you’d like the chocolate to set, refrigerate about 1 hour before serving.
Line a baking sheet or dish with parchment paper. Stir the gelatin into 1/3 cup water.
Place the granulated sugar, 1/3 cup water and corn syrup in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring, and cook until the sugar dissolves and the temperature reaches 240 °F. Carefully pour the sugar mixture into the gelatin mixture, stirring constantly. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. With the mixer on medium-low speed, pour the sugar-gelatin mixture into the egg whites in a slow, steady stream. Continue whipping until stiff peaks form. Pour the mixture into 8-by-8-inch baking sheet or dish and refrigerate until stiffened, about 3 hours.
Turn the marshmallow out onto a surface sprinkled with powdered sugar; peel off the parchment. Cut into 4 cubes and insert a bamboo stick into each.
