My friends love when I make these egg free marshmallows because they adore them. They're great with hot chocolate. These take a while to make but they're well worth the effort! The reason they're snowy white and not kind of yellow is because there is no golden syrup. And no raw egg whites!
To clean your mixing bowl, fill it with boiling water and leave to sit for 30 minutes and wipe it clean. For the saucepan where the syrup was, do the same thing or fill it with cold water and bring it up to the boil on the hob.
If you want, you could substitute the vanilla with 1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract and add some green food colouring for a Christmassy effect.
