Pink and White Marshmallows
205g white chocolate
Pink chocolate colouring
Strawberry chocolate flavouring Hundreds and thousands
Coloured icing daisies
Tiny plastic ballerinas
With a strong pair of scissors cut the plastic ballerinas in half at the waist.
You will only need the top half of them. Now push each ballerina into a
marshmallow and see that she is secure. Melt your white chocolate very, very
gently either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Remember that white
chocolate is much more sensitive to heat than milk chocolate and so it burns
more easily. The hotter it gets the thicker it gets, so if you see it getting
thick remove it from the heat immediately and stir it rapidly to cool it down.
Add a tiny (match head) amount of pink powder colouring to your chocolate as
well as four drops of strawberry flavouring oil. Mix through well till there are
no specks of pink colouring visible and you have a smooth, even pink chocolate.
Place a small amount of melted pink chocolate into the middle of each Marie
biscuit and place a ballerina marshmallow on top of it. When all your ballerina
marshmallows are stuck securely onto Marie biscuits you can work with them on
top of wax paper. Spoon your melted strawberry chocolate over the marshmallows
and allow it to run down and cover the entire marshmallow and rim of the Marie
biscuit. Then you can sprinkle hundreds and thousands over the marshmallow.
Stick tiny icing daisies all around the rim of the Marie biscuit. Your
Strawberry Chocolate Ballerinas are now complete. They make wonderful party
favours for little girl's birthday parties.
