Traditional Newfoundland Marshmallow Squares
If you are from Newfoundland or Labourdor you may remember your mom making these or going to the corner store and buying one. They also had graham crackers on them or a biscuit at the bottom of the marshmallow.
The steps are not to bad, but you got to have a little time on your hands to make them.
After the gelatine have jelled you pour it in a saucepan and add 3/4 cup of white sugar, let boil until all dissolved.
When you remove saucepan from stove top then add confectioners sugar ( powdered icing sugar ) to the hot liquid, then let cool to room temperature before adding the other ingredients.
Blending the gelatine with a high speed blender until it starts to form peeks, after remove blender and add the gelatine to a glass pan with coconut at the bottom.
Put in the fridge for 6 to 8 hours until sat or overnight, this tray makes about 12 marshmallow squares and if you like you can top with any type of topping, like chocolate chips, toasted coconut or graham crackers.
