Guimauve à la framboise: Raspberry marshmallow, homemade gift for the one you love!!

Don't blame me for being very sweet, ^^, the Valentine's day is getting closer and closer, I believe that many people have the same feeling too. As I feel more confident about the Marshmallow, this time is my own adaptation, the sweet and fragrance marshmallow with raspberry.

Raspberry is one of many people favorite fruit for using in baking and candy making ^^, I think because the smell is very good, and the tangy taste can make many thing taste better, like when using in chocolate truffle. So I think it will be good in Marshmallow too.
 The basic for making Marshmallow is the Italian meringue, so when you want to add the flavor, it's easy ^^. By using the raspberry puree instead of the water and Voila! You got a lovely raspberry marshmallow. But if using just the puree, I found the raspberry fragrance is a bit low, so I add the extract too. 
I think the homemade marshmallow is more delicious than the store-bought one, and when you try it once, you will know that it's not hard to make at all. Actually you can cut into other shape, but for this time of the year I can't think of anything else but heart shape, haha. Start practice yourself with this recipe today and I think that when the Valentine's day comes you will be happy to crate this lovely sweet to give as a give for the one you love.


Note: If you want your marshmallow to have a cute pink color as mine you will have to use a bit of red food coloring.
