In a large bowl combine 2 envelopes gelatin and 1/4 cup water and let stand. Boil 1 cup water and add to gelatin. Mix well and add 2 cups sugar, a pinch of salt, 1/2 tsp vanilla and if you wish, food coloring.
Beat with mixer until thick and soft peaks form. If you use a mixer like mine, it will take you about 15 minutes, which seems like an eternity - one of these days I'll have one of these.
Martha, can you hear me? I need a fairy godmother to hook me up with kitchen tool awesomeness!!
Spoon mixture into flour molds and let the marshmallow set.It's as easy as that.
When set, turn eggs in flour to coat all sides. Remove and brush off excess flour.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Dip eggs and cover all sides. Place on wax paper to cool and set.
I was out of wax paper so I used tin foil. See Martha, I told you I need you!
Enjoy your wonderfully delicious, imperfect, one of a kind, soft marshmallow eggs that will make your tastebuds dance.
Thanks again Mona for teaching me how to make these!!
