The plate on the right has the finished marshmallows from the second batch. They are dusted in powdered sugar to keep them from sticking together. They are actually purple, as can be seen on the exposed half-marshmallow. These are awesome in hot chocolate or s'mores.
The plate on the left has the Frankensteinian remnants, and a few salvaged pieces from the first batch, dipped in chocolate.
So here's my (revised) recipe for Cherry Marshmallows.
Heavy-bottomed 2-qt saucepan
Medium mixing bowl (I prefer on with straight sides)
1 t. cherry extract (or more for a stronger flavor)
Mix gelatin and 1/2 c cherry juice in microwave safe bowl and set aside.
Microwave gelatin on high for 20 seconds. Stir to fully liquefy.
Beat until very thick and glossy, 8 to 10 minutes.
