- 2 tablespoon (28g) powdered gelatine
- 1/4 cup (60ml) water
- 1 cup (250ml) boiled water
- 2 cup (440g) caster sugar
- 1/4 cup (60ml) limoncello liqueur
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon lemon essence
- 2 teaspoon lemon juice
- yellow food colouring
- 1 1/2 cup (120g) desiccated coconut
- 1Sprinkle gelatine over water; stir to combine.
- 2In a medium saucepan, stir boiled water and sugar over heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil; stir in gelatine mixture and liqueur. Boil, uncovered, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
- 3Pour mixture into the medium bowl of an electric mixer; add extract, essence and juice. Beat on high speed until very thick and white. Tint marshmallow mixture yellow with colouring.
- 4Rinse a deep 20cm square cake pan with cold water; do not wipe dry. Pour marshmallow mixture into pan and refrigerate about 3 hours or until set.

Marshmallows are best eaten on the day they are made when they are at their softest.
