Method

White chocolate and passionfruit marshmallow biscuits
  • 1
    Make passionfruit marshmallow. Grease two 12-hole (1½-tablespoon/30ml) shallow round-based patty pans. Stir passionfruit, sugar and the hot water in small saucepan, over low heat, until sugar dissolves. Combine gelatine and the cold water in small jug. Pour gelatine mixture into hot sugar syrup; cook, stirring, until gelatine dissolves. Pour mixture into small heatproof bowl; cool to room temperature. Beat mixture and a little food colouring with electric mixer, on high speed, about 8 minutes or until mixture is thick and holds its shape. Working quickly, spoon the mixture into pan holes; smooth surfaces. Stand at room temperature about 1 hour or until firm. Slide marshmallows out of pan holes.
