BOUCHON BAKERY: Chocolate Topped Marshmallow Strips not Marshmallow Eggs

Bouchon Bakery - Confections

Baking from the book, Bouchon Bakery, by Thomas Keller and Sebastien Rouxel; Marshmallow Eggs recipe located in the chapter, Confections.

Attempted to make Marshmallow Eggs. Well, they didn’t quite turn out.

When making marshmallows, you’ll need a candy thermometer.

I didn’t use gelatin sheets. I used KNOX Gelatine (in powder form) which I found at the supermarket. Since my egg shapes didn’t work out, I made a sheet of marshmallow. I cut the marshmallow sheet into strips. Then, spread melted chocolate on the marshmallow strips. Voila!

Chocolate Topped Marshmallow Strips!

What did I think of the marshmallow recipe?

It’s very good. I really liked the addition of chocolate.

My mom loved this. I will make it again very soon for her.
There is nothing better than homemade marshmallow.

Today is


It is a religious holiday where Christians celebrate Jesus Christ’s Resurrection.

holy week

Easter’s religious significance also has a commercial side.

Signs of a Commercial Easter are: Jelly beans, marshmallow chicks, Easter eggs, bunnies, baskets and candy. A fun time for children. Lest I forget, it’s fun for adults too.
