"The gentleman who gave me this recipe told me hed been making candy for over 45 years and this was the Billion Dollar Bar as far as he was concerned. Hed made divinity, all sorts of fudge, tempered chocolate, spun sugar, and pulled taffy, but this is his favorite."
Fancy flump marshmallow ropes from Meringue Girls: Everything Sweet are super fun to make. Marshmallows are made exactly the same way as an Italian meringue - adding hot sugar syrup to stiff egg whites - but with the addition of gelatine to make them set. We suggest making this with friends, as the marshmallow mixture sets quite quickly and you need a few hands on deck to pipe the ropes before it does. Good messy fun.
