• 200 grams (7.05 ounces) applesauce
  • 1 egg white (1 large)
  • 30 grams (1.05 ounces) sugar (#1)
  • 150 grams (5.30 ounces) espresso
  • 30 grams (1.05 ounces) Baileys liquor
  • 1 teaspoon coffee extract or 1 teaspoon instant coffee (1 teaspoon)
  • 8 grams (0.28 ounces) agar
  • 400 grams (14.10 ounces) sugar (#2)


  • Oven

    Use a reliable oven to bake the apples. Preheating it ensures even cooking.

  • Blender

    A powerful blender helps achieve a smooth and thick applesauce puree.

  • Sieve

    Rubbing the puree through the sieve gives you that perfect smooth texture.

  • Mixing Bowl

    A clean and dry mixing bowl is essential for whipping the egg white to perfection.

  • Thermometer

    A candy thermometer is crucial for monitoring the syrup temperature.

  • Pastry Bag

    Using a pastry bag helps in forming uniform marshmallow shapes effortlessly.

  • Parchment Paper

    Lining your tray with parchment paper ensures the marshmallows don't stick.


Step 1

Step 1: To make the applesauce, cut green apples in half and remove the core. Place them cut side down and bake in the oven until they become soft and mushy. Tip: Choose tart apples for a more flavorful marshmallow. Remove the peel, puree the pulp with a blender, and then pass it through a sieve to get a thick, sticky applesauce.

Step 2

Step 2: Pour agar into the espresso, then add Baileys liquor and coffee extract (or instant coffee). Place the mixture over heat until it begins to simmer. Tip: Stir continuously to ensure the agar dissolves completely.

Step 3

Step 3: In a mixer bowl, combine the egg white with sugar (#1) and the prepared applesauce (make sure it is cold while the egg white is at room temperature). Start whipping at high speed. Tip: Make sure your mixing bowl and whisk are clean and free of grease for optimal whipping.

Step 4

Step 4: When the syrup mixture begins to boil, gradually pour in sugar (#2) and mix well. When the syrup reaches 116°C-118°C (240°F-244°F), pour it in a thin stream along the side of the mixer bowl while constantly whipping the egg white mixture. Tip: Pour the syrup slowly to prevent the mixture from losing volume.

Step 5

Step 5: Once all the syrup is added, continue to whip for just a couple of minutes. Transfer the marshmallow mixture to a pastry bag and pipe the marshmallows onto parchment paper. Tip: Work quickly as the mixture starts to set fast.

Step 6

Step 6: Let the marshmallows sit for 4 to 5 hours to set, but for the best consistency and dryness, leave them overnight. Tip: Keep marshmallows in an airtight container to keep them fresh. Bon Appetit!
