• 70 grams (2.5 ounces) egg whites
  • 70 grams (2.5 ounces) sugar
  • A pinch of citric acid


  • 80 grams (2.8 ounces) water
  • 9 grams (0.32 ounces) agar
  • 200 grams (7 ounces) strawberry puree
  • 250 grams (8.8 ounces) sugar
  • 50 grams (1.8 ounces) glucose syrup


  • Stand Mixer

    Essential for whipping the meringue to the perfect "bird's beak" stage. If using a hand mixer, remember to double the components for best results.

  • Medium Saucepan

    Used to cook the syrup. Stir constantly to avoid burning.

  • Kitchen Thermometer

    Ensures your syrup reaches the precise temperature of 215°F (102°C).

  • Piping Bag with Nozzle

    For piping out the marshmallow mixture into the desired shape.


Step 1

Step 1: If you are using a stand mixer, follow the recipe as is. For hand mixers, double all the ingredient quantities for better results. Whip the meringue until it reaches the 'bird's beak' stage. This is when the meringue forms a peak that slightly bends over like a bird's beak.

Step 2

Step 2: For the syrup, combine the water, agar, and strawberry puree in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to just before it starts to boil. Stir frequently to avoid the agar sticking to the bottom.

Step 3

Step 3: Once the mixture reaches the first bubbles, add the sugar and stir continuously. Cook until the temperature reaches 215°F (102°C), which should take about 4-5 minutes. Using a candy thermometer can help get precise results.

Step 4

Step 4: Carefully pour the hot syrup into the whipped meringue while mixing continuously. Whip the mixture until it becomes dense and stable. Be cautious while pouring hot syrup to avoid burns.

Step 5

Step 5: Transfer the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a nozzle. Pipe the marshmallows onto a lined baking sheet. You can use parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Step 6

Step 6: Allow the marshmallows to dry for 10-15 hours. Once dried, roll them in powdered sugar and store them in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Ensure they are completely dry before storing to avoid moisture buildup in the container.

  • Can I use hand mixer instead of a stand mixer?

    Yes, but remember to double all the ingredients to get the desired consistency.

  • How do I know when the syrup is ready?

    Use a kitchen thermometer to ensure the syrup reaches 215°F (102°C). Watch for bubbles to appear, but keep stirring constantly to avoid burning.

  • What nozzle should I use for piping the marshmallows?

    A round or star-shaped nozzle is ideal for creating beautiful marshmallow shapes. Experiment with different sizes for a fun variety.
