Equipment

  • heatproof bowl
  • piping-bag
  • hand-held mixer

Ingredients
  

For the sugar syrup

  • 200 g sugar (1 cup)
  • 5 g agar agar powder (2 tsp)
  • 75 ml water (⅓ cup)

For the Marshmallow Fluff

  • 160 ml Aquafaba (⅔ cup)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 100 g sugar (½ cup)
  • tsp guar gum

Coating

  • 300 g dark chocolate, chopped

Instructions
 

  • Have a piping bag with a suitable tip ready. Assemble your cookies.
  • For the topping combine agar agar, water, and 200 g sugar in a pot and place on the stove, but don't heat it yet.
  • In a large bowl, whisk aquafaba until foamy, for about one minute.
  • Add lemon juice.
  • Then slowly add 100 g sugar to the mixture.
  • Beat the mixture for about 10 minutes until very stiff peaks will form.
  • Add guar gum and beat for another minute.
  • Add food colouring, if using, and mix until incorporated. (I used 8 g of spirulina powder.)
  • Once the mixture is very stiff, transfer to a heat-proof bowl.
  • Now bring the agar mixture to a boil and cook for three minutes. Remove from heat and stir briefly, so the sticky bits from the bottom get dissolved.
  • Now you need to work quickly: Have the heatprof bowl with the agar mixture and your handheld mixer ready.
  • Start whisking the aquafaba mixture again and slowly pour in the hot sugar syrup.
  • Once the sugar syrup is incorporated, transfer the mixture to a piping bag with your favourite tip and pipe on top of the cookies.
  • Place in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes.
  • Melt 300 g of chocoolate in a double boiler.
  • Transfer to a mug and dip the marshmallows into the chocolate.
  • You can also use a spoon to cover the marshmallows: Place the marshmallows over the mug and drizzle the chocolate all over.
  • Place on a cookie rack and let the excess chocolate drain from the marshmallows.
  • Transfer to the fridge and let set completely.
