Marshmallow Easter Eggs πŸ˜‰

Easter is around the corner and what a great idea to make these lovely marshmallow for Easter and also great to make for your grandchildren. They are easy to make and you can also have your grand children to help and have fun!!
                Absolutely Yummy!
My granddaughter Tia and my daughter - law  Kadya and my son Santo  came over to visit for  Easter Sunday, when I toke out the marshmallows out of the fridge,  my 11 year old granddaughter asked me  " are this all for me" and I said yes but for dad and Kadya too.

Adapted from Bouchon Bakery                                     ( makes: about 48 Easter eggs)
2 packet (2 Tablespoons.) gelatin powder
1/2 cup cold water

1/2 cup + 4 Tbsp. egg whites (about 4 large eggs)                                                        
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or vanilla paste

2 cups + 4 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup water
4 tablespoons light corn syrup
1lemon zest                                                                                                          
1 to 2 drops of yellow food gel/ options 
1/2 inch round tip with a large plastic bag 
Coarse white decorating sugar
24 plastic hollow eggs
Prepare the plastic eggs by spraying the insides with cooking spray.

Pour gelatin into a small metal bowl over 1/2 cup cold water. Allow to bloom for 5 minutes.

Place the metal bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water. Once the gelatin has melted, reduce the heat to keep it warm.

Place the egg whites in your stand mixer bowl. Add the vanilla paste to the egg whites.

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, water and corn syrup over medium high heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

Meanwhile with your whisk attachment, whip the eggs at high speed until medium peaks form.

When the sugar mixture has reached 250 Fahrenheit, remove the saucepan from the stove. Slowly pour it into the mixer bowl. Pour in the melted gelatin.

Whisk the mixture until it is thick, glossy and lukewarm to the touch, on the bottom of the bowl, now add the lemon zest and whisk for a couple of minutes ,  have ready a 1/2 inch round tip to your pastry bag with the mixture.

Pipe the marshmallow into each half of the eggs, filling only to the top. Combine the halves and gently close and place into the  egg cartons to set overnight.
Once the eggs have set, roll them in colored decorating sugar.
