This fun marshmallow Poop Peeps recipe is shaped just like the poop emoji. This easy marshmallow recipe is crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. For this easy marshmallow recipe, a simple recipe for marshmallows is used and then coated in dyed sugar crystals. This easy marshmallow recipe is not as difficult to make as you might think, all you need is sugar, gelatin, and food dye. The first thing you want to try and replicate for this easy marshmallow recipe is the poop emoji using brown sugar. So the sugar is not brown sugar, but rather brown dyed sugar. For this easy marshmallow recipe granulated, white sugar that has been refined and then dyed is used. The difference between white sugar and brown sugar is that brown sugar is granulated sugar that has molasses added in.
This addition gives brown sugar a nice caramel, nutty flavor but doesn't work for this easy marshmallow recipe as it also leads to the sugar forming moist clumps. These clumps can also dry out leaving hard rocks. So that is why white sugar is needed for this easy marshmallow recipe so that you can sprinkle the white sugar onto the easy marshmallow recipe, so that is why the white sugar must be dyed to brown. To do this, you will need some brown food dye. The creator of this easy marshmallow recipe used the liquid food dye from Lorann Oils. To dye the white sugar simply pour about one cup of sugar into a Ziploc bag and then add the brown dye in drops. The problem is that you are going to need a lot of drops to get the deep brown color of poop. For this easy marshmallow recipe, it took 125 drops to achieve the desired color. After you’ve added the brown dye, you will have a large dark clump in the white sugar. You will want to completely seal the baggie and massage it until the brown dye spreads throughout. This process should only take a couple of minutes. Just make sure that you break up the clumps, so the brown dye spreads out evenly.
It would be a lot easier if you could use brown sugar for this marshmallow recipe easy, but that would change the way the coating looks, so you want to avoid brown sugar. Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product that has a distinctive brown color because of the presence of molasses. Brown sugar is often made by adding sugarcane molasses to white sugar crystals that are completely refined, to reduce manufacturing costs. The molasses that are typically used for food is obtained from sugar cane, because the flavor is more preferred than that of beet sugar molasses, although in some locations, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium, sugar beet molasses is used. Natural brown sugar, whole cane sugar or raw sugar are sugars that retain a small to a large amount of their molasses from the mother liquor. Easy marshmallow recipe ideas have been around since the times of ancient Egypt. The stem of the marshmallow plant can be peeled back to reveal a soft and spongy pith; that can be boiled into a sugary syrup and then dried to produce a soft, chewy marshmallow treat.
