Rose Water Marshmallows Dusted With Chocolate

My aim is to make sugar free marshmallows as perfectly light and fluffy as these rose water marshmallows are. I have dusted them with drinking chocolate but you could go the traditional route of using cornflour. Or even add some flavour to icing sugar.

At the beginning of December 2014 I trawled the Mall looking for grey or black sandals. Mine had given up the ghost and I could not exactly go barefoot at work for the rest of the month. While trying on a huge variety of shoes I wore out the brown ones I was wearing. Which meant having to find a pair of those as well. I was not in a huge rush for those as I do have a pair of brown FitFlops I can wear as long as I am not walking too far. At the same place that I found a pair of black and pink sandals was a pair of brown ones. They were not the prettiest I have ever seen, but they were comfortable. Well, for at least the couple of months they lasted.

I had no choice but to take them with us to Italy and by the end of the trip I could not wear them much longer. I had wanted to buy a pair of neutral coloured sandals for our trip to necessitate only packing one pair. This is all in aid to save space. However, I could not find anything suitable leading up to our departure. I managed to find a pair of purple sandals, and a pair of chocolate brown ones on our return. At the same time, everything was about chocolate for me. I made spiced choc mint ice cream, chocolate horlicks chews and these rose water marshmallows dusted in chocolate.
