  1. This homemade version of traditional Polish confectionery is super light, creamy and made with fresh ingredients.

    Taste is creamy/sweet but not super sweet like a marshmallow with a hint of acidity in the background and chocolate. It is not chewy like like marshmallow it melts in the mouth, then you get crunchy chocolate if tempered correctly.

    **Ingredients:**

    * 6 egg whites (use pasteurized eggs)
    * 170g (6oz)of sugar
    * 70ml (5tbsp) of double cream
    * 2tbsp of lemon juice
    * 1tsp vanilla extract
    * 16g (0.56oz) of gelatine leaves
    * blue food colouring (optional)
    * 150g (5.3oz) dark cooking chocolate bar

    **Instructions:**

    **1.** Place gelatine in a bowl of cold water to soak for **5 minutes**.

    **2.** In a small pan heat the cream and whisk in the lemon juice and vanilla then add gelatine and colouring mixing until dissolved, take off the heat.

    **3.** In the mixer, beat the egg whites on the medium speed setting, increasing to high once the soft foam is formed.

    **4.** Beat until stiff peaks are achieved then add sugar, spoon by spoon.

    **5.** When all the sugar is incorporated turn speed down a little and slowly pour in the cream mixture. (At this point the foam will lose around 30% of its volume but that is fine).

    **6.** Place the foam in a dish layered with plastic wrap to set for a **minimum of 8h** (gelatine reaches the maximum strength after 24h)

    **7.** Once set, remove from the form by lifting plastic film and cut to the desired shape.

    **8.** Melt 100g of dark chocolate over a bain-marie. Once melted take off the heat and whisk in remaining 50g of chocolate until incorporated.

    **9.** Dip foam squares into the melted chocolate and place on a drying rack to set.

    **10.** Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

  2. Oh goodness! These look so delightful. I am a huge fan of sweets, so guess what? I have to try these TODAY! I have a few guests coming over my place today, do this will be a great treat to the taste buds. Thanks for the recipe! ☺️

  3. there is a different recipe which i like way more.
    150 g of butter
    75 g of sweetened condensed milk
    230 g of sugar
    3 egg whites
    6 g of agar agar (in any health food store)
    vanilla extract to taste
    140 g of water

    Beat together butter and condensed milk until light and fluffy. Set aside.
    Agar, sugar and water boil until 110’C (the syrup will drop in tiny string off the spoon once it’s that hot)
    While the syrup is boiling, beat the eggs to stiff peaks, then add the boiling syrup in slow stream (don’t dump it all at once, but also don’t let it in too slowly), beat on high until it builds the volume and becomes glossy (around 2 minutes). Quickly add butter/milk mixture, mix well and pour into a container, then put it in the fridge. Takes 4-8 hours to stabilize, then can be cut.

    This is actually the original recipe of Ptasie Mleczko, it was done with agar originally in Soviet times. if you manage to get good condensed milk, good butter and good vanilla extract, the result is heavenly
