Chocolate Covered Beer Marshmallows
The only problem you’ll have when you make these beer marshmallows, is that you won’t be able to stop eating them.

- 1 cup cold, flat beer
- 3 1/2 envelopes unflavoured gelatin
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 large egg whites
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups dark chocolate morsels
- 2 cups milk chocolate morsels
- powdered sugar
- Oil a 9 x 13in. baking pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Set aside.
- In the bowl of your electric mixer, pour 1/2 cup cold beer and 3 1/2 packs of gelatin.
- In a medium pot combine sugar, remaining beer, syrup and salt. Heat over low heat and whisk until sugar is dissolved, about 3-5 minutes.
- Turn heat up to medium and let sugar come to a boil. It will become bubbly so keep yours eye on it so it does not overflow. Let it boil for 8-12 minutes, until it reaches 240 degrees F. The mixture will appear to be a lightish brown color depending on the beer you use – don’t worry, the marshmallows will still be white.
- Once mixture is at 240 degrees F, turn off heat and gently pour it in the mixer over the gelatin with the mixer on low speed. Once all of the sugar has been added, turn the mixer to high and beat for 6-8 minutes. It should grow in size and be white and fluffy.
- In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Once formed, add egg whites and vanilla extract to the sugar/gelatin mixture and beat until just combined.
- Pour marshmallow mix into the 9 x 13 pan. It will be incredibly sticky, so try to get as much into the pan as you are able to. Spray a spatula with non-stick spray and smooth the top of your marshmallow mixture. Dust powdered sugar on top and let sit to firm up for 3-5 hours.
- Once firm, turn the pan upside down to release your marshmallow rectangle. Cut into pieces.
- Melt milk and dark chocolate separately in bowls. Combine chocolate. Crush pretzels.
- Dip marshmallow pieces in the melted chocolate and sprinkle with pretzel crumbs. Let sit at room temperature until chocolate hardens.
Try switching out the pretzels for salted caramel drizzle. Try cinnamon hearts in February or candy canes in December. But using different styles of beer, you can slightly change the taste of your marshmallows. Marshmallows can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Blackened Beer-Brined Chicken Breasts
You can grill something (perhaps accidentally) until it’s so blackened and beyond edible-looking that you think it won’t be fit for anyone but the dog. But when you tentatively slice off a piece, it turns out to be absolutely perfect. This recipe for beer-brined chicken is a case in point.
