Can anyone tell me where I can get mini marshmallows for Nigella's chocolate mousse recipe? The big ones take too long to melt. [lazy emoticon]

just cut up the big ones with scissors. Takes no time.

I got some in Sainsbury's last week for DD's hot chocolate! must check out the Nigella recipe you mention!

if you cut them i pre warn you it becomes a very sticky mess, i would recomend just buying the smaller ones, i got very angry making marshmellow cup cakes, very very angry

Tried the cutting but such a sticky mess I lost the will to make the mousse. sad Tried Tesco here (which is supposed to be the biggest in UK) but they didn't have any. We have no Waitrose sad, although there is a rumour of one by Christmas. Will try Sainsbos. Thanks everyone.

The Nigella recipe is p*ss easy btw. I had a panic when it appeared like chocolate soup before going in the fridge but it set beautifully. I shaved some white choc on top and our friends were well impressed. [smug emoticon]

oh good i'm not the only one who ends up in a sticky mess that is good to know

wiggletastic Sat 06-Jun-09 20:44:29

Being in a sticky mess should be reserved for other occasions IMO wink

cookielove Sat 06-Jun-09 20:57:13

i'm to innocent to know what that could possibly mean??? wink

wiggletastic Sat 06-Jun-09 21:57:56

Hmmm... a likely story. hmm

cookielove Sat 06-Jun-09 22:09:52

M&S cookery section

Asda do them, as do Sainsbury's.
DD bought all her friends them for Christmas, along with a tub of hot chocolate mix!

Have tried M&S too. I will try Sainsburys and if no luck will go to Asda. There must be some mini marshmallows in Glasgow somewhere!

Tip for a non-sticky mess when cutting marshmallows; Stand your knife/scissors in hot water for a while before cutting. Dry utensil and cut. Will slide through with no stickiness. May have to restand utensil in water again after about 2/3 marshmallows but it does work smile

my mum got some in glasgow m&s last week

dinkystinky Sun 07-Jun-09 17:59:23

Lakeland direct do them too - you can order them online that way smile

wiggletastic Sun 07-Jun-09 19:36:50

pointy, could your mum get me some next time please as M&S are hiding them from me. sad. Thanks for the tip biscuits, I will revert to this method if the great mini-marshmallow hunt continues to be a great big failure.

pointydog Sun 07-Jun-09 19:39:24

grin my mum seems to spend half her week in m&s

wiggletastic Sun 07-Jun-09 19:52:25
