Homemade marshmallows

In South Africa one of our favourite Easter treats were chocolate covered marshmallow eggs. So for this Easter we decided to try and recreate them. Gelatin, sugar, and egg white went into a bowl and we mixed and mixed and mixed                    
and then added the pink food colouring  
put them on a cornflour dusted tray. Ok so not very egg like in shape
we made lots!
Once they were set, we covered them in cornflour
Then dipped them in chocolate            
B decorated them to look more fun for Easter
We also made them in green, and orange, and gave them away as Easter gifts :)  I realise that it's weird that I'm talking about Easter in June but I did warn you that I was behind in my posting :)     
Very Yummy!
