Recipe: Turkish Delight

I have been craving for the Turkish Delight like forever. While walking throughout KLCC with my cousin and suddenly I found one at Marks and Spencer! I am so happy and cannot wait to taste it. Ouuuh, it was so sweet, coated with chocolate and with the rose flavoring, I feel like in heaven already! Suddenly after eating the whole packet of Chocolate Turkish Delight, it occurs me whether the gelatine used for making the candy was HALAL or not! Erk, now I'm worried.

 I decided to find the recipe and make it myself. guess what, the ingredient are super easy and it was so easy to make..Wohhoo! This can be considered as lucky!
I made this!!

Marshmallow on the loose!

Yeay! My homemade marshmallow is nicely done...and I'm loving it so much....I got the recipe from Joy of Baking and after this no need to buy it from the market which is not guaranteed to be Halal. Instead of using light corn syrup (which is expensive) I just used the same amount of glucose syrup and it turn out perfectly great! The gelatin I used for the marshmallow is from Halalgel which is a fish base gelatin...Konfirm Halal! The making of this fluffy candy was easy and it only takes about 45 minutes to complete it.

Enjoy People!!

It was sticky and hard to cut it~
Looks so fluffy ain't it!
