Lucky chocolates in Saugerties, NY specializes in handmade, luxurious, small batch chocolates made from organic and fair trade chocolate. You can also find chocolate dipped treats of all sorts. One of our summer favorites are their highbrow version of simple marshmallows! We visited with Rae to see just how they’re made.
Before we got there Rae had already scaled out the ingredients—including organic sugars, honey, glucose, invert sugar, and gelatin—and cooked them down to a liquid form. She then poured it into her mixer and beat air into it to make it light, fluffy and gooey!
When almost ready she pours in special natural flavors like raspberry or caramel.
When perfectly melted marshmallowey, Rae pours the mixture into an oiled frame on a silpat. It sits and ages overnight until it’s ready to cut.
The Lucky folks dust the slab with a bit of confectioners sugar and cornstarch so that it’s workable and not too sticky. The whole thing is transferred to a cutting board, dusted again, then cut into the traditional marshmallow size pieces.
You can buy Lucky marshmallows naked or coated in dark or milk chocolate. This summer treat your family and friends to s’mores that are to-die-for—start with Lucky’s marshmallows and chocolates!
