- 1/3 + 1/4 cup of cold water
- 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 tbsp light corn syrup
- Candy thermometer
- 1 1/2 tsps of vanilla extract
- Piping bags
- 1/2″ round piping tip
- Large round piping tip
Marshmallow Coating Powder
- 1/4 cup of cornstarch
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- 12 chocolate graham crackers
- 12 squares of chocolate
- Porg template
- 1/4 cup of orange candy melts
- Vegetable oil (optional)
- Orange and grey/silver sanding sugar
- Small zip-top bags
- 24 black jumbo nonpareils
- Black icing fitted with a small, round piping tip
- Step 1: Download, print and cut out porg template.
- Step 2: Melt the orange candy melts by heating in the microwave in 30 second intervals at 50% power until smooth, stirring between each set. You can add a teaspoon of vegetable oil if they are lumpy once completely melted.
- Step 3: Place the porg template under a piece of wax paper, and use a toothpick to draw the feet with the orange melts. Set aside to harden.
- Step 4: Prep your sanding sugars by placing a little of the orange, and a little of the grey sugars into separate small zip-top bags. Cut a tiny corner off of each and set aside.
- Step 5: Prep 2 piping bags by fitting bags by fitting one with a large round tip, and the other with a 1/2″ round tip. Lay a piece of wax paper over a baking sheet. Combine the marshmallow coating ingredients in a bowl, and lightly sift the powder over the wax paper. Set aside.
- Step 6: Pout 1/3 cup of cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer, and stir in the gelatin. Allow the gelatin to softened while you make the syrup.
- Step 7: In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, 1/4 cup of water, light corn syrup and salt. Stir, and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Then turn the heat up to high, and continue to cook (without stirring) until the syrup reaches 240F on a candy thermometer.
- Step 8: With the mixer on low, slowly pour the syrup into the softened gelatin. Gradually increase the speed to high, and whip until soft peaks form and hold their shape, about 8-10 minutes. Add the vanilla extract, and whip just until it is incorporated.
- Step 9: Transfer the marshmallow to the 2 prepared piping bags. You can place the porg template underneath the wax paper on your baking sheet that you’ve prepared with coating powder, as a guide.
- Step 10: Using the bag with 1/2″ tip, pipe a large circle the body, and then a smaller one on top of the head. Use the other piping bag fitted with the smaller round top to make the wings. If you are left with any lumps or peaks on the marshmallow, you can lightly wet a clean finger and smooth out the marshmallow. You want to work quickly before the marshmallow begins to set, so only pipe 2 at a time, and then add the decorations.
- Step 11: To decorate, start with the orange sugar, and carefully pour in a pattern that replicated the look of the porgs. Then pour the grey sugar over the wings, edges of the body, and top of the head of each porg.
- Step 12: Add a nonpareil to each side of the face for the eyes, placing them just over the orange sugar, and then place 2 of the candy melt feet at the bottom. Allow the marshmallows to set, uncovered, for at least 7 hours, or overnight before adding the decorating icing.
- Step 14: Use decorating icing to pipe the mouths and nostrils onto the porgs. Carefully unpeel the marshmallows from your baking sheet. You can lightly coat any sticky areas with the marshmallow coating mixture.
- Step 15: When you are ready to turn them into s’mores, break your graham crackers in half. Place 1 half on a plate and top it with a porg. Heat in the microwave for 5-7 seconds, then add the chocolate square and the other half of your graham cracker.
