Bird's milk is essentially sweet marshmallow coated in chocolate. The homemade version is even more delectable than store-bought ones. Plus, you can modify the recipe and create your unique flavored bird's milk.

For the Marshmallow:         

  • 6 raw egg whites - amounting to approximately 7 ounces
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 drops of cream flavoring
  • 2 tablespoons of gelatin
  • 1/2 cup of boiling water

For the Chocolate Coating:


  • 4 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 7 tablespoons of 30% fat cream
  • A flat tablespoon of gelatin
  • Approximately 1.7 fl oz of boiling water

Here are the steps:


  • Begin by preparing the coating
  • Combine cream, butter, cocoa, and sugar in a pot
  • Heat the mixture using medium power, stirring continuously
  • Place gelatin in a small bowl and add a bit of boiling water
  • Stir the mixture until the gelatin is completely dissolved
  • Combine the hot gelatin with the pot mixture and stir
  • Set the coating aside and begin the marshmallow preparation
  • Stir two tablespoons of gelatin into boiling water until completely dissolved, then set aside to cool
  • Separate the egg whites from the yolks (the yolks will not be used)
  • Gradually beat the egg whites using a mixer
  • Slowly incorporate sugar (one tablespoon each round)
  • Once you've beaten the whites, add the lemon juice and cream flavoring
  • Combine everything and add the cooled gelatin
  • Mix the mass briefly at minimal rotations
  • Line a rectangular baking tray with baking paper
  • Transfer the mixture onto the tray
  • Spread the chocolate coating over the marshmallow
  • Refrigerate the bird's milk until it is completely set
  • If you'd like more chocolate, add a bit to the bottom before adding the marshmallow mixture to the tray
