Pastry Chef Attempts To Make Gourmet Twizzlers | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Sep 18, 2018
  • Twizzlers come in just about every flavor under the sun, but Claire only has one goal in mind: make a gourmet version of everyone's favorite. That's right -- the original, cherry-ish flavored Twizzler.

    This video made me think of my grandmother who passed away back in 2016. She was a diabetic and she loved Twizzlers so she always had them in her purse.

    So do they know that Red Vines are the licorice that's best for straws and that Twizzlers aren't good for that.

    I'm no chef but I feel you can achieve the desired results by replacing the flour you use with Cornflour. It gives you the blandness and the hard chewy texture, if you keep it on the heat for a longer time and then shaping it candy style, except it'll be chewy and will hold shape for sure.

    I accidentally made twisler texture once, I made a regular sugar water corn syrup candy mix, and also separately boiled some berries for a while and added some gelatin to that, and then incorporated the candy mix, the weird mixture of the different things (gelatin, pectin, melted sugar) was the secret.

    I think if they would have dehydrated them after cutting the ends with the scraper, the texture might have improved.

    You have to bite the ends off (and eat them) and then use it as a straw.

    I really enjoy this series because she doesn't give up. She keeps trying to figure it out and get there. Her (and maybe Brad) should have a series where they take viewer questions/scenarios (maybe videos from the viewers?) called "where did I go wrong?". I love to cook, but there are so many times where I dont get the desired result (or something awful happens).
