This was great and yummy, but just a little too sweet. I would like to make this again, but would cut back to maybe 1/2 a cup of golden syrup. Make sure it's completely chilled in the fridge. I probably took mine out too early at first and the marshmallow stuck to the knife and made it difficult to cut. Another hour in the fridge and it cut beautifully!
