3 minute Marshmallow Cups


Say it’s actually freezing cold outside, and you want a warm snack. It needs to be quick and dessert like. You don’t own a microwave so all those 2 minute mug cake recipes are a no. What can you do?

Turn on your oven and get out that bag of marshmallows you never use, we’re not making plain old s’mores, we’re making marshmallow cups!

3 minute Marshmallow Cups

you will need:

Large marshmallows
Crunchy things: graham cracker bits, crushed pretzels, rice krispies, crushed cornflakes, cookie pieces, pecans or other nuts, ice cream cone pieces
Melty things: nutella, peanut butter, chocolate, frosting, other nut butters
Other? : toasted desiccated coconut, cinnamon, m & m’s, crumbled cake, chopped snickers bar/ mars bar
Mini muffin/ petit four paper liners
Cookie tray

Turn on the grill/broiler in your oven at the highest temperature, put a rack in the middle of the oven.

Put a layer of something crunchy into the bottom of each mini muffin liner.

Top this layer with a small amount of something melty.

(Put in anything else you want now)

Cut a large marshmallow in half with a pair of scissors. Push a marshmallow half sticky-side down, into a filled mini muffin liner. Repeat until all the liners have a marshmallow, then put the liners on a cookie tray.

Put them in the oven, and grill/broil them until the marshmallow is golden brown on top (between 1 and 1 1/2 minutes).

Remove the tray from the oven carefully and eat straight away

  1. I love what you’ve done here with this post, it looks really beautiful! I found you via foodgawker & I just wanted to say that I’m really impressed with the quality of your blog. I’m even more impressed knowing that you are so young! This is exciting & I’m sure you’ll go on to do even cooler stuff!


  2. These look so delish and your photography is awesome! can’t believe you are only 16 – v.impressive!

  3. Is there anyway this recipe could be changed so that you CAN microwave it? It looks delicious, but I can’t use a oven right now and these sound like the perfect snack.

    • I think you probably can make it in the microwave, but I the marshmallow will just melt, not toast (which would still be delish!). I couldn’t say what power you’d need to use or length of time though, I’ve never really used microwaves :/

  4. Omg… I had a girls night, and we all wanted something sweet. I found this recipe. So i was like – why not? And me with the girls made them and we were soo happy. It’s the most wonderful thing that i’ve ate in my whole life!!! :)))) #delish
