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!
you will need:
–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
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

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!

Wow – what a fun idea! These sound amazing, with so many different combinations!
Thank you! I know, once I start thinking of all the possible combos, I can’t stop!
These look so delish and your photography is awesome! can’t believe you are only 16 – v.impressive!
hah, thanks 🙂
Can you make them with big cupcake liners mmmmmm
yeah, sure! that will maximise deliciousness!
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 :/
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
