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!

Yes, this is a picture of spoons, not cups, but the actual goodness you see on the spoon was made in a cup.

Okay not an actual cup, but mini muffin liners which look a bit like cups… Totally won you over then with my debating skills didn’t I?

If I didn’t consider these points:

They take 3 minutes to make, they’re sweet and gooey

and you can eat them with small spoons and feel like a giant. How awesome is that?

Super awesome if you ask me.

They’re perfect for parties: everyone makes their own flavour combos, put them all on a tray, broil them in the oven for a minute or two, and they’re done!

Sweet, marshmallowy success.

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

    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 :/
