Toasted Marshmallow Day

Today is the international Toasted Marshmallow Day (notice I never miss the food days eh?) and in honour of such an esteemed day I’d like to present you guys with a recipe I found a few years back.

Hot Cocoa With Marshmallow Cakes

The ingrediants you’ll need are:

  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Handful of tiny marshmallows

How to make:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Mix the flour, salt, cocoa and baking powder together.
  • Mix the butter, sugar, vanilla and egg together, beating the paste is smooth.
  • Alternate adding the water and the flour mixture, beating the mixture as you go along.
  • Take several small marshmallows and place one inside each paper cake liner then pour the mixture on top of them.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes depending on the size of the cakes then leave to cool for 10 minutes.

Hope you guys have a wonderful day, and don’t forget to toast a marshmallow for yourself.

  1. Yummy! Going to try that sometime. :yes: I like the ones roll ed in coconut. :chef::awww: sorry to hear that darko.

  2. Handful of tiny marshmallows

    Tiny marshmallows? What about great big honking huge marshmallows? tiny marshmallows, indeed! :irked: ;)Darko,No marshmallows?Is it legal to send someone marshmallows in the mail? Seriously!

  3. Clean, I don`t know. I think if it is in original package there will be no problems but can`t be sure. Thanks anyway, one day when I am going to travel to Great Britain, or USA or Australia (or to all of these places ๐Ÿ˜€ ) I will buy them ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Darko,Groovy!(I couldn't figure out where to find out the info – I couldn't see someone at the counter in Australia Post knowing … ๐Ÿ˜† but I thought there might be a customs/quarantine issue with foodstuffs).Cois,What sort of animal is it made from? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Any edible beast is suitable for biltong. Springbok and ostrich are both popular. Although mutton and beef versions are cheaper.Darko, I'll give you the recipe for marshmallow. :up:.

  6. That was me! I sent the marshmallows ๐Ÿ˜€ . I know! When darko wins a competition I'll throw some marshmallows in there ๐Ÿ’ก

    Yes, it is! I've gotten marshmallows in the mail :happy:.

  8. Aadil,Hmm … springbok sounds interesting. Ostrich, I imagine, would taste like chicken … ;)Originally posted by qlue:

    Darko, I'll give you the recipe for marshmallow.

    :doh: Why didn't I think of that … ? ๐Ÿ™„

    :sing: Rosie's eating contraband … Rosie's eating contraband … :sing: ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Ostrich tastes like ostrich! :irked:.And no, it doesn't taste anything like chicken. It tastes like game. Kind of like a blend between mutton and beef but with a bit of kudu thrown in for good measure. :sherlock:.Of course, biltong tastes like biltong and has to be tried. It's not something that benefits from describing it. :awww:.

  11. From the pics on the Wikipedia page it looks like something I wouldn't want to mess with … those horns – my clacker Does Not Want! :eyes:

  12. ๐Ÿ˜† eish.. Antelope type yes.. It's all wild really though qlue might have a kudu in his bedroom :whistle:.Game has its own 'wild' taste and you can't describe it as chicken ๐Ÿ™„ If you've tried goat meat you'd know the richer flavour it has than mutton. Is all good really but some might be a acquired taste really eh..

  13. I didn't know that one got through. :lol:.I eventually gave up and email a couple of posts in :irked:.I only spent three and a half hours and half my battery trying to post here yesterday!!

  14. Just the serial killer. Although if I've spent half an hour typing an epic on my phone (yesterdays mobile application essay for example) and it only gets smiley comments, that's annoying. :awww: Jokes on the other hand are understandable smiley comment provokers.
