I’ve been sharing this cupcake with my culinary class students lately and it’s so good I wanted to share with you, too!
For a vegetarian, regular marshmallows aren’t an option because they contain gelatin. Worry no more, my fellow gelatin adversaries! These cupcakes fix that challenge and even have the oooey-gooey roasted marshmallows on top.
Here’s what you will need:
1 batch of My Favorite Chocolate Cupcakes
1 container of Suzanne’s RiceMellow (like marshmallow fluff, only free of eggs)
1 bag of Dandies vegan marshmallows
Bake the cupcakes according to this recipe and allow them to cool.
On top of each cupcake, put a quick schmear of the RiceMellow. This will act as glue for the marshmallows.
Place a few Dandies marshmallows on top of the RiceMellow.
Roast with an Orka Kitchen Torch or place under the broiler in your oven. Keep a very close eye on these if you are using the broiler.
Once marshmallows are roasted to your liking (I like mine crunchy on the outside), stick a piece of a graham cracker in the top.
There you have it! A super easy way to make a very boutique-y cupcake in a hurry. This is faster than whipping up frosting. And…it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan and tastes amazing.
So tell me, dear readers, how do you like your marshmallows roasted? Just lightly browned? Burnt to a crisp? A little crispy on the outside yet gooey on the inside? Tell me what makes you want s’more!
