It's my Blogiversary!9:53 PM
Hey everyone :)
Guess what? My humble little blog is 1 year old! Who would have thought it?
Thankyou so much to all my followers, old and new. You really have made this a joy to me! I appreciate your interest and lovely comments so much, I baked you a cupcake! Don't eat it all at once now :)
I want to share with you a super easy little sweets recipe that I love to make for celebrations, and people love to eat them! Honestly, these little gems only take 10 minutes or so, once you have all your ingredients! And they look so cute, and of course, are so yummy! You can never stop at one!
CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW CUPS
You will need:
- Your favourite milk chocolate! Tastes best with really good couverture chocolate, but most often I use Cadbury Milk chocolate, because its cheaper and so easy to get.
- A bag of marshmallows
- Smarties or m&ms (or other small colourful candy)
- Mini patty pans
Okay! First, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water, or in the microwave (but if you do it this way, be careful! chocolate burns at a really low temperature, so only put it in for short bursts, and stir well.)
Lay out your patty pans, and spoon a dollop of melted chocolate into the bottom. Make them a 1/3 to 1/2 full.
Push in a marshmallow, so the bottom is submerged in the chocolate.
Put another tiny dab of chocolate on the top of the marshmallow, and stick your smartie on top. Repeat with as many as you need, or feel you can eat.
Leave to set. Try and avoid putting them in the fridge, unless you want to eat them really fast, otherwise when you take them out, the condensation collects on the chocolate and the candy, and it can dull and fade the colour. They look best when they're bright, like a rainbow!
Don't they look so cute?
Thanks again everyone, for taking the time to read my ramblings and take a peek at my pictures. I'd like to ask; is there anything you want to see on my blog? Do you have any ideas for posts? What do you like best about An Ode to Reverie? I'd love your feedback!
