Sounds super tasty. Can’t wait to give it a try. Do you think you’d be able to add mulitpule layers? Like two of marshmallow and peanut butter? Or would the cup not be big enough.
@Sior The game is Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. It’s written in the notes section at the end.
Dark chocolate is easy to melt smoothly as long as you use the bar form broken into chunks and not the chip form! The chips usually have more additives than bars. Just melt the chocolate in chunk form, let it cool a little and then warm it up a tiny bit again to temper it.
You shouldn’t use a double boiler for melting chocolate. It’s a good method if you need to dip a lot of things in chocolate (Like those graham crackers), but if you’re melting it to pour in a mold then you should use the microwave or an oven set to about 150-170F, as long as you take it out and stir it often it won’t overheat.
Water has a chance to seize chocolate, making it gritty and unusable for molding, like the cups. I also just think a plastic bowl and the microwave are generally faster than trying to work with keeping the double boiler temperate.
A fondue pot can also work, but it’s also generally more work than it is worth.
Love it! The hardest part is melting the chocolate. I would advise getting the marshmallow, peanutbutter, grahmcracker “sandwiches” ready beforehand, so you aren’t pressed for time or have to re-melt the chocolate.
I like Vaughn’s idea, if you want to make it taste s’more like a real s’more.
If you don’t have a creme broulee or kitchen torch, a cigarette lighter will work just as well. Impale the marshmallow on a two-pronged meat fork (with wooden or plastic handle) and hold in one hand while using the lighter to torch the marshmallow in the other hand. Might take longer, but just as effective.
Another idea: If you don’t want to cut graham crackers, you can just smash them up into crumbs and use a teaspoon or tablespoon for each cup. Place the graham crackers in a Ziploc bag, seal up the bag, releasing all the air, place on the kitchen counter or table, and using a rolling pin, meat mallet, or sledgehammer, take out all your anger towards your boss/ex/neighbor/kid/etc. on the graham crackers.
Okay, I know it was super awesome that you used mugs and such to hold the shape of the liners, but you should totes email me an address of some sort so I can send you a muffin tin. Dead serious. email@example.com
Recipe question: you say to use marshmallow “fluff” while the picture shows marshmallow “cream”. Big, BIG difference here. Can they be used interchangeably or should we stick with the “cream”. By the way(for those asking) Marshmallow FLUFF is NOTHING LESS than, light and fluffy food for heavenly creatures. A blissful delight that NO man, woman, or child should be deprived of enjoying. If you have to ask what it is, I’ll be inclined to pray for your sole!
