Back in February when we visited family in SLC my sister in law and I talked about making marshmallows and baking a few different desserts, but we just never got the chance to. While we were out shopping one day, I found a candy cup mold and just couldn’t resist (in hind sight I wish I had bought two or three). Finally last week I decided to christen the mold and make my own toasted coconut marshmallow cups. Rich dark chocolate, fluffy marshmallow and lightly toasted coconut make these candy cups hard to resist.
Growing up I was always a fan of Mallo Cups and the thought of making my own was something I have been planning for quite some time now. So when I found out that the secret ingredient for this month’s Chocolate Party was coconut, I knew the time had come. What’s the Chocolate Party you may be asking? Well, every month Roxana’s Home Baking hosts a “chocolate link party” where like minded lovers of chocolate come together and share their latest creations. It’s delicious and tempting and you simply must check it out!
Candy cup making is sticky business. Delicious, chocolatey, sticky work that I loved every minute of. Plus I just love how easy it is to make marshmallows, I honestly can’t believe I waited so long to try them. Subsequently I now have a huge list of flavors I want to experiment with in the near future. My daughter loved eating these just as much as I did, so it made the work all the sweeter. As the temperatures are rising here the last week, it was nice not to bake for once. Don’t have a fancy candy cup mold? no worries, just use paper cupcake liners, whatever size you have on hand will be fine. I recommend miniature paper liners since these are a rich chocolate treat. I hope you’ll enjoy these toasted coconut marshmallow cups as much as we do!
