Monster S’more Cake

I think this may be it with me and marshmallows for a while (probably…possibly…perhaps not), but really, you can’t go on a marshmallow run without addressing the obvious: s’mores! Which, btw, is one of the only two things I like about camping. The other one is campfires—I’m all for being out in nature, but when I’m done with that I want to sleep in a bed, and blow dry my hair in the morning. Anyhoo, I dreamed up this recipe—which is essentially one giant s’more—on one of my Sunday night creative surges where I’m about two minutes from going to bed, then I think of something I NEED to make first thing in the morning. So, off to the grocery store at 11:30pm I go. What can I say…you’re welcome. šŸ™‚ Just a heads up: be sure to scroll all the way down for a closer look at these serving suggestions: Ā Ā Ā  So many ways to do it up s’mores style! Go crazy with this one. I sure did. M Monster S’more Cake Dessert | …

Image Gallery: Souped-Up Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows

I did a post a couple of weeks ago for Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows with Strawberry Hats and loved them so much that I couldn’t help but wonder…what elseĀ could I put on top of chocolate-covered strawberries? Turns out, LOTS of stuff, as you’ll see below. I love these because they are very simple to prepare, but they areā€”quite literallyā€”some serious eye candy. And because the topper possibilities are endless, you can easily make them work for any party theme…bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, etc. Choose your topper according to your color scheme! I tried lots of stuff…strawberry slices, shaved coconut, kiwi slices, halved raspberries, sliced crystalized ginger, dried mango and pineapple, assorted candies and sprinkles, crushed rock candy, shaved chocolate, and mini chocolate chips. Any otherĀ ideas out there? Please share in the comments! I had a lot of fun with these…hope you do too. (P.S. Stay tuned for some homemade versions for the Fourth of July. Coming soon!)
