Uh, so there was a sale, and I bought 5 packets of marshmallows for $1 a pack (!!!), except now I don't know what to do with the rest.  I'm allergic to nuts, but otherwise, I'm open to suggestions!  Smiley

Do you have s'mores in Australia?  Toasted marshmallow sandwiches with chocolate and graham crackers?  We also use them to top candied sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving.

We don't have graham crackers (that I've ever seen).  Sad  Can I substitute like, Marie biscuits instead?

I don't see why not.   Smiley The best way to toast the marshmallows are over an open fire but I've also seen s'more recipes that call for them toasted under a broiler or microwaved, right on top of the graham cracker.

Personally, I used to stick them on skewers and roast them over a gas stove.  Tongue

Yum!~  Quick question, the mister doesn't much like plain rice crispie squares (he'll eat them, but he'll be ambivalent about it).  Would it be possible to dip them in chocolate or add like, chocolate sprinkles or gummy candy to the mix riiiiiight at the end?

I have a bag of marshmallows and I don't know what to do with them either... I'm thinking of making chocolate cupcakes and right before I insert them into the oven them i'll stuff a few into the center off each cupcake then bake!
I'm hungry just thinking bout it! Lol

Chocolate mousse. Raw-egg free so suitable for the very young, very old and very pregnant...

3 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
9 ounces best quality semisweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces (or semisweet chocolate drops)
1/4 cup very strong black coffee
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Put the marshmallows, butter, chocolate and coffee in a heavy-based saucepan.
Heat over medium heat until consistent in texture and marshmallows are melted. Remove from the heat and allow to start cooling.
Whip the cream with the vanilla until thick and then fold into the cooling chocolate mixture until you have a smooth, cohesive mixture.
Pour into serving bowls, chill until set.

It's super rich, so trust me when I say you don't need much. I made it in teensy little dixie cups for the holidays and that worked beautifully.
