I was on Facebook the other day when my friend Eleanor posted an awesome picture of a toasted marshmallow shot glass. My jaw dropped just like it always does when I see genius of this magnitude, so I knew I had to try it out to see if it worked.

Mainly I was curious if it would work at all, because I thought the marshmallow would be too porous, but hey, a girl can dream right?

Well, it does work, turns out. Half the time. It is a really finicky thing to make, but when you get it right, it is so so super cool. It would be a hit at any party, even if it doesn’t quite work all the time. Just the toasting of the marshmallows over an open flame, or in my case, a red hot electric burner, lol, is entertaining. But then getting to shoot liqueur from the marshmallow…yeah. Next level.

So when I went to go make this, I had to try about 12 different marshmallows to figure out the best way. Make sure the marshmallow is really perfect looking, the less oblong the marshmallow, the better luck you will have.

As I state though, even if you can’t get your marshmallow to work perfectly, like if it leaks or something, sopping up alcohol (or chocolate milk!) with a marshmallow…well, there definitely are worse things you could be doing. AMIRITE?!?!

Toasted Marshmallow Shot Glass
Cook time
Total time
This is a great recipe for parties -- any liqueur will work. You can even just do this with kids and use chocolate milk instead!
Cuisine: Cocktails
Serves: 4 shots
  • 4 marshmallows, regular size
  • 2 ounces any flavor liqueur
  • 2 forks
  • electric burner (or gas fireplace/burner)
  • plate
  1. Turn on your electric burner to red-hot high.
  2. Stick a fork in a marshmallow, being careful not to pierce the bottom.
  3. Hold the marshmallow side 2-3 inches over the burner. When it begins to smoke and brown, turn it again. Brown all sides of the marshmallow evenly, excluding the top where the fork is. Use the second fork to hold the marshmallow on while browning the bottom.
  4. Slide the marshmallow off the fork onto a plate and allow to cool completely. The inside will implode naturally.
  5. Pour liqueur into the cooled marshmallow and shoot immediately. If you wait too long, it will soak through the marshmallow.
  6. Eat the marshmallow!


Things to Keep In Mind:

  • Toast all sides of the marshmallow evenly so you don’t get thin spots.
  • Have a fire extinguisher handy…seriously. This is dangerous. Don’t let your kids do the toasting part. Blah blah disclaimer blah.
  • Don’t burn the marshmallow too bad or the walls will get too thin.
  • Putting marshmallows in freezer to cool faster doesn’t work.
  • Only pour liqueur when ready to shoot, otherwise it will just soak through.
  • Make sure to have a plate underneath or you’ll have a big mess.
  • Don’t forget to eat the marshmallow after. YUM. Sticky, soppy, alcohol-y mess ftw!!

  1. Genius.

  2. I saw this concept on FB too. Maybe it was from you. I can’t remember. I’m not much of a “shot” girl but I love the creativity. If you like booze and marshmallows, I think you should really check out my friend’s marshmallow business. Jenn and her husband Nathan live in the Orlando area and she makes them all by hand. They’re best known for their boozy marshmallows, like Bourbon, Guinness Champagne/Gold and Mimosa, but they also do seasonal flavors, like Honey, Strawberry and Lavender. They would be small and soft to make shot glasses though.

  3. Can you make ahead for a party and freeze?

  4. Jenn, awesome! I will definitely check them out. Boozy marshmallows…?! WHAT. Lol, love that! The coolest part of this is that I was thinking that you could use chocolate milk instead, and just use it as a treat for the kiddos! :D xo

  5. Jean, actually, unfortunately no. I tried to freeze some and they got all weird and then just fell apart when I tried to pour the liqueur in. BUT – you could make them ahead of time, say an hour or so, and just leave them out. They will survive the way! And you really have to let them cool anyway before you pour the liquor in.

  6. I can’t take credit for the original idea, but you’re right — it is genius! :D

  7. also -Strawberries hollowed out with whipped cream vodka….try it youll like it!

  8. Okay, I just have to say…I found this post via a comment you left on Derek Halpern’s blog. And I am IN LOVE. Those marshmallow shots look out of this world!!!

  9. Thank you so much Erika, they are so much fun!! You’ve gotta try them!!

  10. I just happen to have some of that vodka…will get strawberries STAT!! :)

  11. I love it!!! Your video was super cute. These would make for a really fun & messy party. Now we just need Pinnacle to make S’mores flavored vodka.

  12. Thank you so much Kelley!! TOTALLY AGREE :D

  13. Omg…my grandma used to make these for us! She would set up the marshmallow cups and serve them with fudge and graph cracker crumbs or chocolate milk…and my fav she would fill with peanut butter and chocolate drizzle…thanks for bringing a oldie back!

  14. Oh my goodness Ashley, your grandma ROCKS!! That is soooo cool, you’re welcome. :) TO YOUR GRANDMA!

  15. Those marshmallow shot glasses look awesome! Thanks for the video tutorial: I can’t wait to try this out with my friends! :)

  16. You’re so welcome Anita! Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Cheri, after salivating over the many adult beverage ideas that came streaming through my head, I’m so glad I read through the comments. LOVE your idea about serving chocolate milk in them for the kids!

  18. hi Cheri. This one is really cool. And I’m thinking of doing this on xmas with my favorite Baileys…thanks for sharing.

  19. I really love that turquoise plate.

  20. You are very welcome! Even if they fall apart easy, they’re still fun!!

  21. I think I am in love….THANK YOU!

  22. Cheri, I have this ( and I am currently cooking up TONS of fun ideas – it’s silicone, so that means it can go in the oven! Cookie shots in cookie shot glasses, maybe a cheesecake shot in a graham cracker shot glass? Bloody mary shots in… garlic bread?

  23. You are AWESOME girl!! I saw this before but hadnt gotten one yet. Maybe I
    need to invest!! :D THANK YOU

    but omg bloody mary shots in garlic bread?! you evil genius!!! how about spiked gazpacho?! aghhh!! HUNGRY/THIRSTYY

  24. Awesome, can’t wait to try.

  25. Thank you Liz!

  26. Three Olives makes a s’mores vodka! I can’t wait to try this.

  27. Ohhh yeah, I like how you think Penney!!

  28. I just watched this video & you are seriously the cutest! Also, these are genius. Love the idea for the holiday season

  29. Love this idea! Will have one tonight – thanks! How about bloody mary in a cucumber cup? Cut cucumber into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Take a small melon baller and scoop out the insides. Fill with bloody mary. Ta da! Just made it up and haven’t tried it.

  30. Oh man Jen you are the best!! Thank you so much for the fantastic idea! You’re so creative! I think I just might have to make that…and it’s almost-kinda healthy too!! :D

  31. Aww thank you JW!!! That’s so sweet of you. I hope you try them out! Check out the DIY Peppermint Shot Glasses while you’re at it, they’re super easy too!!

    Any recipes for Bailey’s out of a shoe?

  33. HELP! I just tried making these using a gas stove but they keep heating up too fast and just keep burning. I’ve tried high heat, low heat, holding the forks different distances from the flame….nothing is making them look like yours. Any suggestions? I love this idea and definitely want to make them for a party tomorrow!

  34. Ugh, I’m so sorry I didn’t get back with you sooner! I’m out of town currently. :( Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to test with gas stoves because I don’t have access to one, but I heard of others having the same difficulty. And the other thing is, they don’t last very long, so it’s more like you gotta make them right before you’re going to drink out of them and cross your fingers that they work :) But they’re fun to get messy with! :D :D Good luck, and might I suggest the peppermint shot glasses instead — they work quite well! :D Happy New Year!

  35. I have about a million Bailey’s out of a shoe.…creamy beige!!!

  36. Aw, thank you so much! I just appreciate a response at all! I was able to find an electric burner and I got down and dirty with a bag of marshmallows! Sadly, I didn’t know that they are best made shortly before you plan on eating them sooooo I’m hoping that keeping them at room temp will still be okay. I’ll just liquor my friends up before we do them :) Thank you again and I can’t wait to try more of your recipes….especially the peppermint shot glasses! Happy New Year!

  37. You’re so welcome! I’m glad you figured out something. How about you make a drinking game out of it and whoever’s marshmallow falls apart automatically has to take 2 shots! Whoever’s stays together for the first shot doesn’t have to drink! :D Good luck and have fun!! xoxo Happy New Year!

  38. Hi Cheri and Happy New Year!

    We just wanted to say how fantastic this shot serving idea is! Your work and blog are beautiful, and so we just HAD to share your genius with our readers over at our New Years blog, !

    We sure hope you, your family, and your friends all had a great New Year! We can’t wait to see what amazing dishes you come up with next!

  39. Thank you so much for the foodie love and the post on your site! HAPPY NEW YEAR to you as well!!

  40. OH. EM. GEE. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the amazing recipe! These were SUCH a hit at our New Year’s Eve party! I have made these every day since New Year’s day for friends and family who saw these on my social media and they are obsessed. I found a couple tips and tricks from my experience that I will be writing up for the revamp of my blog ‘She Said That Too’. The post should be up in the next couple of days so stay tuned and thank you again for your shot glass amazingness!

    PS: We didn’t make a drinking game out of it because that means someone wouldn’t be able to drink….and that’s no fun :)

  41. I make mudslide pudding shots with coffee liqueur and Irish cream, chocolate pudding an whip cream. These would be an awesome vessel for those!!!

  42. That sounds amazing!!!

  43. Love to try these – looking forward to the right occasion. Absolutely loved watching your video and hope can do them (and you) justice

  44. Appreciate it Sue! Good luck — they are SUPER finicky!!!

  45. Such a great idea!I just tried making these and it was super easy. I have a gas stove which I lit on medium heat. I toasted the bottom first then the sides. The trick I found was to hold the fork about 6″ above the flame and continuously turn the fork to toast the marshmallow evenly. They all imploded perfectly. I served them with triple espresso vodka. Delicious!!

  46. Omg, I am so going to try this out! Looks amazing, but dangerous lol. But worth it…!

  47. Yay!! Let me know how it goes!!!

  48. Hey Cheri,

    What a sweet idea! (Sorry for the shameless pun.)
    I’m going to make these for a(n after) Christmas party, and I’m trying to come up with a game plan before I ruin all the marshmallows the night of and end up with no shot glasses for the baileys I just bought! Lol. I have a gas stove, and I see that there has been some difficulty with this. Do you think I could use a food torch for these? Also, you think I should make these about an hour before?


  49. Hey Justine!! I know they are persnickety, but keep in mind that many people have reported that half the fun is in them falling apart and slurping up marshmallow and liquor :) Hahah – just make sure you have a plate underneath! I don’t suggest making them ahead of time, however. It can be fun for everyone (adults of course) to try to make their own, kinda like a campfire. I haven’t tried with a torch, so you try it out and let me know how it works! Whatever happens, the novelty of it is for sure fun! Have a great party!!
