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?!?!

This is a great recipe for parties -- any liqueur will work. You can even just do this with kids and use chocolate milk instead!
Author:
Cuisine: Cocktails
Serves: 4 shots
Ingredients
  • 4 marshmallows, regular size
  • 2 ounces any flavor liqueur
  • 2 forks
  • electric burner (or gas fireplace/burner)
  • plate
Instructions
  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. http://wondermade.com

  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!

  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!
