Marshmallow & Chocolate Strawberries

Marshmallow & Chocolate Strawberries

I bought a new little nifty torch and I was trying to come up with other ways to use it beside creme brulee and this was one of the way I use mine.  My kids line up to get their strawberry, it make a great treat! Plus you can make only one if you need a quick sugar fix.

Torch

You will notice on my blog that we really like strawberries!  Maybe like is not the best word it’s more like LOVE!  So to make this I stab a strawberry with a fork in the leaves and dip the strawberry in Marshmallow Cream, twirling it around until the bottom of the strawberry is covered.  Then I just take my torch and roast it to desired roast.  Finally just drizzle with Chocolate! It’s that simple and it only takes a minute!

Note: Strawberries have to be dry when you put them in the marshmallow cream or it does not stick.

This is one of my personal favorites! If you went to my sister Berkleigh’s wedding this is what we did as one of her desserts.  In Berkleigh’s wedding we used angel food cake instead of pound cake.  Both ways are excellent though.

I have also used raspberries and strawberries over angel food cake.  The fruit combinations here are endless.  In the picture I used Costco pound cake.

Strawberry and Banana Trifle

1 (3.4 oz) Vanilla instant pudding
2 cups milk
1 (8 oz) cream cheese (room temp)
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tbsp powder sugar
2 cups fresh strawberries
2-3 medium sized bananas
1-2 angel food cakes or 2-3 pound cakes (I usually make the boxed angel food cake)

Directions:

In a bowl combine your milk and pudding and mix for 5 minutes.

In another bowl with a beater mix the cream cheese and sweetened condense milk together until smooth.

In a third bowl beat the heavy cream and powder sugar together until thick and creamy.

Fold in the heavy cream mixture into the cream cheese mixture and mix until smooth.  Then add that to the pudding mixture and mix until it’s completely mixed.  Pour over angel food cake or pound cake and fruit in desired format.

Butterscotch Chews

Butterscotch Chews

These are definitely a favorite in our family! They are like Hawaiian Haystacks but not at the same time.  They are a butterscotch marshmallow chewy cookie and strangely addicting.  I don’t think they are the prettiest cookie but they sure are great!  I make these all throughout the year because they are so simple to make.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Butterscotch Chews

On medium low heat pour one bag of Marshmallows (regular size) and three tablespoons of butter into a large saucepan and melt until creamy.  Stir constantly until melted.  I have burned the marshmallow once or twice because I either had the heat up to high or didn’t stir it.  So I guess I am a marshmallow snob because I have tried it with a generic marshmallow and it does not taste the same as the Kraft Jet-puffed ones.  Having said that, it may be in my head but either way I will only use those on this recipe!

Butterscotch chips time! Pour those in and stir until they melt completely.

Once the butterscotch has melted and is a creamy mixture you can add the chow mein noodles.

Butterscotch Chews

Mix in your chow mein noodles.  I usually do not use the entire bag.  I like mixing these a little on the marshmallow side so they are super chewy.  I leave about a cup in the bag.  When you stir these the noodle break a bit but that is OK.  Mix them until it is mixed evenly and the chow mein is covered with the marshmallow mixture.  This can take a bit of arm strength to mix.

Butterscotch Chews

Fun part! drop them in spoonfuls on parchment paper (I usually coat in butter or just spray with Pam) in the desired size. Mine are usually 1 1/2” or so.  This recipe makes about 60 cookies.  They are not perfectly round.  You can just dumped the whole thing out and cut them into squares later for a chewy bar type of thing.

Chinese Chews

1 pkg. marshmallows
1 pkg. chow Mein noodles
1 pkg. butterscotch chips
3 tbsp. butter

Melt marshmallows, butter, Butterscotch chips in a large sauce pan stirring constantly.  When they are melted completely remove from heat and add chow Mein noodles.  (I usually don’t add the whole bag, just too desired consistency.)  Stir until noodles are completely covered and then scoop out by spoonful’s on Pam or butter sprayed tinfoil.  Makes about 60 cookies.
