We got this ingenious marshmallow shot glass idea from Cheri at The Watering Mouth. Since we really had a difficult time getting the liquid into the shot without it leaking almost immediately after, we modified this recipe a bit to make it a little more kid-friendly, and also easier for those of us who are slow pourers.
- Large/Jumbo all-natural marshmallows
- Organic chocolate chips for melting.
- Prepared organic hot chocolate. (To make these adult shots, use a liqueur. We like Amarula.)
- Natural graham crackers, crushed – To make these s’mores shots. (Optional)
- Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Keep liquidated and warm while preparing the shot glasses.
- Next, take a fork or a skewer and pierce the center of the marshmallow.
- Toast over low flame if using a gas burner, or if using electric, make sure it is set to high.
- Gently pull fork or skewer out of center of marshmallow. This will also remove some of the center. (The Watering Mouth’s video shows you how to do this.)
- Place on plate or flat surface to allow to cool and center to hollow.
- Repeat to make as many shot “glasses” as desired.
- *Now add the graham cracker crumbs to melted chocolate if using. Use as much as you want, but make sure that the chocolate is still pourable.
- Take 1/2-1 teaspoon chocolate and pour it into the shot glass, creating a layer to stabilize the base. Allow to cool and harden.
- Once all shots have been reinforced with chocolate and it has hardened, pour hot chocolate (or liqueur) in toasted marshmallow shot glasses.
