Marshmallow Madness Cookbook Giveaway – 3 Winners

I was asked by Quirk Books and Serious Eats to participate in Marsh Madness, a friendly little competition among bloggers.

We’re celebrating the launch of Shauna Server’s book, Marshmallow Madness, and our task was to create a fabulous marshmallow-based recipe.

I love marshmallows and so March Madness Marsh Madness was right up my alley.

I came up with Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies Smores Bars

Let’s talk about the layers in these bars. It’s not a proper dessert to me if it doesn’t have about 17 flavors and textures and layers going on.

These have plenty going on.

 If you need more marshmallow-based recipes, I have one or two…

Deep Dish Double Chocolate Golden Grahams Smores Bars (Vegan & GF options)

White Chocolate Vanilla Marshmallow Cake Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough & Marshmallow Stuffed Rice Krispie Bars (No Bake)

One of my Favorite Recipes of 2011 is Marshmallow Peanut Butter Double Chocolate Pillowtop Bars (GF with Vegan options)

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Bars with Vegan Chocolate Frosting (No Bake)

Double Chocolate Caramel Corn & Cocoa Rice Krispies Candy Bars (No-Bake with Vegan & GF options)

Twinkies (3 ingredients, no added oil or butter)

Yes, I love marshmallows.

If you’d like to make Smores or something from Shauna’s book with marshmallows, you’re in luck because…

…3 Readers will win a copy of Marshmallow Madness

I am absolutely loving the book. It’s chock full of recipes for homemade marshmallows with really unique flavors such as root beer float marshmallows, bacon-flavored marshmallows, and there are recipes for how to make homemade graham crackers and whoopie pies. As a bonus, the book cover is “puffy” and squishy, adding to the overall fun factor.
