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.

  24. Fun! I’ve made marshmallows at home a few times and they really are a world away from the grocery store ones. Which doesn’t mean the store ones aren’t good, and I actually just made a batch of Krispie Treats this weekend using chocolate Frosted Flakes instead. Mmm. Yep, my favorite.

  25. I am loving all these marshmallow posts for the Sweet 16! I have yet to make my own, but I do love marshmallows even in their commercial form…my favorite? A recipe of my grandmother’s that includes almond bark, peanuts, rice krispies and peanut butter. Yum!!

  36. One of my favorite ways of eating marshmallows is in smores. It reminds me of being carefree and young, and camping with my friends. I also put them in hot chocolate. Today would be a good day for that. We got 8.5 inches of snow overnight. Yeah! Thanks for the giveaway.

  37. I love using marshmallow cream in vanilla marshmallow frosting for cupcakes. Growing up I use to love banana and marshmallow cream shakes. Yum!

  38. What a fun little competition, and I love your bars!! My favorite way to have marshmallows is just straight into my mouth!! Honestly – they are a regular snack around here!

  39. Oh girl marshmallows are perfect in smores, but really they belong in a frozen concoction of peanut butter, marshmallows and fudge sauce in ice cream. HA! At least that’s what I’m craving. LOL

  40. My absolute favorite marshmallow recipe is a Banana Boat. I’ve made them for years as a girl scout, and any time I go camping, I always bring the supplies because I’m obsessed and I prefer them to s’mores.

    So, Banana Boats. If you’ve never had one, I highly suggest you go make yourself one (or a dozen) right this second.

    You need:
    Chocolate Chips
    Tin Foil

    Leaving the peel on, cut your banana in half (though make sure you don’t cut all the way through). Stuff the slit with chocolate and marshmallows. Wrap in tin foil. Place in a campfire (or the oven) until everything is a gooey mess (ours usually took less than 15 minutes).

  41. I also followed you on Pinterest, repinning the Vanilla Cake Batter and White Chocolate Chip Caramel Corn recipe.
