Marshmallow & Chocolate Treats

These last couple of days have been playing catch-up for me. After being set back a couple of days, I’ve been working sun-to-sun (or more like sun-to-midnight) and finally starting to make some good dents on my pending task list. Now, I haven’t been able to cook at all…. Until a few days ago. I was itching so bad to do something that I ended up whipping a recipe for Marshmallow & Chocolate Treats. A Foodies’ Original! I thought at first of adding cocoa to the melted marshmallows, but it would get too dried up. Then it came to me. Add an entire bag of chocolate chips. Genius. It should work.

And it did. My dad already had a few bites that same night and some more the next morning. I tried it out later, and it is a perfect mix of marshmallow treats with chocolate bar, not too sweet, with a slight nutty flavor from browning the butter (like I did on the Brown Butter Crispy Treats), rich chocolate with a little espresso powder to bring out more chocolatyness (did I just made up a word?) and a touch of sprinkles just because I can.

You could replace the espresso powder with a little bit of instant coffee or even a bit of cayenne pepper, and maybe add a bit of nuts. Go crazy. Mix and match. then enjoy the fruit of your creativity!

Candy Corn Treats

With everything being as crazy as it’s been, why not whip something up for Halloween? Every kid loves Treats, and by adding a few drops of food coloring to the marshmallow, you can change the look of the usual Puffed Rice Treats. I found that using a measuring cup to make the round shape was much more accurate than making it by hand!

Extra Tip:

  • You can make the recipe as usual, but add a few green food coloring gel to the marshmallow mix and when the treats are set, you can dip the tops in chocolate like Helga did on this post last year and have lil’ Frankenstein Monster treats!
We hope you have a safe and fun Halloween!

The Foodies’ Kitchen Halloween

Oh, how we enjoy this time of year!  In Guatemala the weather starts to get colder, and yet we have blue skies.  Unlike other areas in the World that get to enjoy the fall foliage, this is probably the greenest part of the year for us since rainy season is on its way out.

Halloween is almost here, but months before it arrives we are already searching for the recipes and decoration ideas we will be trying out at home… although, we do have special motivation with my 4 year old daughter, Kristen.
This post is a roundup of our own recipes from the last couple of years, we wanted to have everything in one place  so hopefully you can find inspiration for your own spooky Halloween!
(click on the orange titles, this will take you to our Facebook albums which have direct links to all the recipes)

Here are a few ideas you can use:
Dip strawberries into melted chocolate and use Halloween sprinkles to decorate, do the same with marshmallows.

Don’t forget we’re also on Pinterest!

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
