Hi everybody! It’s been too long since we have talked … so nice to be back ;) How have you been? Did you have a nice summer? I did receive some emails from readers … thank you so much … I’m fine and back! Kids are back in school, autumn officially begins next week and summer weather continues in my neck of the woods! Today, I’m sharing a little project that I took to a friend’s “movie night” earlier this summer. She and her hubby hosted an outdoor movie in the cul-de-sac for neighbors and friends … Marshmallow Popcorn Cupcakes seemed very appropriate …
I made mini-cupcakes, frosted them and added marshmallows … used yellow sugar as the “butter”! Now that I look back on the photos … more marshmallows could have been added for a fuller appearance, but it didn’t stop them from being snatched up!
Oh, the movie we watched was an old Lucille Ball movie … The Long, Long Trailer. If you are a trailer owner, you’d probably appreciate the humor in it! The hubby and I own a very short trailer and you will never find me in a dress, heels and pearls cooking dinner in the trailer ;) However the hubby and I finally painted our trailer this summer … honestly, he painted and I applied the pin-stripping …
Not too bad for a couple of amateurs and ordinary cans of spray paint … please don’t stand too close … you’ll see a few boo-boos ;)
Back to the cupcakes … one box of cake mix yields about 36-48 mini-cupcakes. My paper liners were on the taller side and I got 36 cupcakes. I used the entire bag of marshmallows, but you can see in the photos that I didn’t make each marshmallow into “popcorn” … my hands got tired, that’s a lot of marshmallows! I probably did about 2/3 to 3/4 of the 10 ounce bag and just filled in with the remaining marshmallows.
Marshmallow Popcorn Cupcakes
- Mini-cupcakes (36-48)
- Vanilla frosting
- 1/2 cup yellow sugar
- 10 ounce bag mini-marshmallows
- Using scissors, cut an “X” in marshmallows about half-way down. (The scissors do get sticky and will need to be cleaned off occasionally.)
- Holding the uncut side of the marshmallow, dip the cut portion into the yellow sugar.
- Continue with remaining marshmallows.
5. Frost cupcakes, apply marshmallow popcorn and sprinkle remaining yellow sugar on cupcakes if desired.
It truly is nice to be back … the hubby even asked me if I’m ever going to blog again! I think that’s “hubby talk” for “When are going to make some cookies or brownies?”
So … what have you been up to? I ♥ your comments!
