Chocolate Marshmallow Frosting

30 May 2013


Gotta say, this saucy frosting takes the cake. I am not really sure this is frosting really, it's more like a saucy, gnashy, yummy silk that can be poured over a cake - but I am cool with whatever you would like to call it.


 I have a thing for marshmallows. Speaking of which, I came across the most amazing thing ever, these home made marshmallow ropes. I mean how amazing is that. But then again, it shouldn't surprise me. Heather from Sprinkle Bakes makes the most amazing things. I genuinely love her blog. It makes me so happy and really appeals to me. So I visit often. It's one of my happy places! I loved the marshmallow ropes so much so much I that they inspired me to make these cute charms. I haven't decided what to do with them yet, but I love them!

 P.s - if you want to see how tiny they are, check out my instagram picture.

So make sure you visit her - I can guarantee it inspire you and will make you happy!
 

And while her page is loading in another tab, you can get back to this saucey frosting!


It starts off pretty much like the base to this 3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse, so you have to know that this is rich and chocolatey!


You put some marshmallows, heavy whipping cream (or milk) and chocolate into a thick based pot and melt the chocolate and marshmallows on the stove on a medium heat until you have a rich, smooth sauce. Then, let it cool for 10-20 minutes before you slather your cake in it.


That's it. Promise.

I even used it between the layers of my cake. And I iced my cake while the sponge was still warm, so it literally just sank in and made a soft, gooey layer between the sponges.

*swoon*melt*

Try it some time, I know you will LOVE it!
