Chocolate marshmallow whoopie pies

Posted by Frances Chan on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, In : small cakes 

Whoopie pies are a wholly American invention and they are not such a phenomenon in New Zealand, hence I have never made them before until now. It combines features of a cookie, cake, pie and sandwich and the result is rather delicious. I cut back on the sugar and used sugar-free marshmallows too.

Makes 24-30 sandwiched pies

1 1/2 c flour

1/2 c cocoa

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

150g softened butter

Vegan marshmallows

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, October 30, 2017, In : sweets 

Another experiment with aquafaba. Turned out well, although they became quite sticky after a day, need to dry them out at room temperature for longer. Quite satisfying making your own marshmallows without gelatin. You'll need a kitchen thermometer. This is adapted from Seitan Is My Motor.

For dusting:
1/2 c cornflour
1/2 c icing sugar

1/2 c toasted desiccated coconut

For the marshmallows:
1/2 c  water plus 1/4 c water
2 tsp agar powder
3/4 c sugar
1/3 c glucose syrup
1/2 c aquafaba (brine from can of c...

Marshmallow fridge slice

Posted by Bake Club on Monday, December 19, 2016, In : slices 

An easy, indulgent, no-bake slice good for parties and get-togethers. You can basically chuck in anything you like with the chocolate, any nuts or dried fruit will give a crunchy, chewy texture. I prefer a tart fruit such as cranberries or cherries to offset the chocolate.

200g milk or dark chocolate, as you prefer
2 Tbs golden syrup
200g digestive biscuits
1/2 c mini marshmallows
1/2 c dried cranberries

Chocolate mendiants

Posted by Bake Club on Saturday, October 22, 2016, In : sweets 

Chocolate mendiants are traditional French sweets during Christmas time. The chocolate discs are studded with nuts and fruit to represent the four monastic orders of the church - usually raisins, figs, hazelnuts and almonds. In our household, however, I make chocolate treats all year round. These ones are decorated with goji berries and coconut, apricots and almonds, pumpkin seeds and ginger, and mini marshmallows. Just go crazy with your toppings...

Makes 12 little discs

Posted by Bake Club on Tuesday, December 22, 2015, In : cookies

Vegetarian marshmallows

Found this great recipe for marshmallows on Be Miam that uses agar agar instead of gelatin! Turned out really well. The only thing I would change next time would be less sugar. I rolled mine in toasted coconut.
