Somehow over the course of a couple of days, we got from this:


To this:


Well… I blame Rebecca, who said this:


See… On Sunday, my birthday, the kids presented me with a homemade marshmallow “shooter.” They made some for themselves too. After the kids went to bed, we adults tried them out. I have to admit they are fun. The photo (above) on Facebook was proof.

Rebecca glanced at my caption before looking at the photo and thought I was talking about some kind of mixed drink. I saw her comment and thought, why shouldn’t there be a drink too? So, I mused on it a little, and chatted with my friend Stacy and bought some supplies… And last night we experimented a little coming up with…

The Marshmallow Shooter

1/2 c. Chocolate Chips
2 Graham Crackers (crushed)
Shot glasses

Crush the graham crackers (we did it by hand)
Melt the chocolate chips (we did it in the microwave)


Dip the shot glass in the chocolate (I was pretty generous with the chocolate), and then coat with graham cracker crumbs. Toast your marshmallows. (We didn’t have a fire or hot coals, we used a candle, which doesn’t really toast the marshmallow–but it got the edges crispy. I think it’s better that the inside of the marshmallow is not melted).


Fill your shot glass with bourbon.


Put the marshmallow into the glass and let it soak for a minute. Take a bite of bourbon-soaked marshmallow, and then a sip of burbon with the coated rim. Enjoy! (Warning: This type of deliciousness has been known to lead to repeat consumption, and even rare cases of ukulele playing.)

    This is the most insane cocktail ever. Of course I adore it.

    Thanks! We felt pretty insane creating it, which was half the fun. Will reprise them for sure at our cottage in Wisconsin later this summer.

    I am so honored to have inspired a gooey fireside drink.  Quite possibly my proudest accomplishment this summer : )

    Hope to share one with you sometime, Rebecca!

    Oh, my. I just found this and want to make these! I’m thinking of getting a high-alcohol bourbon so I can flame the marshmallows over the burbon.
