Mini Mallomars

Yes I know I’ve been missing in action. I haven’t updated A Cupcake or Two since my Australia Day post. I have a good explanation for the absence. I lost my groove just like Stella did. I am going through some changes at the moment, and it’s made me lose my passion for all things food related. But I’m back. 

I have some exciting post coming up and even a competition that I am hoping you will all love. To get myself back into the groove, I decided to make some Mallomars. Mallomars are basically a biscuit with fluffy marshmallow innards and coated with delicious chocolate.

As you all know, I am a big fan of the express way. I decided to use good ol mini chocolate wheatens instead of making the biscuit base.

I found an easy egg free marshmallow recipe from Kids Spot. It takes a little whipping, but the marshmallow is fluffy and not too sweet.

Chocolate Mallomars (makes approximately 30)
Biscuit Base
1 bag of mini chocolate wheatens
You can also use digestive biscuits or shortbread.
Marshmallow Topping
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon gelatine
2/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
Food colouring (optional)
Chocolate Coating
2 cups of milk chocolate
10 grams of copha or vegetable shortening


Make sure to use a big pot so that the mixture doesn’t boil over. It’s extremely hot and can get very messy.

1. Pour the sugar, gelatine and water into your pot. Stir until combined. Slowly bring to the boil, reduce the heat so it doesn’t boil over. Keep this on low for 10 minutes without stirring.

2. Remove from the heat and cool a further 10 minutes. You can also use a bowl full of ice to cool down the mixture quickly.

3.  Place the mixture into a clean heatproof bowl, add the food colouring and vanilla essence. Mix on medium with a stand mixture until it becomes light and fluffy.

4. Spoon the marshmallow into a piping bag and slowly pipe the marshmallow on each individual mini chocolate wheaten. Allow to set for 10 minutes on a cooling rack.

5. Melt the chocolate and the copha in the microwave for no more than 2 minutes. I did this in 20 second intervals to prevent the chocolate from burning.  Dunk each mallomar into the melted chocolate and allow to set on a cooling rack.

This is super simple treat to make and perfect for a party. An alternative is to make it into a Mallomar Slice. Simply crush some digestive biscuits with some butter and put this into a a lined baking tray. Pour the prepared marshmallow onto the biscuit base and allow to set. Top with some melted chocolate.
