Mint-Mallow Chocolate Cups Recipe

These cute filled chocolate cups get gobbled up whenever I set them out. The fluffy mint filling pairs well with the chocolate.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour + chilling YIELD:18 servings


  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 drops red or green food coloring
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons crushed peppermint and/or spearmint candies, divided


  • 1. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Brush evenly on the inside of 18 foil miniature muffin cup liners. Refrigerate until set. Add a second coat of chocolate; chill until set.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, cook and stir marshmallows and milk until marshmallows are melted. Remove from the heat. Stir in the extracts, food coloring and salt. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until thickened.
  • 3. Carefully peel liners from the chocolate cups and discard. In a large bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in marshmallow mixture and 2 tablespoons crushed candies. Spoon into chocolate cups. Sprinkle with remaining candies. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.

"Diabetic friendly?!!! It contains chocolate, and not the low sugar variety, and MARSHMALLOWS which are so high in sugar, I use them to treat hypoglycaemia."

"These are amazing and so easy! They're very refreshing after a big dinner when you don't want a heavy dessert. You HAVE TO use the foil cups though... trust me on this one! ;)"
