Campfire Marshmallow Shooters

WE SERVED THIS AT THE RESTAURANT A FEW YEARS BACK, warmed, in a shot glass, as part of a special 25-course New Year’s Eve menu. I came up with this idea simply because I wanted to create a familiar flavour in liquefied form—and toasted marshmallow is so nostalgic, it makes everybody smile. — M.L.



  • 1 bag ordinary store-bought marshmallows

METHODUsing old-fashioned means (stick and campfire) or the latest kitchen equipment (blowtorch and baking sheet), toast the marshmallows until soft and golden, rotating them until evenly caramelized. Let cool slightly. Transfer to a blender and add cold water to cover. Blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a saucepan on low heat. Warm through and serve in shot glasses (or use as a sauce for a chocolate-based dessert).
