Taste Testing with Malvi Marshmallows


I'm a sucker for small companies that sell really interesting products, especially when it involves anything sweet! About six months back, I made a post about Edoughble cookie dough that you could eat right out of the package, and now I'm here to tell you about Malvi Marshmallow Confections, based out of Georgia! Malvi is a company that prides itself on making delicious, bite-sized marshmallow treats, sandwiched between two petit beurre cookies, and they are as delicious as they look! They come in a handful of flavors including: Red Velvet, Vanilla Salted Caramel, Mint Chocolate, Spiked Espresso, and Raspberry Hibiscus! They sell the cookies separately. I especially love the punch of salted caramel in the Vanilla ones, but the Red Velvet are good, too! I'm definitely going to order some of these as gifts during this holiday season.

You can order your perfect pack of yummy Malvi marshmallows here!

Brown Butter Bourbon Rice Krispies Treats



As a child, I loved rice krispies treats. Of course, the famous kind that come in a shiny blue package were always nice to break open on a lunch break at school, but I remember having play dates with friends where we would spend the entire hang out making homemade rice krispies treats. I recently came across a recipe for a more adult version, with Bourbon as a main ingredient, with brown butter to add some unexpected nuttiness, and I knew I just had to try my hand at them. They're pretty simple to make, and with the added sea salt flakes on top, they are pure heaven. Recipe can be found here.

 


Because I totally failed at molding them and then cutting them into perfect squares, I just took a big hunk and shaped a heart out of it instead, and I think it looks pretty good! And just so you're aware, I ate the whole thing in a matter of seconds :)
