S’mores Cupcakes w/Dandies Vegan Marshmallows!

Not too long ago I won a bag of Dandies Vegan Marshmallows from Chicago Soy Dairy  on Twitter (thanks Dan!). I wanted to make an old school fruit salad with them but alas, when they arrived they had melted together and I had one big blob of Dandies. So I stuck them in the fridge and have been contemplating what to do with them. Then it hit me – S’more cupcakes! I made a cinnamon spice cupcake, filled with marshallow, topped with chocolate and a roasted Dandy – divine!

The filling is one 10 oz. bag of Dandies and 3 tbs. of Earth Balance melted together to form a gooey mess and very carefully sticking this in a pastry bag! When the cupcakes have cooled, poke a hole with your index finger and fill the hole with the Dandies goodness!

The frosting is 1/4 cup soy creamer, 1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chips, and 2 tbs. of agave syrup melted together. I roasted a marshmallow for each cupcake too!
The recipe for the cupcakes I used is a hodge podge from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World.
3/4 cup soymilk
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbs. molasses
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tbs. cornstarch
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix milk and vinegar and let sit for a few minutes. Sift dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl wisk all wet ingredients and mix with the dry until well incorporated. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Dandies! Vegan Marshmallows

So if you follow me on Twitter then you’ll already know how excited I was a couple of days ago when I received my Dandies vegan marshmallows from VeganEssentials!  Everything I can tell you about them won’t really do them justice – you just gotta try them for yourself.

They are made by Chicago Soy Dairy, who also make the fantastic Teese. We vegans now have nothing to be envious about on the marshmallow front – these little pillows taste better than anything I’ve ever had – straight outta the bag, in a S’more, and my favorite, Rice Krispies Treats! I followed the recipe from the Kellogg’s website and subbed with Earth Balance.

Dandies are still a bit hard to procure but I highly recommend you keep your eyes out for these, not only because they are delicious but also because we need to support vegan companies like Chicago Soy Dairy. Their products rival any non-vegan versions and supporting them will secure that they will be around for a long time!
