Marshmallow Chocolate Cups

Today I am posting my Baked Sunday morning tasty treat. The assignment this week was to make Marshmallow Chocolate Cups from the cookbook: Baked Explorations by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito. I strongly encourage you to purchase the cookbook, but you may also find the recipe on Baked Sunday Mornings.

The directions recommended to use really good chocolate , so I chose E. Guittard. The directions called for a mixture of semisweet and milk chocolate. 

I was nervous that my marshmallow would not turn out right because my kitchen aid whisk barely touched the ingredients when it was on med high power.  My mom thought it might work if  the mixer is at full power, and she was right :) Phew crisis diverted and wallah, I had marshmallow filling. 

Since it is Easter weekend, I made mine into chocolate eggs. This was quite a fiasco. I  had a hard time getting the chocolate egg shells to remove from the mold.  It took a few tries to figure out how to cover them with chocolate. What worked the best was spooning a little chocolate on them and flipping them over on parchment paper to dry.
