It’s the last week of Marshmallow Madness, and we’ve got a pretty great match-up: margarita and cookies ‘n cream.
Let’s try to classy up St. Patrick’s Day, shall we? Instead of going crazy with food dye, I used pistachios to get a natural green color and added some Guinness to the batter to really capture the spirit of the holiday.
The result is a rich, chocolate donut that’s moist and cakey, with some crunch and a bit of saltiness from the chopped pistachios. Make these mini so they’re easier to eat when you shove a handful in your mouth in a drunken stupor. And if you want to get drunk off the donuts, increase the amount of Guinness to 1/2 cup in the batter and splash some in the ganache too. And then drink the rest of the six-pack while you wait for these to bake.
Get your bracket ready, it’s March Madness! Or more appropriately, Marshmallow Madness. Instead of muffins every Monday, I’ll be doing pairs of marshmallows every week. To pick the lucky recipes, I wrote down all the ones from the book on slips of paper and drew names out of a hat.
Here’s what the fates decided. All in all, it’s a pretty great variety.
Key lime pie vs. buttered rum
Kool-Aid vs. caramel swirl
Pineapple rosemary vs. strawberry
Cookies & cream vs. margarita
So without further ado, round 1!
There is nothing I can say about these except that they are outrageously delicious and you must make them immediately and I want to eat them for the rest of my life.
