Whenever there’s a new edible shot glass in town (aka on a blog), it’s almost impossible for me not to immediately go ahead and recreate it. I’ve done chocolate covered strawberry shot glasses, made peanut butter chocolate cups filled with alcohol, brownie shot glasses, and of course used lime rinds for watermelon jello shots. So when I first saw marshmallow shot glasses over at That’s So Michelle a few weeks ago, I knew they’d be making an appearance in my kitchen and here on my blog soon enough. Hollowed out marshmallows as receptacles for alcohol – ingenious! As I always say, another way to drink your booze and eat it too :)

I must have hit up almost every grocery store, convenience store, and specialty food store within a 20 block radius of my apartment searching for jumbo marshmallows, but to no avail. Apparently Manhattanites don’t take their s’mores as seriously as the suburban folk, so I had to deal with regular sized mallows in this case. It’s hard to make a large cavity inside the marshmallows, and since each one doesn’t hold a lot of liquid, the bigger marshmallow you can find the better! Unless of course you’d rather just eat a few more marshmallow shots to get the same amount of liquor. I chose to fill these with a mixture of marshmallow-flavored vodka, Bailey’s and chocolate syrup, and since they’re filled with liquid you have no choice to but to eat them all in one bite,. But I found that the combination of the toasted marshmallow, melted chocolate, crunchy graham cracker crumbs, and chilled alcohol all in one actually works really nicely! It’s a super fun party treat, especially for a July 4th BBQ, and requires no oven which makes them even more perfect for summer.

While hulling out the middles of marshmallows isn’t the easiest task in the world, my little strawberry huller definitely helped move the job along, but your fingers are all you really need. It takes a bit of practice (plus the trick that your finger dipped in a little water helps remedy the stickiness of the mallows), but before you know it you’ll have 20+ marshmallows shot glosses lined up and ready for dunking. I gave my mallows a light toasting thanks to my kitchen torch (LOVE when I get to use that thing!) and although this step isn’t necessary, it’s really what s’mores are all about. You just have to be careful holding the marshmallow as you toast it because you don’t want to burn your fingers, but you also don’t want to poke a hole through the marshmallow with a skewer or your cup will spring a leak. Dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with some graham cracker crumbs, it doesn’t matter what you fill them with, these may be the tastiest shot glasses yet.

This is one of those posts that doesn’t really need a strict recipe, just some general guidelines on how to assemble them and some suggestions for what to fill with. I included a rough recipe of the cocktail I filled mine with, but change the proportions, or type of liquor, based on what you have or what you like. And if you want to make these for a group including kids, just fill some of them with chocolate milk – I’m sure they’ll all still get a kick out of them. I hope you enjoy these little shooters as much as I did – they’re just too cute and too yummy!

S'Mores Marshmallow Shooters


for the marshmallows:

25 large (or Jumbo if you can find it) marshmallows
6 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs

for the filling:

1 part cup marshmallow (or cake or chocolate or plain) flavored vodka
1 part Bailey's liquor
Drizzle of chocolate syrup


Use a strawberry huller, or just your clean fingertips, to remove the insides of the marshmallows. You don't want to squeeze too deep into the marshmallow or you'll tear through to the bottom of the marshmallow. Fingers or the end of a wooden spoon dipped in a bit of water helps even out the insides and makes things less sticky. I used a paring knife to smooth off the tops of the marshmallows once I was done. If you wish, set the marshmallow on top of a heatproof mug or bottle and lightly toast with a kitchen torch.

Melt the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring between each interval, until completely smooth. Dip the tops of the hollowed marshmallows in the melted chocolate, use a toothpick to make sure the opening is cleared, and set aside on a wax paper or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs and allow to set completely. You can store these in the fridge for up to 2 days, but I recommend waiting to fill them until right before serving.

Prepare the filling in a large cup, and then use a small cup with a spout or a plastic squeeze bottle to fill the marshmallows. Serve, gobble them up in one bite, and enjoy responsibly!

    These are so adorable and would be perfect for a themed party! (I’m literally 17 and I’m planning future parties around these shooters haha). The chocolate/graham crackers look amazing. I’m probably going to make these and then just end up eating them plain. Yum! :)

    Why didn’t you toast the mallows and let them “implode” as the recipe in “The Watering Mouth” did? Is it easier if you just core them out? Awesome idea of adding chocolate and Graham frosting!

    Could you freeze the marshmallows???? it might be easier to carve out the center if it wasn’t so sticky

    How far in advance can you make these? I’d like to make them the night before a party but I’m afraid they’ll go stale…

      I think one night in advance should be fine, just keep them in an airtight container (but don’t stack them) and they should be good!

    I made this recipe, with a variation, for my cousin’s 30th birthday party and everyone loved them! Was wondering if I could post pictures of the process of me creating them? I will definitely give you credit, where credit is due!
