Unique Filling Ideas for Chocolates!

Woo-hoo! I did it! After nearly two weeks from my last recipe post, I am finally able to share another one with you and I am SO happy about it 🙌

I had been putting off this recipe, as simple as it is, because working with chocolate can be fickle and stressful, and I had already had some bad luck in the kitchen that day.

Nevertheless, I decided to go for it because I missed creating with food, and I wanted to further my goal of actually using all of my silicon moulds once before I bought any new ones.

Eventually, I got them right AND I was happy enough with them to share them on here – but that was AFTER I accidentally put the chocolate in the microwave for four minutes instead of one, causing me to burn the chocolate beyond recognition, melt the container I was using, *and* fill my kitchen with smoke. Yay!

I have been playing with chocolate more than usual, but I wanted to experiment with some different fillings this time around. I had covered the top of both Rice Krispies treats and bite-size fudge pieces in chocolate recently, but I was yet to completely coat every side of a filling with chocolate – until now!

I have a few more unique fillings for more chocolates in the future, so if there’s anything that you would like to see me test out, let me know in the comments and I’ll note it down for next time 👇 For now, let’s get onto the recipe!

Rick and Morty “Pickle Rick” Green Apple Marshmallows

If you’re a long timer Small Adventurer reader, you might remember when I first tried making marshmallows a little over a year ago, and how I swore I would never do it again 😂  However, I eventually changed my mind and tested another recipe for them back in February, and here I am testing a new one today!

As I said in both of those posts, Daniel and I are huge marshmallow fans (which is why they always make an appearance during July, the month of my creations being inspired by my boyfriend!) and I am determined to try every recipe that I can find online until I found my favourite one!

This time around I tried this recipe and, honestly, I’m still not super impressed. Just like the second recipe I tried, I found the texture of these far too strange and not like store bought marshmallows. They dissolved in your mouth before you could chew them!

So, I am still on the search for the perfect homemade marshmallow recipe (if you have one you like, link it below! 👇)

BUT I can still show you how to turn your homemade marshmallows into tiny Pickle Ricks, which is the main point of this post anyway!

My last Rick and Morty themed recipe were these lemon portal cheesecakes that I made last year. They have been one of my most popular posts of all time.

They even received over 9, 500 upvotes on Reddit , plus they’re one of my most re-pinned and clicked-on pins on Pinterest! So, naturally, I had to make another Rick and Morty themed creation for this year’s July challenge.

Whilst the texture wasn’t spot on with these marshmallows, the new flavour extract that I used was DELICIOUS and I cannot wait to use it again 😋 Keep on reading to find out who made it, and where to buy it from!Read More »

Fairy Bread Inspired Petit Fours

My first recipe post of the month is finally here! I do apologise for taking almost two weeks to share one 😅 I actually had the idea for this post last month, but of course life got in the way for a little while. However, I’m back now with a super fun, super delicious, and surprisingly easy recipe post that I hope know you’ll all love! ☺️

I have already posted my fair share of petit four recipes on the blog, but this one is extra special as I finally tried making poured fondant to coat them with!  Poured fondant is apparently the traditional coating for petit fours. It a lot sweeter than rolled fondant, and has a far nicer texture in my opinion. Plus, it’s a LOT easier to make homemade than rolled fondant is!

Of course, this wouldn’t be The Small Adventurer if I didn’t make my creations look like something else, so today’s tiny treats are inspired by one of my still-favourite snacks: fairy bread! With the crusts cut off, of course, just like I had as a kid 😜 Enjoy!
