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!


For the cake:
♡ 115g butter, softened
♡ 1 cup white sugar
♡ 1 + 1/2 cup flour
♡ 1 + 1/2 tsp baking powder
♡ 2 eggs
♡ 1/2 cup milk
♡ 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

“Choc Chip Cookie” Cake Pops for Something On A Stick Day

There is so much to love about chocolate chip cookies. They’re delicious, fairly easy to make – especially for a cookie – AND they are pretty much destined to be ugly, yet everyone loves them anyway 😋

This is only the second time that I have made real cake pops – which involves crumbling, mixing with frosting, chilling, etc – rather than just ball-shaped cakes and I forgot how delicious these little treats are!

The first batch I made was way back in August, when I made fairy bread inspired ones. I thought they were super cute, but I’m also loving these chocolate chip cookie ones too – and with today being the ever-so-specific holiday of Something On A Stick Day, it was a no-brainer that cake pops should make an appearance on the blog 😉

They may not be the most perfect creation to be featured here on The Small Adventurer, but as I said earlier, that’s just part of the choc chip cookie charm 😂 Now, enough blabbering, let me show you how to make these tiny treats!
