Fresh Fall Favorites :: Pumpkin Spice Marshmallow Cappuccino


Recently Christopher Robin and I ventured down the baking isle in search of some marshmallows so that I could pinch a few pennies by making homemade cereal bars for him to take to work.  While browsing I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows on the shelf.  I had no idea!  Once I had picked them up and inhaled their sweet scent I proceeded to cling to the bag like a toddler with a new teddy bear!  Hoping that with each new sniff it would awaken a master plan of why I required them immediately!  Out of --what I believe to be-- sheer embarrassment on my husbands part, he snatched the bag out of my hands and tossed them into the cart.  I honestly believe he could no longer bare the stares of random strangers while being dubbed "the guy with the crazy, blue haired, bag sniffing wife!" HA!

Once home I refused to win by default  (I do have some pride people) and began manically picking my brain for ways to incorporate these little lovelies into something Christopher Robin wouldn't see as a complete waste of good cabinet space.  Then it hit me!  Pumpkin Spice Cappuccinos!

You see, if you have ever made a cappuccino you know just how much drama comes from trying to create the perfect bellowing cloud of milky foam, but with my new secret ingredient it's all too simple!  Let's do this!

What you will need:


Espresso or Strong Coffee
Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows
Heavy Cream
Bit of Sugar
Pinch of Cinnamon
Touch of nutmeg

You will also require a toothpick but this will be later and is optional.

Start by melting your marshmallows on low heat while gently adding in your cream.  Once your mixture has reached a nice frothy texture you can add your little bits of nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar for added flavor.

Once you are happy with your foam poor your coffee into a cup filling about half way.  Next poor you frothy mixture on top.  What is so lovely about this is that your foam mixture sits so effortlessly on top of the coffee.  No fuss!


You can choose to add a design, as I did, for some added smile insurance.  Using that toothpick we talked about earlier, poke into one of the marshmallows (did I mention they are shaped like little pumpkins?) and dip into a bit of the cream.  Tap off excess before placing into cinnamon.  Stamp your pumpkin onto your foam and proceed in adding any little extras such as "yum" by using your toothpick point as a pencil using the same method.


Serve with your favorite dessert like these Gourmet Tookies Marshmallows (Christopher Robin's new favorite) and a stick of cinnamon.  Sure to have your guests praising your efforts while you mentally pat yourself on the back for creating a drink, that usually educes frustration, with absolute ease!

Love & Lollies...

    1. Thanks Angie! This wouldn't be the best recipe for you then... it's a pretty intense coffee drink. More for addicts like me! haha I was thinking it would be delicious with hot cocoa in replacement though! xo
