Oct 30, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I didn't actually eat these yet, but it was very hard to resist picking on the ganache while rolling it into truffles. It smelled nice and chocolatey, with a nice warmth from the cinnamon.

These melt in your mouth, unlike store-bought marshmallows. I was completely lost during the syrup and gelatin part, but they still turned out fluffy! My syrup kept overflowing the pot, so I was scared to heat it to 240. Don't freak out when your gelatin sets too much, because the hot syrup melts it when you start whipping them together.

Has anyone ever tried stirring the batter with an electric hand mixer? Or even by hand?"

I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate, so I had to experiment with the chocolate mascarpone mixture. Figures that I used 5 tablespoons of Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder and the cupcakes were enjoyed to the very last crumb. Thanks Giada!
