TWD: Fluff-Filled Chocolate Madeleines - Toasted Marshmallow Chocolate Madeleines


Happy 1/11/11.  Just had to say that.  It's actually my Mom's birthday today and the boys that that was pretty cool, so, there you go.  :)

This post, much like these madeleines, is going to be short and sweet.  I've been stuck with the same cold on and off for weeks that we just all keep passing around here and am hoping to feel better soon.  In the meantime, honestly, attempting to put together semi-coherent sentences is more than my tired brain can handle. So. If the sentences below aren't really even semi-coherent, I hope you'll just smile and nod and let me live in my little bubble.  ;) It's like I tell my boys, sometimes you just have to humor the tired mommy.

Well... obviously, I had marshmallow fluff.  Actually, I got it with the intention of filling these chocolate madeleines for this week's TWD (picked by Margo of Effort to Deliciousness) and following the recipe exactly.  I've been waiting and waiting for this recipe's time to come and was so excited to see it slated for this month (darn colds!!).  Thanks Margo for choosing this one!

Anyway, I just ran out of time, patience, energy, etc. and bagged it.  I slacked out - even though I wanted to fill and do the chocolate glaze (I'll get to it next time!) and just slathered some fluff on top, broke out the torch and called it good.  The madeleines themselves didn't quite get that 'hump' I was hoping for, and I think mine actually ended up being a little under baked, but they were still terrifically yummy.  It is always fun to bust out the madeleine pan and making chocolate ones are our favorite.  I can only imagine I would love them just that much more dipped in chocolate.

For more fluff-filled madness (and I think I even 'heard' some others talking of other fillings!) please visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blog and check out the LYL post to see what the other bakers came up with this week.

Sorry to hear that you haven't been well. Your madeleines look fab just as they are. I didn't have time to let my batter rest, so there's no hump on mine either.

Oh my - these look fantastic, Holly. I really need to buy Dorie's books!

The toasted marshmallow madeleines look awesome, Holly! I would say underbaking the madeleines is not necessarily bad, they dry out pretty easily!

Thanks for baking with me this week!

Hellllooo, friend! I cannot BELIEVE you are still so motivated and keeping up with not only FFwD but TWD as well...impressive! I miss chatting, but I know we are all so busy.
Your madelines look incredible with the toasted marshmallow. Yum.

Oh - thanks to being bumped from flights - I now have enough airline bucks to get us out your way this year...if you really think you would want to play host! No pressure. Hehe!

Holly, the roasted Mallow, looks incredible all by itself. Then again, I love burning mine on a stick around the campfire, too. Mmmm!

They turned out great despite being ill! I have a torch but it always seems to dump the gas on the food while I am trying to torch! I think I might invest in a real one from the hardware store--and then try these!! Feel better!
