These were a creation for my son’s birthday. He’s 4 and loves marshmallows. So I tried to figure out a way to incorporate that into his birthday cake. I blended marshmallows into the cake batter. Then I melted marshmallows and chocolate chips to use in place of icing. We served these with vanilla ice cream, and it seemed to be a hit!
