What happens when you get a craving for something that brings back a memory and it has gluten in it? You find a way to make a gluten free version of it. I published a similar (paleo) version of this recipe a year or so ago, but when I decided to do something fun for Celiac Awareness Day 2018, I made a short, 3-ish minute video of this updated, easier version to show just how easy they are to make. (It’s on my youtube channel).
The only difference between the two recipes is the marshmallow, and the time it takes to make it. In the paleo version, the marshmallow is made from scratch and takes more time to do it. In this version, the marshmallow is easier and faster to make. And, if you prefer, you can use your favorite Gluten Free boxed cake mix, just make sure to adjust the ingredients for the filling and marshmallow, since this recipe makes 6 cakes, and the boxed mix likely makes more.
And when it comes to marshmallows, let’s face it. There’s really not a healthy one. With this recipe, each cake gets covered with what amounts to 3 Tablespoons of marshmallows. But, I look stuff like this as a treat, something I only eat occasionally, so it’s a managed, guilty pleasure! And although they taste like “more,” do yourself a favor and freeze them. That way, when the craving hits, you can satisfy it in no time!
