This marshmallow dip is simple to make, has a light and fluffy texture, and it makes a great combo when paired with biscuits, crackers, ladyfingers, or what have you. Continue reading to get the recipe, and then some more to see the selection of movies I got for you and your low key Friday.
I’ve been drooling over different sweet dips on Pinterest lately, unable do just decide which will be the first for me to try. They all looked delicious, all seemed simple, which ultimately made my choosing hard. But, there’s just something about marshmallows. They’re just so fluffy!
However, I couldn’t find just the marshmallows, no one’s importing any in Macedonia, but I did find something. These Munchmallow treats, which taste delicious, did a pretty great job. Basically, it’s about a marshmallow covered with thin layer of cocoa topping. So I removed the cocoa layer, it’s not hard at all, from each munchmallow treat, it took me not more than 5 minutes, and I had my marshmallow fluff. Head below to see the list of ingredients and the how-to-s.
Marshmallow Dip // What-s.
– 200 gr. Cream Cheese;
– around 100 gr. Marshmallows;
– 1 Cup Powdered Sugar;
– 1/2 Cup Whipping Cream;
– 1/2 Cocoa Powder;
– Coconut Milk (optional);
Marshmallow Dip // How-To-s.
1. Start by mixing half of the cream cheese, the marshmallows and half of the powdered sugar (1/2 cup) for a few minutes. Once everything’s nicely mixed, put the bowl aside.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the powdered sugar (so, the other 1/2 cup) and the whipping cream (1/2 cup) for several minutes until you get your mixture fluffy. Set aside.
3. Mix the rest of the cream cheese (100 gr) with cocoa powder. If your mixture is too dense, add around 2-3 tablespoons coconut milk and mix it some more. Then add it to the fluffy whipped cream mixture (number 2), and mix this again.
4. Put in serving bowls, assemble some biscuits, crackers and whatnot and serve.
1. Hot Pursuit – 2015.
Action, Comedy, Crime // 1 hour 30 minutes
I absolutely love Sofia Vergara. Man, who doesn’t? She’s stunning, she’s funny, she has an accent. Until earlier this week, I had never actually seen her in a movie. I’ve seen modern family and I love them all. I’ve watched probably the biggest part of her with Ellen on Ellen’s Show (das Bombshell). Never in a movie. So, I caught it on TV, it’s called Hot Pursuit and it’s hilarious. She’s playing this widow (her husband was involved with drugs), and after shit going sideways, she’s on the run with a by-the-book cop (portrayed by Reese Witherspoon). It’s nothing too complicated, it’s an easy breezy comedy for an easy breezy evening.
2. Cafe de Flore – 2011.
Drama, Romance – 2 hours
I have to be honest here, this is not an easy breezy movie. It’s amazing, seriously, yes. Not an easy one, tough, definitely. Jean-Marc Valee simultaneously shows two different types of love – between a man and a woman, and between a mother and a son. I’ve seen it several years ago. Actually, Maria saw it first and then we were talking about it, I said I was gonna see it, and she said “Very, very good movie. Amazing. It’s gonna make you question things, tough.” I want to say more, but then I don’t want to say more. Cause I don’t wanna spoil it. I highly recommend this one, really.
3. Factory Girl – 2006
Biography, Drama – 1 hour 30 minutes
This movie portrays the life of Eddie Sedgwick (played by Sienna Miller), focusing mostly on the period she spent with Andy Warhol (Guy Pierce) to her late days. The filming they did, the parties, bunch of artist changing the culture, leaving marks behind. The movie illustrated her as a genuinely kind and close-to naively trusting person, with such a great energy. It’s a shame things didn’t work out for her. It’s an excellent movie, I’ve seen it at least 3 times. It’s a must.
