I will never forget the first time that I saw a container of Marshmallow Fluff in a grocery store! I was taken aback with mixture of fascination, excitement and disbelief with a little revulsion thrown in. So this is the stuff that goes in Twinkies!!! Now I’ve eaten my fair share of Twinkies over the years but I have to be honest, I’m always mildly horrified by what’s in them. Not that it stops me from eating them, mind you.

We all have our vices, I suppose.

Something made me buy a container of that Fluff stuff so it was only a matter of time before I used it. That happened to be a few weeks ago when I was perusing my magazine pile and came across a recipe that I’d bookmarked from the November 2002 issue of Food & Wine for Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Filling.

The recipe turned out very well although some of my cupcakes didn’t have a lot of filling as I was afraid that I might actually burst my cupcakes by overfilling them. Overall, though, they were yummy and should I ever be in possession of another container of Marshmallow Fluff I’d try these again.

This is, of course, my Magazine Mondays entry. Here are some other entries for the week from people who have tackled their magazine pile!

Allison at Bake Your Heart Out made some pretty cupcakes from the February 2008 Martha Stewart magazine.

The prolific Wandering Coyote of ReTorte made an Olive & Sun-dried Tomato Spread from Clean Eating magazine.

Remember, if you post a recipe from a magazine, let me know and I’ll link to it in a Magazine Mondays post.

Have a great week, everyone!

Ciao!
