Special Equipment

Toasted marshmallow strawberries are super easy to make, and it’s even easier if you use the right tools. Here’s what you will need: 

  • Microwave – used to gently melt the marshmallow fluff. This way it’s easier to dip the strawberries and get an even coating. 
  • Cooking torch – used to toast the marshmallow fluff and give it that smoky, caramelized flavor. I recommend using a butane torch or similar. 
  • Skewers – it’s much easier to stick the strawberries on a skewer before dipping them in marshmallow fluff. It’s also better for safety reasons when torching the coating. Alternatively, you can also use a regular fork.

Toasted Marshmallow Strawberries Ingredients

The beauty of this toasted marshmallow strawberries recipe is that it’s really easy to make and only needs 2 ingredients:

  • Strawberries – I recommend getting the freshest strawberries for a naturally sweet flavor. Frozen strawberries don’t work well in this recipe, as they get soggy when thawed. 
  • Marshmallow fluff – any type of fluff will work. You can mix it up and use different flavors like strawberry or caramel.

How to Make Toasted Marshmallow Strawberries

You are going to love how easy it is to make these delicious strawberries!

  1. Skewer strawberries. Stick the strawberries on skewers. 
  2. Soften marshmallow. In a medium bowl, microwave marshmallow fluff until slightly softened. 
  3. Dip strawberry. Dip each strawberry into marshmallow fluff, twisting to remove an excess. 
  4. Toast marshmallow. Using a torch, gently toast the marshmallow coating. 

Flavor Variations

This toasted marshmallow strawberries recipe is highly customizable, so you can make it according to your own taste. Here are some of my favorite flavor variations: 

  • Chocolate – dip the strawberries in melted chocolate or Nutella before dipping in marshmallow fluff
  • Strawberry fluff – for even more strawberry flavor, switch plan marshmallow fluff with strawberry flavor
  • Cinnamon – sprinkle some cinnamon powder over the toasted strawberries for a spicy kick. Only do this after toasting, as cinnamon burns very easily. 
  • Cream cheese – core the strawberries and fill with cream cheese for a tangy and creamy flavor 
  • Sauces – after toasting, you can use any of your favorite sweet sauces to top the strawberries. I recommend chocolate, caramel or strawberry sauce!

Tips & Tricks

  • Firm strawberries – Choose firm and fresh strawberries for the best flavor. Soft or overly ripe strawberries don’t hold their shape too well. 
  • Softened fluff – A few seconds in the microwave is all it takes to soften the marshmallow fluff. If used unsoftened, the fluff is too thick and doesn’t coat the toasted marshmallow strawberries evenly. 
  • Use skewers – it’s much easier to maneuver the strawberries when dipping them into marshmallow fluff when placed on a skewer. It’s also mess-free and protects your fingers when torching. 
  • Chocolate twist – if you’re feeling extra, dip the strawberries in chocolate first. Let the chocolate set completely, then dip in marshmallow fluff and toast. It’s ridiculously tasty! You can also serve with a drizzle of chocolate sauce. 
  • Turn when torching – When using a culinary torch, it’s very easy to burn the marshmallow if you keep the flame in one location for too long. To avoid this, keep turning the skewer around to toast the marshmallow evenly on all sides.

Storage and Freezing

Storage: For the best flavor and texture, I recommend eating these toasted marshmallow strawberries immediately. If you must save them, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one day.

Freezing: I do not recommend freezing these toasted marshmallow strawberries. The berries will not thaw well.
