Flowerpot Muffin Recipe

Perfectly suited for children to play the major part in preparing a tea-treat, to serve on a set tea-tray for Mom on Mother’s Day.


Prep Time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

1 minute



Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 SPAR Freshline Chocolate Chocolate Chip muffin
  • 6  pink and white marshmallows
  • 25 ml  SPAR icing sugar
  • 15 ml  boiling water
  • 1 colourful sweet such as Smarties/Astro’s/JellyTots

Recipe Method

  1. Use a baller-tool or teaspoon to dig out a ball of muffin from its centre.
  2. Using kitchen scissors, snip 4 marshmallows (2 pink and 2 white) into a mug. Pour over boiling water from the kettle. Stir this until the marshmallows begin to melt. Microwave for 8-10 seconds on HIGH power. Stir to a smooth sauce.
  3. Fill the muffin cavity with some of the sauce.  Pour the remainder in a pool on the serving side-plate.
  4. Using kitchen scissors, snip off 4 slices from each of a pink and white marshmallow; squeeze one end of each slice to form a petal shape, and position them on the muffin in an overlapping fashion like a flower.
  5. Place a sweet in the centre of this flower.  Serve immediately.

Hints & Tips

We suggest that young children have the help of an adult.
If the marshmallow sauce becomes too thick before you get to use or serve it, simply give it a few seconds in the microwave to thin it down again.
