  • 1 package (9.5 ounces) Puff Pastry Cups, prepared according to package directions
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows(about 72 mini marshmallows)
  • 24 fresh mint leaves (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest(optional)


  1. Heat the broiler. Spoon 1 teaspoon lemon curd into each pastry cup. Top each with 3 marshmallows. Place the filled pastry cups onto a baking sheet.

  2. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2 minutes or until the marshmallows are lightly browned. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes.  Top with the mint and lemon zest, if desired.
