Hi Lainey! I’m a Filipino too,living in Nebraska. I’m so glad I found your blog!
Hi Gladys, nice to meet you too! Is there a lot of Filipinos living in Nebraska?
Hello dear! I’m really excited to try this recipe. However, I was wondering if digestive biscuits can replace the graham crackers! In addition, do all ovens have the function of broil? Cause mine does not seem to have. Is there any other way I can toast the marshmallows by increasing the temperature?
Hi Cherie, Yes digestive biscuits should work and just put it at the highest oven temperature and keep an eye on it. 🙂
Hi I’m going to try this but I was wondering how many cupcakes you make with this recipe?
Hi Hanna, 24 cupcakes. Please let me know how it goes!
