Virtual Vegan Potluck: One Minute Pumpkin Rocky Road Mug Cake

Welcome to another round of Virtual Vegan Potluck!
Hello all! By now you have reached the very sweet end! To get back to Veggie Don't Bite's Dark Chocolate Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Pretzel Frosting click here and to reach the very beginning of the Potluck to appetizers and all click here!

Mug of goodness.
Finally, I have obtained vegan marshmallows that do not contain corn syrup. It's a rare thing nowadays. Chicago Vegan Foods has succeeded by changing their recipe using tapioca syrup instead. Squishy and fluffy like white spherical cubes of the past, sweet flavor and spring form texture perfectly mimics old favorite. Treasured childhood desserts like Rice Krispy Treats, S'mores, and Rocky Road can now be made thanks to new salvation.
Air Puffed Classic Vanilla Flavored Dandies.
First on the list is tackling Rocky Road. A yummy concoction of ooey gooey marshmallows combined with chocolate and nuts. I found this quick, easy delicious recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie's wonderful vegan treats blog. The twist, however, involves a bit of pumpkin puree which provides moisture and autumn flare. It is barely noticeable until some fantastic pumpkin pie spice is added. Once it escapes the microwave expect marshmallow and chocolate to ooze out from mug confines, tantalizing mouth watering sight as delightful as how warm treat melts on the tongue.
