That's right. It's a stuffed marshmallow on a stick. Dipped in chocolate. I'm still trying to figure out how it took me this long to think of these. Is it normal to dream up recipes in your sleep? I totally dreamed up this recipe in my sleep.
Stuffed Chocolate-Dipped Marshmallows on a Stick
-Jumbo campfire marshmallows
-Wooden popsicle sticks
-High quality solid milk chocolate bar, like Lindt (not the kind with creamy filling). A 4 oz bar will cover about 4 of these jumbo pops
Plus your filling ingredients:
-Crushed Oreos for an Oreo stuffed variation
-Honey Graham goldfish for a S'more variation
-Crushed graham cracker crumbs for sprinkling
First, set out all your jumbo mallows and cut a conical hole in the top. If you have stuffed cupcakes before, it's the same method. Basically just use a sharp knife to cut up a chunk of mallow and set it aside. Cut the pointy part off the end so you just have a little round piece left to use as the "stopper". Look at my mallow on the right if you're confused:
Dip each popsicle stick into a little bit of chocolate and insert one into the bottom of each stuffed mallow. You may hit some of your stuffing but don't worry about it; just try to wedge the stick in there nice and good, and hold the top down tightly while you push. Place pops on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for 20 minutes.
Remove your pops from the freezer and allow them to sit for a couple minutes. (You don't want them to be too cold, or the chocolate will freeze to them immediately and you won't get a smooth chocolate coat). Re-melt your dipping chocolate for about 30 seconds in the microwave at 50% power if it has thickened at all.
Carefully spoon chocolate over all sides of your marshmallow pop and allow excess to drip off. This can be a bit tricky since you can't really turn the pops upside down without the stuffing falling out, but stick with it. They won't turn out perfectly, but they will be yummy, so don't worry about it. Just get some chocolate on there. After dipping, place each pop back on the parchment lined sheet, and sprinkle with toppings if desired. Move to freezer for 10-15 minutes or until set.
