Chocolate Studded Marshmallows
I used the recipe from Smitten Kitchen because I have always had good luck every time I have made something from this amazing blog. The only thing I changed, I wanted to put the chocolate for the smore into the marshmallow. Because how amazing does it sound to have a roasted marshmallow with warm, gooey, oozy chocolate in it? Just squish it between two graham crackers and that's all you need!
What I did was make a double recipe poured half of the marshmallow goo into the pan, sprinkled 3/4 of a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips on top, added the other half of marshmallow goo, and then sprinkled the remaining 1/4 bag of chips then took a knife and swirled it through the goo to mix the chips in a bit.
Now I haven't had the chance to roast one of these bad boys yet. I am slightly concerned that some of the chips on the side or surface will melt and just drip off, but even if that does happen, there will be more inside getting melty and warm. I can't wait to try this!!! I'll post pictures and tell you how they were roasted over a fire when we try it this Saturday night.
Edited to add... I couldn't wait for the bonfire so I stove roasted one the next day. The chocolate didn't drip, but my only complaint is that the marshmallow got a bit droopy as it roasted. I wish it had stayed a bit firmer because it wanted to slide off the fork. Wonder if adding more gelatin would help with that or not? The taste though... hands down the best roasted marshmallow I have EVER eaten!!!!
