Our first taste of Marshmallow Pops
I talked over the plan with the kids to try something different to s'mores and they liked the sound of it. They even agreed without much of a fuss to give up their Easter chocolate for this marshmallow treat and began “shelling” chocolate eggs like good Ooompa-Loompas.
I was really pleased they were willing to give this a try and commit their chocolate. It showed me that they are starting to get a taste for food adventures.
We then placed the chocolate on the BBQ and watched the eggs melt. Stirring occasionally and being careful to avoid burning. Once melted we removed it from the BBQ and also took another tray and placed some chopped toasted hazelnuts and sprinkles, then a further tray with hand crushed biscuits (another task the kids happily helped with).
Next we gently roasted our Mashmallows over the BBQ to just at melting point on the outside.
Then we went for the fun bit and dipped them in the melted chocolate followed by biscuits and either sprinkles for the kids or chopped nuts for me. Once covered it was eaten in one go and it was delicious. We all loved it. So much so that we were all singing in happiness about this tasty treat.
Our Marshmallow Pops were so good they bought us out in song.
