S'mores Marshmallow Pops

Total Time:
20 mins
 
Once again we are tempering the chocolate using the seeding method.  When torching the marshmallows, use the lowest flame setting you can, not letting the flame stay on one spot on the marshmallows (they'll catch on fire quickly) and be ready to quickly blow out the inevitable flare up on the marshmallows.  Just like over the campfire, there is a gentle art to perfectly singeing the marshmallows.

Ingredients

  • Dark Chocolate , finely chopped
  • Marshmallows
  • Graham Crackers , finely chopped

Other things needed:

  • Scale
  • Bain Marie
  • Thermometer
  • Sticks for pops
  • Torch

Directions

  1. Temper the chocolate. Weigh out a large portion of the chopped chocolate.  Weigh out  another portion which is 25% the weight of the first. Add larger amount to a pan in a bain marie and gently heat the chocolate until it reaches 120°F. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the second portion of chocolate and stir until the temperature drops to 85°F (should take about 10-15 min.) Test the chocolate's temper-Dip one side of a small strip of parchment into the chocolate, then set aside to cool and harden.  After about 5 minutes you'll be able to tell if the chocolate is properly tempered or if there is a grittiness or bloom (looks streaky).
  3. Keep chocolate at a good working temp., between 85°F and not exceeding 89°F by occasionally placing chocolate on bain marie to gently raise temperature for a minute or so.
  4. Have chopped graham crackers set aside in a bowl.
  5. By hand, dip the marshmallows halfway into the tempered chocolate. Pull it out of the chocolate, letting the excess drip off, then skewer the marshmallow from the chocolate end, leaving the bare part of the marshmallow exposed at the top.  Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs, then set topside down to allow the chocolate to set.
  6. When ready to pass out the s'mores, light your torch and set it to its lowest setting. Gently torch the exposed marshmallow by waving the flame across the surface. Quickly blow out any flare-ups on the marshmallows.  Serve immediately.
