Marshmallow Mint Chocolate Fudge Pops


My kid is crazy about marshmallows. He was introduced to them at school when they made smores. I being a vegetarian, don't buy the regular marshmallows, so I get the gelatin free marshmallows in bulk whenever I get a chance. Since, I have quite a bit of marshmallow on hand right now, I decided to try out this quick microwave fudge. I wanted to cut them out into squares initially, but they were so gooey, that I found it more sensible to roll them into pops and stick a lollypop stick/ straw in them for easy holding. Chocolate and marshmallows go perfectly hand in hand, but the addition of mint acts like a refreshing breath of air! The only hitch is they need to be served as soon as they are taken out of the freezer. If you leave them out for more than 5 minutes they turn into a sticky gooey mess. So serve them chilled, unless you are like me and don't mind licking chocolate off your finger tips!

Preparation & Cooking: 2- 3 minutes      Freezing Time: 1 hour          Makes: 20 pops approx

Ingredients:

Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1 14 oz can
Bittersweet chocolate chips - ½ cup
Mint chocolate baking chips - ½ cup
Marshmallows - 2 cups
Vanilla essence - ½ teaspoon
Mixed fruit essence - 1 teaspoon
Unsalted Butter - to grease the container for freezing the pops
Lolly pop Sticks/Straws - 20

Method:

  • Take the condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl.

  • Add the two kinds of chocolate chips and the marshmallows to it.

  • Microwave it for 2 minutes on high. Take it out and give it a good stir.

  • Put it back in the microwave for another minute, then add the vanilla and mixed fruit essences and stir until it blends into a smooth paste.

  • Grease a container with unsalted butter and pour this mix into it. Freeze it for about 40 minutes.

  • Take it out and it will be cool and solidified enough to handle. Roll it into small balls and stick a lollypop stick/straw into them and put them back in the freezer for at least another 20 minutes or until they are ready to be served.
