I have never been a big fan of marshmallows, then Pepper came up with these Nutty Buddy Marshmallow Pops. OMG were they ever amazing. Imagine soft, crunchy and chocolaty all at the same time.
They remind me of the Nutty Buddy ice cream cones I loved as a child. She used chocolate to hold the stick in the marshmallow and that little piece of chocolate is exactly like the chocolate at the bottom of the cone. You know the one; that last delicious bite of chocolate. You won’t be able to have just one so hide them from the kids! And absolutely try them at your next dinner party… They make a fun yet very elegant dessert.
