Finally, the day has come! After the last five recipes and playing with different ingredients like strawberries, blueberries, cheese and that sort of thing, the time has come to go back to my old friend – chocolate! And if you take into consideration that the name of my blog is “OMG Chocolate Desserts”, and that for a month, there was no recipe or post with chocolate, the only thing I can say is: “Sorry, my sweet dark friend” 🙂
But, I must be completely honest. Maybe, even today, there would be a post about a sweet dessert with fresh fruit had I not found a fantastic recipe for Dark Chocolate Caramallows a few days ago. Just imagine, caramel, chocolate and marshmallows at the same place and all that in only six minutes for some beautiful sweets! Unbelievable! It came to my mind in an instant that my picky son Marco likes only this kind of sweets and the decision was already made!
Of course, the six minutes was “mission impossible” for me since there is no recipe that I will not make complicated. This time, it was the caramel, which I decided to cook on the stove instead of the microwave. And so, the miraculous six minutes quickly became half an hour, and half an hour quickly became an hour while the caramel cooled in the fridge.
“OMG, things are already starting to go out of control” I thought while I was waiting for the caramels to cool down. But as soon as I got them out, all my troubles were over. The color and the softness of the caramel was just what I wanted and the taste was simply divine!
And then, finally, my old friend chocolate was next . Fully melted, it was waiting for the little yellow caramel balls with marshmallow to be deeped into it .
And so, after a little more time and another cooling, they were served and waiting to be approached .
“Marcooo, come and try something that mom made for you” I invited my picky son.
Marco ran to me and looked eye to eye at the sweet little Chocolate Caramallows . And then, after a little touching and rolling on the table, he took a bite of one, and immediately after the first, he took a second.
There was no doubt any more, the Chocolate Caramallows were really great! I didn’t even have to try them to know. The stains on my son’s mouth spoke more than any word 🙂
