Spooky season is here, and it is for tricks and treating with your family and loved ones. What a better treat than something that is filled with chocolate, marshmallows and herbal grass jelly! That’s right, for today’s recipe we have created something super original, a mix and fusion of all your favourite sweets into a suitable dessert for the Halloween season: Grass Jelly Chocolate Bomb.
Based on the name, the main components of this dessert is obviously Grass Jelly and Chocolate Bombs. Even though they are two completely different types of eats, they have one thing in common: both work well with hot milk!
What you will need:
With Jelly Bird’s Grass Jelly already at your service, most of the ingredients listed are for our beloved Halloween themed chocolate bombs. If you’ve never heard of chocolate bombs, they basically are chocolate spheres filled with hot chocolate mix and lots of marshmallows. The magic happens when you pour hot milk into the combination, and watch as the chocolate melts and release the marshmallows into your milk.
List of ingredients:
- Herbal grass jelly
- Hot milk
- Chocolate bars: whichever brand is fine, but we recommend high quality brands
- Sphere mold: To keep up with the spirit of Halloween, why not use the custom shaped spheres!
- Hot chocolate mix
- Mini marshmallows
Now onto the next steps:
Step 1: Crush the chocolate bars into pieces, and temper them. You can put them in the oven or microwave.
Step 2: Pour your chocolate into the mold (two coats) to shape them. Let them rest for a few minutes and then remove the chocolate spheres.
Step 3: Fill the mold with hot chocolate and marshmallows. Seal them together and you’ve made a batch of chocolate bombs.
Step 4: Chop the herbal jelly in to cubed pieces.
Step 5: In a big glass, put in the grass jelly and chocolate bombs. Pour in hot milk, and watch as the bombs explode.
Now you are all set to go. The minty and chewy texture of the jelly meshes perfectly with the sweetness of the chocolate and marshmallow, creating the perfect treat for any house parties for Halloween, or for any future holidays.
Happy Halloween from us at Jelly Bird!
