Marshmallows in Chocolate Sauce

Summer, BBQ, Chit-chat with friends, Grilled Chicken, Grilled Corn-Mushrooms-Panner. Yes my summer comprised of all of these soul-warming essentials. I was thinking hard of a Party Dish which can be made in 30 minutes. I quickly conjured the memory of this snack cum dessert which we had made recently for our BBQ Party. This dish was suggested by a dear one, N during one of the brainstorming sessions on the Party menu. Thanks N. Quite unique and one of its kind. Its pretty easy and would you believe takes only 5 minutes of cooking time? Luckily everyone was happy with this unique dish and we also feasted and boasted on the humbleness and simplicity of this Party dessert snack.

I dedicate this post to my dear fried J, who is the biggest Marshmallow fan I have met on the earth. She can gobble 10's to 20's of these spongy mass and be a happy soul for the entire day. I first tasted these in India at her place for a get together with friends and family.

Recipe ~ Family favorite BBQ Dessert
Serves ~ 4-6 individuals

Marshmallows - 1 Packet
Chocolate Sauce ~ Hershey's

Miscellaneous requirements: BBQ charcoal with just enough heat for wilting the Marshmallows + Wooden Skewers (Soaked in water for half an hour prior to the BBQ.

Dip around 2-3 wooden skewers in water for 1/2 hour prior to your BBQ party. Pre-planning helps a lot. I soaked mine early in the morning so that we are all set for the BBQ with the skewers.

String in the Marshmallow pieces one by one with enough space in between. Gently run them over the BBQ coal. Best suggested time for BBQ Marshmallow is once BBQ is completely done with. The heat should not be too much not too less. Once the pieces begin wilting you will notice tiny wrinkles on the Mallow surface area. Gently run some Chocolate sauce over them. Gobble up the decadent delight!

Off these White pearls go for Mad Tea Party's Indian Party Dishes. This dessert snack is not necessarily Indian, but since we are Indians and we party with friends - I would count this is in.
