Seriously up your S’mores game with these chocolate-stuffed marshmallows

August 18th, 2020

No summer is ever complete without mowing down on some delectable s’mores- preferably around a campfire.

Even if you can’t get near a fire this summer (with fire bans being widespread as things start heating up)- you can still have your s’mores and eat them too, so-to-speak.

There are many ways to make S’mores without a fire. You can bake a whole sheet of them at once in the oven, zap them in the microwave, or take the more dangerous route of trying to toast them over your stove-top burner.

While you can get around the traditional ways of crafting these delectable treats, however, one thing you can’t break away from is the gooey mess that oozes out of them when you go to take a bite.

Or, at least until now, that is.

Of all the amazing products to hit the market in 2019 (think gravity blankets and instant pot duos) we’ve gotta say that these marshmallows are the best. Well, insofar as food, at least.

May we introduce you to Stuffed Puffs – the game-changing marshmallow that’s changing S’mores forever!

How could anyone possibly improve on the classic camp food any further, you might ask? Easy- make them just a bit less messy without losing any of the gooey goodness.

That is exactly what Culinary Institue of America graduate, Michael Tierney, has done.

The young chef told Insider that he was sitting around (you guessed it) a campfire when a stroke of genius washed over him. The idea? To wrap the chocolate up inside of the marshmallow for all the goodness and half the mess.

Now, we know what you might be thinking- the mess is half the fun. And we agree, it totally is! What’s not as fun is losing most of your melted chocolate as it slips right out of the S’mores and right into the dirt. A place we’ve all been before.

Encasing the chocolate in the gooey marshmallow traps it so you get to experience a whole lot more of that heavenly campfire treat.

While Tierney’s idea came to him easily enough (and many others), he explains that the execution of it was nowhere near as simple.

In fact, it took the creative foodie over seven long years to perfect this tasty treat!

“[A marshmallow with a chocolate center] is a simple idea, but very hard to execute, which is why it hasn’t been done before. I spent seven years figuring out a truly innovative system that breaks the rules of traditional candy making. I’m so excited it’s finally here,” Tierney exclaimed about the release of his innovative new marshmallows.

Stuffed Puffs hit the store shelves last year, and if you’re wondering how they held up against the classic S’mores recipe, well – let’s just say that they were such a hit that they’re now Insta-famous!

Of course, variety is not to be left in the dust when it comes to Stuffed Puffs. In fact, S’mores lovers now have even more flavor-options to add into the mix of things.

For those chocolate lovers out there, the company also released a whole different kind of marshmallow – Chocolate-on-Chocolate!

And if you think the fun stops with summertime S’mores fests, you couldn’t be more wrong!

People are hashtagging stuffed-puffs all over Instagram with their nifty new sweet-tooth addictions, and these marshmallows are the rockstar in all of them!

Kick things up a notch with a S’mores martini on those nights you want to get a little toastier!
