    Will it BBQ? Chocolate and Candy!

    With Halloween right around the corner we wanted to see what would happen if we took some chocolate and cold smoked it. Once I got to the store though I saw some other candy and decided grab some of that as well!

    Prep Time

    5 Minutes

    Cook Time

    60 Minutes

    Ingredients

    Chocolate of your choice
    Candy of your choice

    Utensils Needed

    Amaze-N-Tube Smoker

    Instructions

    Take whatever Chocolate or other Candy you want to try to add a smoke flavor to and put it in a foil pan. Since the Chocolate and some of the Candies might melt you are better off trying to do a cold smoke. I used the Amaze-N-Tube Smoker and filled it with Hickory Pellets, I then used a propane torch to get them light and put them in our smoker with no heat. I let them sit in the smoker for an hour and kept the smoldering pellets as far away from the candy as possible.

    So, Will it BBQ?

    Some of you are going to think we are crazy for even trying this but the Reeses Peanutbutter Cups, the Hershey’s with Almonds and the Snickers all came out really tasty! Picked up a good amount of smoke but wasn’t overpowering, similar to what you get with a s’mores if you held your marshmallows over a fire. We also did Peach Rings, Gummy Bears and Candy Corns to see how they would do, really I just wanted some Candy! The peach rings were really good, they tasted a lot like a grilled peach, the Gummy Bears were alot better without the smoke and the candy corns are disgusting no matter what! We also did some gum just to see what would happen, they did not pick up much smoke and the small amount that was picked up did not add anything good to the gum.

    @doug7777 142 degrees is a stalling point where the fat starts to render. I used to get very impatient and start cranking up the heat to get the INT to go up. That usually results in burning all the fat out of the snack sticks. Be patient. The temp will eventually start to rise again. Once it does, it will continue to do so at a steady pace. I have had snack sticks in the smoker for 24 hours or better due to having 25lbs hanging at one time. I have also had 4-5 lbs at a time in the smoker only take 4-5 hours total.
