Beer has long been a key ingredient in a savory foods, from cheesy soups to steamed mussels, but rarely has beer dipped into the sweet side. Until now. Truffle truffle, an artisan chocolatier in Chicago, recently debuted its beer marshmallows — the newest addition to the company’s “beer & pretzel”" line.

Founder and owner Nicole Greene makes every marshmallow from scratch, then dips each fluffy, square-shaped marshmallow into milk chocolate. Finally, she tops them with crunchy bits of a sweet, salty beer-and-pretzel brittle. Voila! A beer marshmallow.

Four marshmallows go for $10 and a 12-piece box will set you back $30. If you can’t get to Chicago — where truffle truffle products are sold at places like Provenance Food and Wine, Southport Grocery & Cafe, and four Foodstuffs locations — don’t fret. The marshmallows can also be ordered online. Whew.
