Circus Bark

Circus bark is a type of grilled sausage with yellow mustard and salt. It’s made in Germany, but you can find it at restaurants all around the world. The ingredient list is short; some say that the flavor doesn’t need any help from other spices or seasonings because the flavors are already there on their own.

“Best marshmallows for s’mores” is a blog post about the best way to make and use your own homemade marshmallows. Read more in detail here: best marshmallows for s’mores.

Graham crackers, pretzels, peanuts, toffee, popcorn, chocolate, and toasted marshmallows are used to make this circus bark. You can’t possibly consume just one!

So, this is probably the most enjoyable thing I’ve ever created on. Take a peek at these! They seem to be cheerful morsels of goodness. And they taste like… well, it’s one of those things where you notice something (ooh, peanuts! ), then notice something else (ah, but that marshmallow…), and before you know it, you’ve consumed a fourth of the batch and have melted chocolate all over your face.

It’s not like that ever occurred to me.

I couldn’t think of a title for them, so I resorted to social media to name them, claiming that the greatest name was the one I gave Broma. The replies were both amusing and inventive! Some of my personal favorites are:

…and the list continues on and on. There were a total of 140 names to chose from. Multiple individuals offered Circus Bark in various forms: Circus Squares, Circus S’mores, and so on. It was a sign to me!

Hearing everyone’s opinions was a lot of fun for me. Thank you to everyone who left a remark. You’ve all brightened my day!

Who saw the Super Bowl the other night?! We held a get-together in our home. “BYOB and Sarah will prepare dinner,” Alex said in his text. So I prepared this Circus Bark, as well as buffalo chicken dip, artichoke dip, handmade pizzas, loaded beef nachos, guinness chocolate cupcakes with icing footballs on top, and guinness chocolate cupcakes with frosting footballs on top.

I have to confess, when there’s food involved, I like hosting get-togethers. There’s something wonderful to me about planning a dinner, cooking it all day, and then sharing it with people.

And it was an exceptionally enjoyable evening since the Patriots triumphed! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes

Now let’s go back to this bark. It’s quite addictive. You think you’ll be able to stop at one, but you can’t. You have a hankering for just a smidgeon more, and the rest is history.

It’s quite simple to prepare and can be made with any ingredients you have on hand. It’s ideal for a post-lunch snack or a movie night in.

It’s difficult to mention the name without feeling warm and fuzzy inside.

And what about the sweet, salty, and chocolaty flavors? Swoon.

I hope you enjoy yourselves!

  • Time allotted: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • graham crackers (about 15)
  • 40 salted tiny pretzels
  • 1 cup popcorn (popped)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped roasted and salted peanuts
  • 1 cup room temperature unsalted butter
  • 1 pound of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • dark chocolate, 4 oz., coarsely chopped
  • tiny marshmallows, 1/2 cup

Instructions

  1. Arrange graham crackers in a single layer on a large baking sheet coated with parchment paper. Sprinkle with popcorn and chopped peanuts, then top with rows of salted pretzels. Remove from the equation.
  2. Combine room temperature butter, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan. Allow to cook for 8-10 minutes over medium-high heat. Every minute or so, alternate using a spatula and stirring the saucepan to mix the toffee. * When your toffee is a medium golden brown hue, comparable to caramel, it’s done. Remove from heat immediately and gently pour over the graham cracker chunk.
  3. Place dark chocolate and micro marshmallows on top of everything and broil for 30 seconds over high heat—any longer and the marshmallows will burn. Allow 30 minutes for the bark to cool fully after removing it from the fire.

Notes

*It’s perfectly OK if the butter and sugar separate at first! The granules will melt after 3-4 minutes, and the sugar will begin to melt into the butter. The mixture should be homogeneous after 5 minutes of heating.
