The world is full of billion-dollar ideas I can’t believe I didn’t think of first, like Spanx, Instant Pots, and Harry Potter. Now the geniuses over at Delish have posted a video showing how to make Rolo-stuffed toasted marshmallows that is making everyone say, “Why didn’t I think of that?” and also “I need to go light something on fire so I can try this out right away.”

Most of us have probably toasted a marshmallow at some point in our lives — it’s practically a summer rite of passage. And most of us have also probably slid that hot marshmallow onto a square of Hershey’s chocolate on a graham cracker. But somehow it never occurred to me that if you can pair a piece of chocolate with a toasted marshmallow, you can pair other candies too.

A Rolo is a piece of chewy caramel covered in milk chocolate, and it’s just about the perfect size to fit inside a large marshmallow. Delish’s video shows that it’s pretty easy: Just open up a marshmallow, stuff a Rolo inside it, skewer the whole thing together, then put it over the fire until it gets hot, crispy, and melty.

“When you stuff a Rolo into a marshmallow, you’ll forget all about s’mores,” Delish said. But my first thought was that we should use this trick to level up all our s’mores. All you need is a pair of graham crackers to sandwich around the Rolo-stuffed marshmallow and you’ll have a s’more with marshmallow, chocolate, graham cracker, and caramel.

The only way we could possibly make this better was if we managed to crush some nuts in there, because then it would really be rocky road ice cream on a stick.

I might not have come up with the idea for Rolo-stuffed marshmallows on my own, but now I’m working overtime trying to think of new ways to implement this. If we can toast Rolos inside marshmallows, what else could we put in there? Milk Duds? Mini peanut butter cups? Raisinettes? Clearly this is going to require a lot more experimentation.

What else should we try stuffing in toasted marshmallows?
