Stir then heat on medium. Keep a candy, instant, or laser thermometer nearby. Cook to 245 F. Check on it occasionally; it will take at least 10 minutes. Honey boils, and sugar can burn.

Pour hot sugar liquid into a stand mixer bowl, wait 30 seconds, and add gelatin. Whip on low with the whisk. Whip on medium high until marshmallow mix is thick and fluffy.

I use 2-4 drops of each food coloring for a light mint. Whip until marshmallow mixture pulls away. Prepare a 13x9-inch cake pan with oil. Heat chocolate in 30-second increments in the microwave.

Stop when mostly melted. Make it liquid by stirring. Pour half the mallow mix into the oiled pan when ready. Place small piles of half the chocolate on the marshmallow's bottom.

Pour more marshmallow mix on top, then chocolate. With a toothpick or offset spatula, stir the mixture. Leave foil-covered in the fridge for 2 hours.
