The beginning of the State Fair signals the inevitable culmination of summer in Minnesota. Visitors from all over the state travel to spend one or more of their last valuable days of vacation experiencing a melange of food and entertainment. A quick check of the Minnesota State Fair food finder illustrates the wide-ranging popularity of food on a stick. Corn dogs, cotton candy, cheese or pickles, fried fruit and pork chops are just a few examples of the vast offerings. Labor Day may signal the end of the fair but the food theme can easily be carried into your own kitchen with this dessert recipe for chocolate raspberry brownie bites on a stick.

1 - 7 ounce container of Baker's dipping chocolate
