Dipping Sauce:


  1. For the jalapenos: 
  2. Combine 4 cups water and the molasses in a medium pot and bring to a boil. Add the jalapenos and cook until soft. Remove the jalapenos and let cool. Combine the mozzarella with the cream cheese and ricotta. Mix in the shallots and bacon. 
  3. Prepare a grill to 350 degrees F. 
  4. Slice the jalapenos lengthwise and carve out the seeds and stems. Stuff the cleaned out jalapenos with the cheese mixture and wrap each with 1 slice prosciutto. Grill the jalapenos, turning frequently, until the prosciutto is crispy, 5 to 8 minutes. 
  5. For the dipping sauce: Bring the sugar and wine to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the cranberries, tangerine zest, and cinnamon stick and return to a boil, stirring. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the cranberry skins pop, about 10 minutes. 
  6. Serve the poppers with the dipping sauce.
