Chocolate and marshmallows are two of my favorite things. I always look forward to a holiday (not just Christmas) because I can always find a chocolate covered marshmallow in a shape representing that season (my personal favorite is the heart at Valentine’s Day, because it is probably the best way to my heart). So this year I decided to make my own. I added it into the gift baskets for my coworkers but hid my own stash for my own personal consumption. The chocolate hardens on top of the marshmallow adding a nice contrasting texture to the soft marshmallow. Since the marshmallow is only dipped in chocolate it is not overly sweet either. I loved them so much (I actually need to make more because I am running low) and I hope you enjoy them too!
12 oz of your favorite chocolate (I used dark chocolate chips)
2 bags of large marshmallows
Additional Equipment: double boiler, parchment paper, baking sheet
Place chocolate in a double boiler (or a heat proof bowl over simmering water, make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Stir the chocolate occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
Dip the marshmallow top in the melter chocolate. Allow excess chocolate to drip off the top. Then dip it in the dusting sugar. Place it on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper with the chocolate facing up. Continue until all marshmallows are dipped in chocolate and sugar. Allow to chocolate to harden. (Do not put it in the refrigerator the marshmallows will become hard.)
Pop them in your mouth and Enjoy!
