I love holidays and I just love preparing holiday themed treats. I am world-famous for making my special holiday bark. These delicious chocolate dipped marshmallows are a perfect example of another amazing use for chocolate melts.
Chocolate melts are really super easy to work with and the treats you can create are priceless. Everyone who comes to your get together will be completely wowed by these adorable marshmallows. They are definite show stoppers.
You can decorate your chocolate with any sprinkles you like. They are equally gorgeous without any sprinkles.
Not only are these marshmallows absolutely adorable to look at, they are delicious! There is something about the combination of the chocolate with the marshmallow…. oh my yummy!
This is a really great treat to make with your children as well. You can supervise with the melting of the chocolate and then let them have fun dipping and decorating.
If you happen to use the Wilton candy melts the directions on the back are perfect. If not I will tell you the perfect directions for melting your chocolate.
In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave. Melt for one minute to start. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power. Remove and stir. Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy. Remember less is better. You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon. You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.
Red & Blue Chocolate Melts
Directions for making your marshmallows:
Once melted continue to stir your chocolate to keep it at a nice consistency for best dipping. Dip the blue side of your chocolate first. Quickly (before your chocolate starts to firm up) add your sprinkles to your chocolate. Do all of your marshmallows, dipping the blue side first and sprinkling. Put aside and allow to completely dry. Once completely dried turn and dip the red side. Quickly (before your chocolate starts to firm up) add your sprinkles to your chocolate. Now before the chocolate starts to dry insert your lollipop stick. Let sit until chocolate is completely dried.
