How to Make Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

  1. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler. You can use any type of chocolate you’d like! Add a splash of cream if needed to make the chocolate the proper consistency. Try a variety of different chocolates to make different types of chocolate dipped marshmallows.

  2. Once the chocolate has melted, dip each marshmallow in the chocolate and cover it completely.

  3. Carefully remove each marshmallow one by one holding it a few seconds over the bowl of melted chocolate to allow any drips to fall into the bowl.

  4. Place the marshmallows on parchment-paper lined cookie sheet to dry.

  5. While the marshmallows are still wet, sprinkle with any desired topping! Try crushed nuts, pretzels, or peppermint!

  6. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 1 hour, or until the chocolate has hardened.

  7. Once the chocolate covered marshmallows have hardened, you can place them in an airtight container and store up to one month.

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows (The Easiest Christmas Treats!)

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows (The Easiest Christmas Treats!)

Ingredients

  • High-quality chocolate (I used 1 bar of dark chocolate)
  • Marshmallows (Store-bought or Homemade)
  • Pretzels, Maldon Sea Salt, or other toppings like Peppermint or SPRINKLES

Instructions

    Step 1: Melt the chocolate over a double boiler for best results. Chop or break the chocolate into sugar cube size pieces. Place in a stainless steel or non-reactive glass bowl over a pot of simmering water. Whisk until melted.

You may need to add a splash or two of cream to reach your desired consistency. You want it to look like melted chocolate from a fondue fountain.

Step 2: Dip each marshmallow in the chocolate and turn until completely covered. Remove from the chocolate, letting any excess drip back into the bowl. Place each marshmallow on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Repeat until all mallows are covered.

Step 3: Top each marshmallow with crushed pretzels and maldon sea salt (you could also try peppermint, sprinkles, or crushed nuts).

To crush the pretzels (or other toppings), place a handful into a small bag and use the back of a wooden spoon or kitchen mallet to crush.

Step 4: Pop the cookie sheet into the freezer for about tan hour to let the chocolate set. Remove and store the chocolate covered marshmallows in an air tight container (or place in glass jars to give as gifts!).
