About this recipe: Perfect for children's birthday parties or a fun food gift at Christmas time or on Valentine's day. Large marshmallows are dipped in chocolate and cooled until firm. Decorate with coloured sugar, sprinkles, chopped nuts or whatever sweets you like.
I love making these! I don't like to use chocolate chips - as the liquid firms up too quickly. Chocolate chips have an added agent in them to keep its shape - I use regular melting chocolate instead which melts to a thinner consistency and remains "wetter" longer than melted chocolate chips. I dip the marshmallows 1/2 way in the chocolate and then sprinkle them with rainbow sprinkles. It is always a big hit! Sometimes I also add some pink marshmallows. - 17 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I just made these for my daughter to take to a party ( 10 year olds girls night). I used pretzels for the sticks and dipped the chocolate in crushed Butterfingers for a totally edible treat! - 25 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
What could be better than chocolate and marshmallows! Fairly easy recipe, I did need to add a little shortening to my chocolate chips because they weren't wanting to melt smoothly. I only dipped half the marshmallow into the chocolate and found that the 2 cups of melted chips was plenty to dip the whole bag of marshmallows. I also sprinkled the end of each marshmellows with colored sprinkles. Fun and yummy! - 26 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
