    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)
