Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Recipe

This chocolate covered marshmallow recipe is so easy to make. Kids will love them. You can even decorate these in a variety of ways. You can sprinkle colored candy on them while the chocolate is warm for a festive appearance.

These are great for kid’s parties or a cute after school snack. A cute idea is to place a marshmallow on a wooden skewer. Have several small bowls of coconut ready. In each bowl add a few drops of food color and stir their coconut around until colored. Now dip just the back and sides of the chocolate covered marshmallow into the desired colored coconut to form “Hair”.

Using a frosting pen or a pastry tube add eyes, nose and face. Stick the other end of the wooden skewer into ½ cantaloupe laying face down. Your little marshmallow people now have a personality of their own. Place these in the coldest section of your refrigerator for about 20 minutes. They are adorable and delicious and kids will love them.
