The Sugar Mommas are obsessed with marshmallows. We like marshmallow anything, anytime, anywhere. Spongy, chewy, stretchy deliciousness. Chocolate covered marshmallows are just one step further towards glutton heaven. This treat is simple, quick, and a crowd pleaser. Warning: the LOVE Pops may get eaten before Valentine’s Day.
You will need:
BIG marshmallows, 12 oz. Chocolate (semi-sweet or milk), 12 oz. White Chocolate, Decorating Sugars and/or Decoratifs ?, Parchment Paper, Baking Sheet, Teaspoons (1-2), Popsicle Sticks 6”, Pastry Brush
Set a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Have all of your tools ready: spoons, Popsicle sticks, pastry brush and sprinkles (caps off). Lay your desired amount of marshmallows on the baking sheet. Place a Popsicle stick in the top of each marshmallow so it’s ready to be dipped. This will be your assembly station. Set aside.
Place 6 oz. of either chocolate in a medium size glass bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds on 30% power. Remove carefully (bowl may be hot). Stir chocolate. Repeat process until chocolate is melted. (I like to work in batches so I do two batches of 6 oz. each).
While the chocolate is hot, quickly dip the Popsicle stick marshmallow inside to coat. Scrape off any excess from the bottom on the side of the bowl. Place the Marshmallow Pop on the baking sheet to cool. Use a pastry brush if necessary – dip brush into chocolate and brush over any barren marshmallow spots. Sprinkle with your favorite Decorating Sugar or Decoratif! ? We like to use India Tree because their sugar crystals are big with bold colors. www.indiatree.com
Change it up
Repeat the process with the other chocolate, if desired. It’s nice to have coordinating colors in case your recipient has a chocolate preference. Place the baking sheet in the fridge for one hour to set.
Eat, package, share!
A Note About Marshmallows
We like to make our own marshmallows, BUT, if you’re in a carpool crunch, we suggest popping on over to Whole Foods or some other specialty grocer where you can get hand crafted marshmallows. The big square marshmallows look homemade. Make sure to dust off any excess cornstarch by tapping the marshmallow on the parchment paper a few times. Jet Puffed Marshmallows won’t have this issue.
SASS IT UP!
Use flavored marshmallows like strawberry!
