Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Recipe - Holiday Treats



{Aisha Chowista (me) and Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Treats}

At work in various departments the holiday treat making and eating has begun. Yesterday was Chocolate dipped marshmallows with sprinkles on top. They kind of remind me of chocolate snowmen.

I think these are a great treat to make for those that are challenged in the baking area. Plus they allow for so many great opportunities to decorate. You could use them as arrangements around your house .

 

Or you could get really bougie and bust out the chocolate fountain for an interactive chocolate dipping bonanza.



Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

1 package (12 oz) Semi- Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 tbsp vegetable shortening 
1 bag of marshmallows or 1 lb of homemade marshmallows
Assorted sprinkles or nuts (optional)

Preparation
1. Line a baking tray with Aluminum foil.

2. Combine chocolate chips and shortening in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted. Make sure to stir every minute. 

3. Skewer the marshmallows and place submerge them into the melted chocolate. Rotate them until marshmallow is completely covered. Place them on baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining chocolate and marshmallows. 
NOTE: If you are going to add additional toppings make sure to add them while the chocolate is still wet.

4. Place in fridge and let cool for about 30 minutes to set the chocolate. 

Time Saving Tip: When I use the Marshmallows as both treat and decoration, I dip them in the chocolate and then skewer them onto the arrangement I am going to use, like half of an orange. ** I pre-place the orange halves on  a lined baking sheet to minimize mess.** Then I place them in the fridge. That way when they are finished cooling off. They are ready to go.
