Fancy Marshmallows are kind of becoming my thing. They are easy to make and they are always a hit with the crowd.
If I have had a busy day and I didn't have time to bake or no bake something, I can whip up a few pretty marshmallows in 5 minutes flat and enjoy the oohs and aahhs from my family when I serve them.
Tonight I made a half dozen of double chocolate covered marshmallows.
This is so easy anyone and I mean anyone can make them.
You will need:
Mini Chocolate Chips
I used 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips for the first coating and 1/4 cup for the second coating.
Place 1/4 cup of chocolate chips into a small dish, set aside for a moment.
Spray a very small microwave safe dish with cooking spray. Add 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Microwave for 30 additional seconds and stir. If the chips blend smooth upon the second stirring it is ready. If not, microwave for 15 seconds and stir, repeating as needed.
Dip your marshmallows into the melted chocolate then into the mini chocolate chips. Place on a plate and repeat until you run out of marshmallows or melted chocolate.
Allow the marshmallows to rest for about 30 minutes until the chocolate has hardened. Serve with a smile, store leftovers, on the odd chance there are any, in a ziploc baggie.
