chocolate covered marshmallows


It might be a stretch to consider this a RECIPE. But it is an idea. And it was a big hit at the school Valentine's party - especially with the moms! So, I thought I'd share! This takes no time at all. I had 10 minutes between everything else to get something made for the party, and this is what I came up with.

jumbo marshmallows (I used strawberry flavored)
stick pretzels
6 oz. chocolate (I used white chocolate)
1 Tbsp. shortening
colored sugar or sprinkles

Stick pretzels into the end of each marshmallow and put on a plate. Put chocolate and shortening in a small bowl and microwave on 70% power for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Using the pretzel as a handle, dip one marshmallow into chocolate. (You don't need to cover the whole thing.) Immediately sprinkle with colored sugar or sprinkles. Repeat with remaining marshmallows. Let chocolate harden and then serve.

What a cute idea! I often dip marshmallows into melted chocolate and decorate them but I never thought about using pretzel sticks for the handles! Great idea!
