How to Make Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

Ingredients:

Large marshmallows
Chocolate chips (about a cup)
Festive paper straws
Candy canes

Directions:

  • Place the marshmallows onto the paper straws.
  • Crush the candy-canes into small bits. I like to use a plastic zipper bag and then place the bag in a dish towel and hammer the candy canes with a food mallet. This activity is perfect for unwinding at the end of a long work day, sorry not sorry, bwah! Set the candy cane pieces aside in a small bowl.
  • In a small bowl microwave the chocolate chips, stirring every 30 seconds until they’re just melted.
  • Dip the marshmallow about halfway into the chocolate and then immediately dip into the candy-cane pieces.
  • Set them on a tray and let chocolate cool and harden.
  • Enjoy!
