Marshmallows + Chocolate = Yummers! Chocolate dipped Marshmallows.

Nothin’ like a homemade treat to put  a smile on your face or the face of a good friend on the receiving end! I love this time of year for a few reasons… 

  1. I get to gush over my lover and no one can make fun of me!
  2. Pink is more tolerable
  3. They sell STRAWBERRY Marshmallows!
I may in fact be addicted to Strawberry Marshmallows!  I’m embarrassed to admit that I can polish off  half a bag in under 5 minutes! Gross right!  But when you dip ‘em and gussy them up a little for the holiday they are even more addicting!
I use a double boiler on the stove top when I melt Chocolate for dipping! It’s way more controlled then melting it in the microwave. I add a tablespoon of Crisco to 1 1/5 cups of Chocolate to get  a shinny glean when the chocolate dries!
Be sure to stir, stir, stir! Once the chocolate looks like a pool of  goodness that you want to drink, it’s time to dip!
Top it off it a sweet little Heart Candy and let ‘er dry!
I also dipped them in White Chocolate and used pink sprinkles! I placed then in pink and purple candy cups and used a window box to display them! Are they not cute or what!!!!
And look at how cute this is! I found  pink Egg Cartons on line at eggcartons.com! I ordered a sample of each color they offered and  my mind is spinning  with future project ideas! Easter is going to be awesome this year with these babies!
I’ve spray painted egg cartons before but it takes like three coats to almost cover the writing completely. I like this way much better and if you ever plan on making tons of treats to pass out you can order a bulk order of 25 cartons in any color!
Happy Dipping!

    I looooove strawberry marshmallows but I have to agree they can be dangerous to have in my house! I can't imagine them with chocolate or almond bark – double dangerous!

    Okay, my kids and I made chocolate dipped marshmallows last weekend and they didn't turn out nearly as cute as yours. :) They sure did taste yummy though. The egg cartons are so cute. I've never seen them before.

    Becca-
    These are darling! I too am a lover of strawberry marshmallows. Have you seen the pink, heart shaped marshmallows they have out right now? They are yummy and cute! I am thinking that I might just have to make some of these! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

    Those are such great ideas! And thanks for the egg carton info. I've seen smore recipes (similar to yours, but with a graham cracker crust base) that would be cute in cartons too. Perfect!

    I love the idea of displaying them in the egg cartons. So cute! Do you mind sharing how you ordered samples? I can't seem to find a link on their website. Thanks!
