HOW DID I MAKE THOSE YUMMY MARSHMALLOWS?

believe or not...i don't eat any of my marshmallows...why you ask?...well i hope your sitting down...but the answer is...I HATE CHOCOLATE!...that's right...so say what you want about me!...it's nothing i haven't heard already!...lol...although fyi...i'm the normal one and everyone else is weird!....hee hee...


these are so simple to make!...here's what i do...i love using the candy melt that's already in a tray...but using the wilton candy melts would be fine as well...i find these in the baking section...you can get either choco or vanilla...

this one's from target...

and this ones' food lion...

i switch off using the chocolate and the vanilla types...both are huge hits!...now...you'll need the large (normal) size marshmallows...the plain are awesome...but when i can find the strawberry type...i jump on those!...if using the candy melt trays...you can get about 2 bags from one tray package...that's about 75 to 100 marshmallows...

i first put a couple of pieces of wax paper on the counter...then i melt choco in microwave...i do 2 minutes at 50% first time...then i go in 1 minute increments at 50% until melted...be really careful not to overheat and scorch!...then i take a marshmallow and dip the bottom in the choco...let alot of the excess drip off...and put on the wax paper...continue until either you run out of marshmallows or run out of choco...to do the drizzles over the top...i put a little bit of the melted chocolate into a plastic baggie...snip a tiny...and i mean tiny bit off the corner...and use like a piping bag...if using the wilton candy melts (chips)...i just put a little handful of the unmelted chips in a baggie...put in the micro until melted...and do the same thing...and that's it!...just let the choco harden...which isn't long at all!...and there you go!...some gourmet goodies!...

for packaging...this was a plastic jar that i got at target...but i've picked 'em up at walmart before too...or...just put in the cello goodie bags!...

enjoy!...
