Once the chocolate was melted, I put some chocolate on the tip of a lollipop stick, and put it in the bottom of the marshmallow. This isn’t really necessary though — the marshmallows are sticky on their own and the sticks stayed in place without the chocolate attachment. Once the stick was solidly in the marshmallow, I put each side into the chocolate. Be sure to tap off the excess. Then, put sprinkles on and put in a cake pop stand. You can buy a fancy one like I have from the craft store, or use a piece of Styrofoam.
I experimented with dipping the entire marshmallow and didn’t really like the outcome. It lost the heart shape of the marshmallow. I bet this would be fine on a regular-shaped marshmallow. I’ll have to try that next time.
I have to tell you, these things are delicious. I thought I was making something cute, but they taste SO good. The combination of the chocolate and the marshmallow make for a decadent treat.
- Candy melts or other melting chocolate
- Lollipop sticks
- Place candy melts in double boiler until melted (this takes a few minutes) *Don't over heat the chocolate or it will become chalky and will be unusable.) ** An alternate method is melting the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals. I prefer the double boiler method as I feel I have more control.
- Place the tip of a lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and stick into one marshmallow. Place on cake pop stand to "set up."
- Once dry, take the marshmallow stick and dip into chocolate. There are many techniques for this, but I like doing one side at a time. Tap excess off.
- Dip marshmallow into sprinkles.
- Set on cake pop stand until hardened.
- Tips: You can dip the entire marshmallow into the chocolate to cover the entire thing or dip just part. Experiment until you find the desired result.
