Day 19: Holiday Marshmallow Sticks

J is a very big fan of marshmallows, so I thought I would make this little treat for him. They are great enjoyed on their own, or you could dip them into a nice hot chocolate (maybe with a splash of something extra) and let them melt away!

This is such a great last minute thing to whip together, the whole process will take you less than 20 minutes plus a half hour to let the chocolate set at the end. A perfect quick and easy treat that you can wrap up nicely and give as a little Christmas gift!

Hope you enjoy them!

Holiday Marshmallow Sticks

You can make as many or as few as you want, but what fallows in instructions for 24 marshmallows. Sticks with two are 122 calories and sticks with 3 are 183 calories.

Ingredients:

  • 24 marshmallows
  • 110g dark chocolate
  • Sprinkles for decorating
  • lollipop sticks or wooden skewers

Preparation:

  1. Place two or three marshmallows on each stick/skewer, making sure the stick does not go all the way through the top marshmallow. dsc_0257
  2. In a double boiler, break up the chocolate and let it melt, stirring occasionally. dsc_0258
  3. Pour the melted chocolate onto a small plate.
    • I covered the plate with cling film first because it makes the clean up SO much easier.
  4. Prep a second plate that will be used for the sprinkles, and a line a large dish with baking paper to let the marshmallows set once decorated.
  5. Take each marshmallow stick and roll it through the chocolate making sure it is fully covered on the top and sides. You can use the edge of the plate to skim off the excess. dsc_0259
  6. Now you can either pour the sprinkles onto a dish and press the sides of the marshmallow sticks in, or you can just pour over the top of the sticks.
    • Using the pressing into dish method will give you denser coverage, which looks really nice with small sprinkles. For larger sprinkles I prefer to just pour them over so you get less coverage.
    • Remember to catch the excess on the plate below!            dsc_0260
  7. Now place the sticks onto the baking paper covered dish.                    dsc_0261
  8. Once all sticks are done, let them sit in the fridge for 30mins to an hour to let the chocolate set.

Now you can eat them and enjoy! I hope you like them as much as Jürgen does!
