If you are looking for a yummy treat for your kids for Valentine’s Day, you might like this one – candy coated marshmallows! (My hubby ate 3 of them last night so they must be pretty good!) 😉
You will need marshmallows, paper sticks, candy melts and sprinkles or edible decorations.
Melt some candy melts in a small container according to the package directions. I melted mine in the microwave.
After the candy melts are melted, dip one end of a paper stick into the candy.
Push the stick into the middle of the marshmallow.
Submerge the marshmallow in the melted candy, turning it so it is completely covered with the candy.
Allow the excess candy to drip back into the dish and then lay the coated marshmallow on a piece of wax paper. Or if you have a piece of styrofoam, you can stick the marshmallow into the styrofoam to hold it.
Quickly, before the candy hardens, add the sprinkles or edible decorations to the marshmallow. I used gourmet white sugar…
And candy hearts.
You can also use more of the melted candy wafers to decorate by letting some strings come down from a spoon.
And there you have it! Pretty candy covered marshmallows for a fun Valentine’s Day treat! You can stick them in a block of styrofoam for serving too. Or put them into individual plastic treat bags and tie them closed with a ribbon bow. 🙂
