Sometimes, you just need a treat. Something fun and sweet and quick. These little “cupcakes” are a perfect rainy day activity to do with kids, make the perfect little sweet bite and look pretty enough for a centerpiece at a spring party.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Large Marshmallows
- Thick skewers or thin dowels
- Colored dipping chocolate
- Tall glass
- Double boiler
- Wire cutters
1. Fill the bottom of your double boiler so that the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the top bowl. Pour in 1 cup of colored dipping chocolate and allow it to melt, stirring occasionally as you go.
2. Trim the pointed end of each skewer with the wire cutters.
3. Press one marshmallow onto each skewer, making sure that the wood does not pierce the top of the marshmallow.
4. Dip each marshmallow halfway into the chocolate and tap against the side to remove any excess chocolate.
5. Set the skewer marshmallow side up into the glass and allow it to cool. Repeat with each marshmallow.
6. Once the first coat is cooled, add more chips to the bowl and melt again. Re-dip the same end so that the chocolate is thicker and more “frosting” like.
7. Dust the top with sprinkles before the chocolate sets again. Allow to cool before serving.
