Hello, 5 Minutes for Mom Readers! This is Sarah from Bombshell Bling, and I am excited to share with you today a recipe for Valentine’s Day Marshmallow Dippers. Marshmallow Dippers are one of my favorite treats to make for holidays and parties because they look cutesy and impressive, but they are simple enough for your little ones to help make!
Here are some of the marshmallow dipper variations that we have made in the past:
For this recipe you will need the following:
* wax paper
* cute straws (These straws are from Oriental Trading Co, but I also see lots of cute straws at places like Target, Scrapbooking or Craft Supply stores, or party supply stores.)
* marshmallows (I love using the jumbo puff ones that are meant for toasting over a fire. Lots of surface area to dip.)
* red and pink candy melts (Found at craft supply or food specialty stores in the candy making / cake decorating aisle.)
Start by sticking your straws into the marshmallows. This is a great thing for kids to help with.
Next heat up the red candy melts by following the directions on the bag. (I heated up about half of the bag and had leftover candy melt.) Then dip the marshmallows into the melted red candies until the candy covers most of the marshmallow. Allow some of the excess candy melt to drip off (you could even wipe it a bit on the side of the bowl), and then place the marshmallows on the wax paper to allow the candy to cool and harden.
Once the red candy melts have cooled and hardened warm up the pink candy melts according to the directions on the bag. Repeat the dipping process, but this time only dip the marshmallow about halfway. Once again, allow them to cool and harden on the wax paper.
All done! Super duper easy, huh? And kids LOVE them, as evidenced by this sneaky little snook….
