Here's what I came up with:
These are super simple to make, and always a huge hit.
What You Need
Large marshmallows (I usually buy the Jet Puffed brand - the store brand ones seem to stick together more)
Melting Chocolate in your desired color (chocolate chips work well too)
Your decorations of choice (ie. sprinkles, ribbon, etc.)
1. Stick the lollipop sticks into as many of the marshmallows as you are using, and set out on wax paper.
2. Melt your chocolate. You can use a double boiler on the stove, stirring constantly, or do it the easy way and use the microwave. Either way, the key is to stir, and not let it get too hot, as it will get thick and unmanagable. If microwaving, do so in 30 second intervals, sitrring every 30 seconds.
3. Dip your marshmallows in the chocolate, coating the marshmallow. Use a spoon to smooth, or run the sides along the side of your bowl to remove any excess.
4. If desired add sprinkes after each dip, because the chocolate hardens fairly quickly (if using chocolate chips, it takes a little longer).
I added a green ribbon for the stem. I really like how they turned out, but I felt like they still needed something. I checked my pantry and came up with chocolate chips and toothpicks.
Adding the jack-o-lantern faces was not as easy as I thought it would be, but I'm pleased with the results. I hope the kids like them too!
Happy (almost) Halloween!
