  1. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval. Do not overheat or chocolate will scorch.
  2. Dip the marshmallows in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper or aluminum foil, and freeze. Let marshmallows sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.

I love making these! I don't like to use chocolate chips - as the liquid firms up too quickly. Chocolate chips have an added agent in them to keep its shape - I use regular melting chocolate instead which melts to a thinner consistency and remains "wetter" longer than melted chocolate chips. I dip the marshmallows 1/2 way in the chocolate and then sprinkle them with rainbow sprinkles. It is always a big hit! Sometimes I also add some pink marshmallows.

This recipe was just ok. I made some marshmallows covered with crushed cinnamon hearts, some with coconut, and some with coloured sprinkles. If I make this recipe again, I will cover more of the marshmallow with chocolate and perhaps flavour it. The cinnamon hearts were pretty good, so I might top them all with them next time.

I just made these for my daughter to take to a party ( 10 year olds girls night). I used pretzels for the sticks and dipped the chocolate in crushed Butterfingers for a totally edible treat!

What could be better than chocolate and marshmallows! Fairly easy recipe, I did need to add a little shortening to my chocolate chips because they weren't wanting to melt smoothly. I only dipped half the marshmallow into the chocolate and found that the 2 cups of melted chips was plenty to dip the whole bag of marshmallows. I also sprinkled the end of each marshmellows with colored sprinkles. Fun and yummy!

I thought these were great! It was a little too much marshmallow for us, so I cut them in half. I melted chocolate bark in the microwave (stirring every 30 seconds) and dipped the marshmallow halves in the melted chocolate. Then into graham cracker crumbs, like Jeannette H. suggested. They were like little smore bites! We'll definitely be making them again!

My kids and I were looking for something fun to do with Kraft's new Vanilla-Caramel marshmallows. This was an incredibly simple cooking project we could all do together to make everyone happy. We doubled the recipe easily and dipped the chocolate-covered marshmallows in chopped peanuts. The kids are WAY happy and think I'm a total rockstar. All with minimal ingredients. Thanks!

Good and simple. Place the bowl of melted chocolate over a pan of simmering water to keep it at a good consistency. Using a deep Pyrex bowl to dip in worked better than my shallow double boiler. I also used the edge of a rubber spatula to even out and smooth sides and bottom of the marshmallows . . . it only takes a second. . .

Dipped in orange candy melts and chocolate- shoved a small pretzel in them and cut off some of the top- They looked like pumpkins!!!
