The thought of chocolate marshmallow candy brings back warm and sweet memories to my heart and mind.
My mother and I both adored that delectable combination, especially when the chocolate and marshmallows were fresh. That's when they are PERFECT!
Because my dear mom has gone on to heaven, I feel a bit nostalgic (if you know what I mean) whenever I'm contemplating a chocolate marshmallow treat.
In fact, last Easter I saw some chocolate marshmallow eggs in the store and I just had to buy one to enjoy while sitting and thinking about my sweet mom and the blessing she was to my life. I think she would have liked that.
Well, enough about me! :)
One of our regular visitors and contributors (Connie Zakhary) sent me a photo this week of some gorgeous chocolate dipped marshmallows.
Connie made 300 of these mouthwatering morsels last month for her niece's wedding. Don't they look beautiful?
I reckon her niece is a pretty lucky girl, don't you?!

I asked Connie to share the details of how she made her chocolate marshmallow candy and this is what she had to say...
When making the chocolate marshmallow candy wedding favors pictured,
used vanilla flavoured Wilton's Candy Melts. I melted the chocolate in
a pan over boiling water. I then dipped one end of each marshmallow
into the melted chocolate and added different colors of sprinkles."
"I like to use colored sugar or chocolate sprinkles. Half a bag of the Candy Melts is enough to coat one bag of marshmallows."
"After all marshmallows are dipped in the chocolate and sprinkled, I place them on wax or parchment paper on a tray, refrigerate and then place in decorative paper liners."
"Another idea is to use colored Candy Melts and then decorate with coconut for contrast."
As you can see from the photos, Connie placed each marshmallow in a paper cup liner. That's great for presentation all by itself, but she took it one step further since these were made as a wedding favor.
Connie also wrapped each chocolate covered marshmallow individually in cellophane and added a pretty bow to create adorable little chocolate marshmallow wedding favors.
So, once you get the simple basics down, you can get creative and make your chocolate marshmallow candy as fancy or pretty as you like.
