Chocolate-Dipped Vanilla Marshmallows for the Birthday Boy


Versions of chocolate-dipped marshmallows have been popping up all over the place, peaking around Valentine's Day. I don't know why I waited for so long to try my own version, but Mateo's fourth birthday was the perfect excuse to give them a go.

We used square-cut homemade marshmallows from this basic recipe, although you can make the pops with store-bought 'mallows as Amy has done. You could also cut them into shapes, like these beautiful hearts from Brenda.


So the method is simple: melt chocolate ( I used 85% cacao for a bitter contrast to the sweet marshmallow) and dip skewered marshmallows about halfway into the chocolate.

Stand skewers upright in water glasses to dry, or jab them into a cardboard box as I did in the photo above.

Once the chocolate has partially set (it will lose its glossy sheen), but before it is dry, add the sprinkles. This is a fun job for kids! Mateo decorated all his own marshmallow pops.


And that's it! I made these the day before the party and didn't bother to store them in an airtight container. They were fine left at room temperature until the party...and after? Well there wasn't even one remaining, so I can't tell you how long they keep.

Enjoy! For more party-planning tips and Mateo's 'Doodle Cake' check out my recap of the party on Simple Bites.

This is so cute. I want to sprinkle crushed graham crackers on them instead of sprinkles - instant s'mores!
