Chocolate Dipped Giant Marshmallows

I have decided to move to DC.  My family and friends have been so supportive of my decision.  And my family quickly decided that they would have a list of things for me to bake one last time before I leave at the end of the month.  Ween is off from work this week before she starts teaching summer school and she suggested that we get those giant marshmallows we keep seeing everywhere, put some sticks on them, dip them in chocolate and cover them in sprinkles.  I love a chocolate covered marshmallow - and a giant one on a stick with sprinkles?!  I'm so there. 

It's been really hot and humid and when it gets like this the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven - so this is a great no bake treat.  And a great activity to do with the kids.  Away we went dipping and covering the marshmallows in chocolate and sprinkles.  I was in charge of the dipping and Ween was in charge of the sprinkles.  Let them set up in the fridge for 10 minutes and you're good to go. I will warn you, if you've never had a chocolate covered marshmallow you will be addicted, pace yourself. 

all set and ready to eat
Now the giant marshmallows do get heavy when you coat the whole thing in chocolate and they might fall off the sticks.  I suggest coating them halfway.  If you use normal size marshmallows, coating the whole thing wont be an issue. 

Chocolate Dipped Giant Marshmallows
makes one bag of marshmallows

1 bag of giant marshmallows
1 bag of Popsicle sticks
1 1/2 pounds of chocolate candy coating

  1. Take 2 cookie sheets and line them with parchment paper.  Set out marshmallows and insert 1 Popsicle stick into each marshmallow.  Melt chocolate candy coating according to directions. 
  2. Dip marshmallow into chocolate and shake off excess.  Immediately cover in sprinkles and set back on parchment paper to set.  When all the marshmallows are done, place in fridge to set for 10 minutes. 
*Note - if it's very hot and humid when you do this, keep the marshmallows in the fridge once dipped in chocolate.  They are great to eat right from the fridge and don't need time to come to room temperature to eat.
