Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

This recipe, if you can even call it a recipe, almost didn't make it to the pages of Espresso and Cream. I got to dipping marshmallows in chocolate one night to satisfy a sweet tooth craving, never really thinking of sharing the idea with anyone else, but when J. arrived at my apartment last week his enthusiastic reaction made me do a double take. "You're going to put these on the blog, right?" he asked.

And so in the name of ease, yumminess, and practicality, I am posting chocolate covered marshmallows. Not because they're revolutionary, cutting edge, or will change your world, but because they will satisfy your sweet tooth in a majorly easy way. They also travel well and would be beautiful packed in a box and served as a gift like chocolate truffles. So here's to Wednesdays and making life a little simpler. 

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows
(Printable Recipe)
24-30 large marshmallows
8 oz. white chocolate, chopped
2 tsp. vegetable or canola oil 
Chocolate Sprinkles

*Place chopped chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high in 20 second intervals until chocolate is melted. Stir in the oil until well combined.
*Drop marshmallows, one at a time, into the melted chocolate, using a spoon or a fork to be sure marshmallow are completely covered on all sides. Lift the chocolate covered marshmallows one at a time with a fork and place on waxed paper or parchment paper. Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles while chocolate is still soft.
*Allow chocolate to harden, at least 2-3 hours. To speed up process, place in the fridge to harden. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.

Happy Cooking!

Been craving these for so long! One question though, why is the oil needed?

Sammy -

I have always found that just a little bit of oil helps to keep the chocolate melted and smooth while you dip the marshmallows. Of course, you could probably get away without it. Just seems to be my little tendency!
