Dress up those marshmallows!

We love using chocolate covered marshmallows on dessert tables! They are so easy and so delicious!
Take those naked marshmallows....

and dress them up!!
Of course it is super easy to just dip them into white, dark or milk chocolate and cover with colorful sprinkles that compliment your dessert table!

We used one of our cupcake flags, dipped the marshmallow in white chocolate and decorated it with pink pearlized sprinkles. Cupcake flags aren't just for cupcakes anymore!

We took this one and dipped it in melted peanut butter chips, let it dry and then dipped it again half way up with melted mik chocolate...so good!

Cookies and Cream anyone? This marshmallow was dipped in white chocolate and then rolled in crushed oreos!! We popped it in a black and white mini cupcake liner just to dress it up a bit!

This one is turtle inspired! We just melted some caramel candies (let them cool a little bit before you dip the marshmallow or it will melt) dipped the marshmallow in and let it cool, then dipped it again in milk chocolate and rolled the bottom in crushed pecans!

How could we leave out the smores inspired marshmallow! We dipped this one in milk chocolate and rolled it in crushed graham crackers! Super easy...and super delicious!

Finally, this is one of our favorite things to do for first birthdays!
Dip the marshmallow in white chocolate and let it dry, then dip the top in chocolate (or use any color you would like) and add some sprinkles and put a chocolate candle on top!

You can make a little cake or....
add a cupcake liner and you have a little cupcake!

We will show you step by step tomorrow, how to make these...they are really easy!

There are really so many possibilites for marshmallows, just use chocolate as your glue and roll them in; toasted coconut, mini m&m's, crushed chocolate chip cookies, mini chocolate chips, nuts....anything your heart desires!

Another fun idea would be to have a DIY marshmallow bar...use cake plates to display marshmallows with lolli sticks already in them and use a fondue pot to contain the melted chocolate and then put all of your toppings in separate little ramekins...so everyone can make their own dressed up marshmallow!

Combine the marshmallows and water together in a bowl, and melt them in the microwave. Add the powdered sugar, and keep stirring it in until the mixture reaches the texture of bread dough.
