Elevate your hot chocolate game this season with a delightful and decadent twist – chocolate-dipped marshmallows.

Before we dive into the magic of combining hot chocolate and chocolate-dipped marshmallows, let's master the art of chocolate-dipping. Choose high-quality chocolate – dark, milk, or white, depending on your preference. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water or in the microwave, stirring until smooth. Now, it's time to dip!
2. Pillowy Marshmallow
For this recipe, select your favorite marshmallows – whether store-bought or homemade. We pre-cut our marshmallows with scisors. Skewer each marshmallow with a bamboo spoon or a small fork, and dip it into the melted chocolate, ensuring even coverage. Let any excess chocolate drip off before placing the dipped marshmallow on parchment paper to set.
3. Sprinkle Magic
On your melted chocolate dash your favorite sprinkles. You can change those depending of the celebration or season.
