What did you do for Valentine’s day? Kares wanted to give treats to everyone at school, everyone at dance class, and everyone in the neighborhood. I wanted something a little different than the typical Valentine and wanted something she helped create….but not too expensive of course!
We made chocolate and sprinkled marshmallows! They were a hit.


The ingredients were simple and cheap! Marshmallows, white chocolate (only because ours had to be pink…dark or milk chocolate will be great too), sprinkles, and food coloring.

First I melted the chocolate and added the color. I used a double boiler (I don’t actually have one, so really it was a pot of boiling water with a different pot on top that held the chocolate). You can also melt it in the microwave, but the chocolate will harden after a little bit. If you have a big batch use your crockpot and the chocolate will stay melted and creamy until you are done! Then using a toothpick or I prefer a long skewer and dip the end of the marshmallow in the chocolate.

Next I put sprinkles in a shallow bowl and gently touched them with the hot chocolate on the marshmallow.

(pay no attention to the tiny feet…she helps me cook by sitting on the counter so she can reach!)

Then let them cool on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. No need to even refrigerate!

Kares had fun helping me make them and they didn’t break the bank! They were pretty easy as well. I also made them for Kailani’s birthday party i left them on a stick for her party and maybe will do them for St. Patrick’s day as well. Just change the color sprinkle and chocolate. I even saw different shaped and colored marshmallows if you want to get really fancy.
