I’m back again with yet another marshmallow recipe post for Mini Chef Monday. I wouldn’t normally make something similar to what I did last week which were these Easter Bunny Marshmallows Pops, but we’ve been having so much fun with marshmallows. I got the itch to share. Take a look at these super fun Chocolate Dipped Sundae Marshmallows and tell me you wouldn’t feel the same?
Adorable, right? Wesley LOVED this project so much!
Because Wesley has been getting some practice on the regular dipping things in chocolate, he has got the process down! (We love the flavor of Ghiradelli white chocolate chipes.)
I like using a 2 cup glass measuring cup for these projects. It works great for melting our chocolate and dipping for these smaller projects.
I wanted a fun rainbow color on these marshmallows, but wouldn’t you know that my “rainbow” sprinkles really didn’t have the colors of the rainbow at all? With several colors missing I turned to non-pariels instead.
Because whipped cream and cherries make everything more fun, we adding some to the tops of our marshmallows. Wesley absolutely loved adding all the cherries on top.
- 8 jumbo marshmallows
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon oil or shortening
- 8 maraschino cherries with stems, rinsed and dried
- whipped cream or whipped topping
- Microwave white chocolate chips and oil in glass measuring cup (for easy dipping) in 30 second intervals, stirring often, just until fully melted.
- Dip jumbo marshmallows ⅓ or ½ of the way into chocolate.
- Gently shake off excess chocolate.
- Sprinkle chocolate with sprinkles and set on baking sheet to dry.
- Store in airtight container.
- Before serving top with whipped cream and a cherry.
If you can add the whipped cream right before serving you can use a can like we did. If you need it to hold up for a bit, I recommend going with whipped topping. Whipped cream will start to melt and lose its shape fast, even if it isn’t hot.
Fun, aren’t they? They would be perfect for any special occasion including birthdays!
