If you didn’t quite get your fill of dipping apples in caramel for Halloween, you will be delighted to see these elegant Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Marshmallows from One Charming Party. The simplicity of preparation meets the richness of buttery caramel dipped marshmallows, swathed in melted chocolate, resting on a bed of crushed candy canes. I know what I want to see peeking out of my Christmas stocking. Ah, but I don’t think I can wait that long! Even my little “elves” will be able to make these tempting treats with me, that are promised to be “easier to make than they look and…taste so yummy.” I can just imagine swirling them in coffee, hot chocolate, or, in all reality, eating them straight from the stick! I’m making my list, checking it twice, and going to the store for marshmallows and spice.
Chocolate Dipped Caramel Dipped Marshmallows Recipe
Ingredients: regular sized marshmallows, caramel (homemade or pre-bought), chocolate, crushed candy canes (optional), sucker sticks
Directions: Make or melt your caramel. I use a double boiler on the stove top to melt caramel. While you are waiting for the caramel to melt, stick a sucker stick into the marshmallows. Set out a sheet of parchment or wax paper or the new non-stick aluminum foil. Once the caramel is melted dip each marshmallow into the caramel, covering completely. Place each dipped marshmallow onto the parchment or whatever you’re using. Allow the caramel marshmallows to cool completely. You can crush your candy canes now, if you haven’t already. Once cooled (this can take up to a half an hour) melt the chocolate. You can do this in a double boiler on the stove top or in the microwave. Dip each marshmallow into the chocolate 2/3 of the way then immediately roll the ends in crushed candy canes. Let cool on the parchment, wax paper or non-stick aluminum foil.
