I have caused myself to possess a strangely large amount of self control by making so many chocolate covered mini marshmallows recently.
You see, the mini pumpkins that I had made earlier this month were gone. Long gone. So I made some more. And some ghosts, too.
And I know what you’re thinking – why would you cover white marshmallows with white candy melts… aren’t the marshmallows ALREADY white??
Well, yes. Yes they are. BUT, they weren’t covered in chocolate, were they?
Everything’s better covered in chocolate.
But I digress. My point is that they’re a super easy to make snack and they look so fun. Even though I made the eyes kind of fast and they kind of look like they’re melting.
I figure that adds to the Halloweenish charm.
To get the instructions on how to make these ghosts – and the mini pumpkins, too – check out my post:
To sum it up, I dipped the mini marshmallows in melted white candy melts, let them dry on waxed paper, and when they were dry I piped on some eyes with melted dark cocoa candy melts that were in a little baggy from which I’d snipped off the corner.
But like I said, to get more details, check out the post I linked to above.
Don’t these just look deliciously cute???
I separated the marshmallows into different cupcake liners in a container and surrounded them with candy corn, both for decoration and to keep them in place.
Kind of like a super sweet bento.
