Marshmallows on a Stick – Easy Recipe

Not only is this an easy recipe but it is also an inexpensive one.  Candy marshmallows come in a box of nine for about two dollars.

Instructions:  First gather all the ingredients.  You will need chocolate melting chips or chocolate bark, decorating sprinkles, and marshmallow candy.  Also needed are bamboo skewers, a baking tray, wax paper, and plastic bags with wire twists.  You can buy an assortment of clear plastic bags sizes from Michaels Craft Stores.

Place the chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute.  You will only need about one fourth of a cup of chocolate wafers.  Take them out of the microwave, stir until smooth.  If lumps remain, microwave one additional minute.

In the meantime, prepare your baking sheet by putting a piece of wax paper over it to prevent sticking to the pan.

Insert a bamboo skewer into the bottom of each marshmallow tree being careful not to punch it out of the top of the tree.  Pick up one skewered tree and hold it over the melted chocolate. 

With your other hand, spoon the chocolate mixture over the marshmallow tree being careful to not totally cover the tree or to get chocolate on the skewer handle.  Sprinkle lightly with colored decorating sprinkles.

Place completed candy skewer on a wax paper lined tray.  When the tray is filled, place it in the refrigerator to set the chocolate.  When the chocolate is set it will no longer be shinny looking.

After the chocolate has set, place each candy tree skewer into a plastic bag and tie with a wire twist.  You can also tie on some colored ribbon to cover the twisted wire.

Due to the nature of the pointed bamboo skewer please do not give to young children unless supervised.  You can also cut off the sharp tip of the skewer but it will be harder to get it through the candy tree.

It only looks like you spent a lot of time and money on these easy to make treats.  They look so festive on my dinning room table with the candy canes.

Additional Note:

In thinking outside of the box, the marshmallow trees can also be stuck into a cake or used as a edible centerpiece.

The photographed candy cane holder is actually a holiday plant with a hole in the bottom.  I purchased this planted at an outlet store.
