Halloween Party Treats- Chocolate Marshmallows

Every fall, I begin thinking up easy creations to make for halloween.

While we no longer have school parties, my girls often take in treats for teachers, or their friends.  And I am always wanting to share ideas with ideas for parties because I know many people who do trunk or treat, or halloween parties instead of trick or treating. And since these events are often with a close group of people, I think it’s fine to make homemade treats to package and share with friends.

These simple to make marshmallow sticks are fun and delicious. And packaging them is an easy and festive look for not much money.

The first thing I did was to create my own sprinkle mix. I have several containers of sprinkles, it seems like I always run out of one or two colors, and still have a few colors left, so I went with several colors that were just sitting in almost used up containers.

First I added in red, yellow, and orange for fall, and some chocolate sprinkles for a pretty brown look.

If you don’t celebrate Halloween and would rather make these for fall, just change out the straws and spiders for leaves.

Mix up the sprinkles in a bowl.

Prep is easy, I found several straws with halloween colors and just inserted them into the jumbo marshmallows I bought at the store.  JUMBO MARSHMALLOWS.

Place these on a sheet of parchment paper. This can be placed on a sheet pan as well,  if it isn’t cool enough in the house for the chocolate to set up quickly.

Melt one cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I melt them at 30 second intervals until they are creamy and no lumps are left. Make sure to stir well after each interval in the microwave.

I like this bowl, where it is taller then it is wide, this gives me a better space to dip in. If you are having trouble dipping, use the spoon to bring the chocolate up and over the marshmallow.

Be sure to also coat the bottom. Remove the excess chocolate by swirling the spoon over the chocolate.

Take your still wet chocolate over to your sprinkles bowl, and pick up a few pinches of sprinkles then lightly sprinkle them over the chocolate.

Place the marshmallow on the parchment paper.

Once all the mashmallows are dipped, allow the chocolate to cool back down, and you can package them.

One cup of chocolate chips coated about 16 marshmallows if you need a number to measure for a certain amount.

I used candy bags from the craft store to package them in. However, I cut off about 3 inches from the top of the bag so it would be neater looking.

Use a piece of twine, hemp, string or whatever you have to tie the bag closed, then add a bow.

You can add a spider ring to the bag as well, and add a glue dot to keep the ring on the package.
