chocolate dipped marshmallows

My cousin, aka the cutest baby in the world, is turning one this week! And she is one lucky girl to have the cutest butterfly birthday bash in the world, organized and planned to perfection by her lovely mom, my amazing aunt!

As a treat for the party, I spent the entire day yesterday – 8 hours straight – standing in the kitchen, dipping dozens of marshmallows in dark chocolate, white chocolate, pink chocolate, butterfly sprinkles, and decorations galore! It definitely trumps the mounds of homework I have to do before my weekend class tonight.

I thought I’d share the pictures from the marshmallow dipping – they make such cute party favors and eye candy on the dessert table!


Aren’t these cute? Be warned though – individually wrapping each marshmallow stick is VERY time-consuming!


Lots of sprinkles and decorations.


More sprinkles.


Here’s my kitchen, pre-dipping.


Lots of marshmallows!


These are three jumbo marshmallows on lollypop sticks, dipped in dark chocolate with rainbow sprinkles!


Here is a close-up. So good!


I also dipped them in pink and white chocolate too! The white with rainbow sprinkles are my favorite.


Lots of pink!


Love these! The all white ones have little frosting flowers on top.


These are five miniature marshmallows on a lollypop stick. I like this marshmallow to chocolate ratio more than the jumbo marshmallows – it’s a little bit less overwhelming to eat in one sitting!


I love these miniature marshmallows!


Miniature marshmallows with chocolate sprinkles – yum!

    Oh Star! You’ve really outdone yourself this time. They are sooooo cute and pretty! Your house looks so nice with the white and pink. I saw an idea recently about doing something similar (I think it might’ve been on “1825” blog) about dipping a marshmallow in chocolate, wrapping and adding a line from “Twas the Night Before Christmas” which was “…sugar plums dance in their head”. I had it bookmarked to do this Christmas for my daughter’s school friends. (They get so much candy from other kids, I’m still in two minds.) Love yours though!

    OMG Star…. are you for real? seriously too too too cute. I imagine wrapping all those is time consuming like you said but it’s worth it. this would be fab for a party.

    WOW! these chocolate dipped marshmallows are so adorable – i love the sprinkles and the pink flower details! i can’t believe you spent 8 hours dipping and wrapping each one – that’s one lucky 1 year old!!

  11. Catherine says:

    Very cute! I don’t think I’ve ever seen multiple marshmallows on a stick before… Most parties I’ve seen do just one, with the stick side up. But I think that this is cuter!

    Hi Star

    Thanks for all your lovely comments on my blog. I’m sure you’d have no worries pulling off the beef satay and coconut rice. A girl of your talent!

    You know, I handed an ice cream to my daughter and she said “good job Mum”. Made it all worthwhile. I grinned all night.

    Have a lovely week Star!

    Completely agree re the chocolate to marshmallow ratio, in favor of the the smaller sized marshmallows… Beautiful work, Star! Wow. πŸ™‚
