Cutest, cheapest and most adorable party dessert EVER! I saw this onTasteSpotting and if you’re not familiar, then you need to check it out now! It is a visual overload of all things yummy. I love how you can just scan through pages of images of food. It can be narrowed through the search bar, but for those of us visual people it’s a quick way to find a recipe.
I made these several months ago for my wifey’s long overdue housewarming party. They were shown up by the classic favorite, rice krispie bars, but by then end of the evening there were only a handful left. :)
- 2 bags of marshmallows
- 2 containers of dipping chocolate (found in the produce section of your grocery store, usually near the strawberries or bananas)
- 1 box of graham cracker crumbs (you can crush your own, but I had this on hand from making pie crust)
- 1 bag of caramel apple sticks (found in the candy making section at Michael’s)
- ribbon (optional)
I began by stabbing all my marshmallows in the center with the candy sticks. I found it works best if you set the marshmallow on the counter and then pushed the sticks in. This seemed to help with them standing upright on their own.
Follow the directions on the container of melting chocolates to aquire the right consistency. I originally started dipping the entire marshmallow in chocolate, but as I quickly began running low on chocolate, I switched techniques. I only dunked half of the marshmallows in the chocolate. I actually like the look of this better, being able to see all three ingredients in a layered look.
After dipping them in chocolate you should immediately roll them in graham cracker crumbs. I had poured about a cups worth in a shallow bowl.
Line up your finished product on wax paper for the chocolate to harden and there will be no risk of the chocolate sticking. If you’re choosing to tie ribbons on the tops of the sticks, you can now begin to cut 2-3” strips. My roommate and I tied them in a simple while the chocolate was still drying.
I made these the evening before the party, but I think that a four hour window before serving would be sufficient.
