Fancy Chocolate Covered Marshmallows are great for holiday parties

I’m sure you know that I love entertaining.   I like having people over because that means I can make a ton of pretty food, use some of my fancy cooking tools, and have a great time.  While I enjoy making desserts that take a lot of effort and really wow people, sometimes it’s just easier to make something that looks fancy but only takes a few minutes.

One thing I like to make that looks fancy but is really easy to make are Chocolate Covered Marshmallows.  I simply put them on a fancy pick and then use the pick to dip the marshmallows.   The great thing about dipping marshmallows is you can do whatever you want to them.  They can be dipped in chocolate and rolled in sprinkles, nuts, or chopped up candy.  They can be decorated with more chocolate.

Love the look of these fancy Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

These marshmallows were made to go on a tray with my chocolate covered strawberries and the whole platter wowed all of my guests.  It only took about 20 minutes to make both the strawberries and the marshmallows but they looked awesome.  The marshmallows were dipped in white chocolate then allowed to dry.  Then I took a piping bag of pink chocolate and simply swirled it around the marshmallows.   I then quickly sprinkled them with black edible glitter.

Decoraate marshmallows with white chocolate and pint and black details

They ended up looking elegant and went perfectly with my pink dipped strawberries.   So if you are looking for an easy but elegant looking dessert, give these chocolate covered marshmallows a try!

  • 24 marshmallows
  • 24 fancy food picks
  • 1 1/2 c. white chocolate melts
  • 3/4 c. pink candy melts divided
  • black edible glitter


  • Place a piece of wax paper on a table.
  • Place 1/4 c. pink candy melts in a microwave safe dish. Heat in 20 second intervals, stirring after each heating, until the candy is melted.
  • Dip a food pick into the pink candy and then into the marshmallow. Set on the wax paper to harden. (This should only take a few minutes)
  • Place the white chocolate melts in a microwave safe dish. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each heating, until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Dip a marshmallow into the white chocolate and allow the excess to drip off. Place the marshmallow on the wax paper to harden. Repeat with remaining marshmallows.
  • Place the remaining pink candy melts in the dish with the candy melts you have already used. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring after each heating, until the candy is completely melted.
  • Pour the melted pink candy into a zip top baggie and snip off the edge. Hold a marshmallow by the pick and starting at the top, pipe a thin pink line around the marshmallow in a swirl. Quickly sprinkle with black edible glitter and place back on the wax paper. Repeat with remaining marshmallows.


A Hezzi-D Original Recipe
**I've found that I like to use the black glitter on some of the marshmallows and I like leaving some of them with just the pink swirl for a little variety.**
