Looking for something stupid simple to make for holiday parties or teacher gifts? I have your answer – chocolate marshmallows. I came across these on Pinterest and have made them for a baby shower and a holiday party ultimately making me the most favorite invitee. Well, probably not, but I like to pretend. These are cheap, easy to make and SO addictive.


  • Large Marshmallows
  • Dipping Chocolate (I like Baker’s brand)
  • Sticks
  • Decorations
  • Parchment paper


  • I like using paper straws as the ‘handle’ because paper straws are pretty. I cut them in half. You can also use lollipop sticks or popsicle sticks.  Just make sure you cut them to a decent length.
  • Stick them in the marshmallows.

  • Prepare the chocolate based on its directions
  • Then dip! Dip each one in about half way, and be patient while the excess drips off. You don’t want it to be gloopy.
  • Press the bottom into your decorations. I like seasonal sprinkles or chopped nuts. I did learn that sugar sprinkles don’t work well unless you are using white dipping chocolate.

  • Let them harden on parchment paper for about an hour and then enjoy!

See? Stupid simple. The whole thing takes about half an hour (max I would guess) and I was the hero; not only at my house, but the parties I attended! #youarewelcome

  1. I discovered these last year….. LOVED it! and need to get more for this year…. I used to use bakers chocolate but I have started leaning more towards Ghiradeli (though its more $) . LOVE the idea to use paper straws! I always did popsicle sticks and felt they were too “small” for the big marshmallow. Your’s look great!

    • Thanks Patience! I liked the straws because paper straws are apparently a ‘thing’ now and you can get them in all sorts of patterns. I got a victorian floral for Rachel’s baby shower and gold for the holidays. I do love a theme.
