Delicious Chocolate-covered Marshmallows Recipe 

Chocolate-covered marshmallows are a simple and delightful treat for any occasion! Sprinkle seasonal sprinkles, spread colourful candy melts or make marshmallow pops.  


– 1-2 10-ounce bags semi-sweet chocolate chips see note – 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil or shortening see note – 1 12-ounce bag standard-size or jumbo marshmallows OR 1 batch homemade marshmallow Optional decorations: – Sprinkle – Contrasting chocolate almond bark, or candy melt – Lollipop or cake-pop stick


Put the chocolate chips and coconut oil or butter in a bowl that can go in the microwave. Heat for one minute.   

Step 1

Mix well. Stir the chocolate every 15 seconds while you keep heating it in the microwave until it melts and is shiny.  

Step 2

To dip each marshmallow in the chocolate, use a toothpick to pick it up and dip it in. You can dip them all the way through or just half way.   

Step 3

Make-your-own marshmallows are lighter and fluffier than store-bought marshmallows, so you might need to use a fork to help lift them out of the chocolate.  

Step 4

To get rid of the extra chocolate on the bottom of the marshmallows, use a fork or the bowl's edge.   

Step 5

Dip marshmallows and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkles should be added immediately while the chocolate is moist.  

Step 6

For decorating, drizzle dipped marshmallows with contrasting melted chocolate, almond bark, or candy melts.  

Step 7

Dipped marshmallows should lay on parchment in a cool area until chocolate sets.  Airtight container storage.
