leftovers to dessert
so i had a little party for myself the other night, and ended up having 3 different desserts. this one was the easiest. chocolate covered marshmallows! you need:
bakers chocolate. (instead of boiling it weirdly, i just microwave it. just take it out and stir the chocolate around every 30 seconds)
marshmallows (the more the merrier, i find the big ones work the best, but the small ones would be delish in hot chocolate!)
gram crackers (optional, if you want to make frozen s'mores.)
hokay so break up the chocolate and place in a microwaveable bowl. microwave in 30 second increments, stopping to stir in between each one. when the chocolate is perfectly melted, dunk one side of the marshmallow into the chocolate. roll it around a bit, you want about 1/2 of the 'mallow to be smothered in chocolate. if you are doing frozen s'mores, place the chocolaty 'mallow chocolate side down on a gram cracker, otherwise just place on a plate. freeze either way and be sure to take out 20 mins or so before serving. otherwise the chocolate will be frozen to the plate and no one will be able to eat them! happy desserting!
