From Kraft. I can't wait to make them for the kids as a special treat! A perfect Valentine surprise. Cook time is cooling time. (I loved the idea the first reviewer had and wanted to add it to the recipe itself, "Substituting crisped cereal for the pecans would make it special for the little ones who are allergic to nuts" Thanks ohgal for such a great suggestion!)
- 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chunks, melted
- 1 (10 ounce) package marshmallows
- 2⁄3 cup pecans, chopped (or rice krispies)
- Place chocolate in a microwave-safe glass bowl. Melt chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth.
- Dip marshmallows, one at a time, in chocolate, turning to evenly coat each marshmallow. Gently shake off excess chocolate.
- Place marshmallows, in single layer, on sheets of wax paper. Sprinkle each with about 1 teaspoons of the pecans.
- Let stand at room temperature 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until chocolate is set.
- Store in airtight container at room temperature.
Very cute! I made half with nuts and half with coconut flakes. It took a little while to get the hang of the dipping (my first ones were very ugly!!) I think I might put sticks in them next time for easy dipping and eating. These would be perfect to make with kids!
*Oh my goodness!! these are good, and so easy! My 3.5 year old son helped me dip these, and we had a great time working together. I didn't dip the marshmallows all the way, just half way, since it was easier for my DS to handle. We sprinkled shredded coconut on some of them, and slivered almonds on others (we left some plain too). These are addictive, easy, and pretty. Thanks, Marg!!
Very easy to do and fun to make! we made some and they went really well!
