Chocolate Dipped Strawberry … Marshmallow Hearts

Are they strawberries … or marshmallows?  The correct answer is both … they are strawberry flavored marshmallows … in the shape of hearts, of course … just in time for Valentine’s Day!

This what you will need …

  • Heart Mallows (I found them at Target)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Green candy that can be used for stems
  • Green candy melts
  • Candy melts (whatever flavor or color you desire).  About 1-2 pounds should cover the entire bag of marshmallows.

Let’s make the strawberries first.  Make a hole in the top of the heart … I used a lollipop stick … this will make it easy to insert the candy stem later …

Use a toothpick and little green chocolate to make a leaf around the hole in the marshmallow …

Insert the candy stem … the green chocolate will act as “glue” to hold the stem … set aside to let the chocolate harden up …

There is a reason that I made “long stem” strawberries … you now have something to hold while dipping the marshmallow in chocolate …

Lay it on waxed paper or parchment and drizzle with a contrasting color …

Now for something a little quicker … make some marshmallow pops …

Dip in chocolate … tap off excess chocolate and lay on waxed paper or parchment paper …

Drizzle with a contrasting color and pop in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up …

Here are a few more pics …

Sooo easy and fun :)

    • Thank you for the compliment … but I believe that I have “marshmallow issues”. I go looking in stores for different shapes, flavors, etc. … and feel compelled to buy them. They may sit in my cupboard a while before an idea comes to mind :)

    • I have the same issues when searching online … I found small ones on Amazon. Kraft does have a search by zipcode on their site. If you live near a Winco or Walmart give them a try. Also, there are many recipes available to make your own marshmallows if you are adventurous :)
