Chocolate Coated Home Made Marshmallows
HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY MARSHMALLOWS
I did not include making the marshmallows in my prep time or cooking time as it is a recipe on it's own (and you can make this recipe using store bought marshmallows too)
My old recipe called for harder, chewier marshmallows... So I made the marshmallow at 5 am... and dipped them at 4:30 pm, so they could toughen up a bit from sitting in the open air.
They came out very good!!!

2Make the marshmallows... let them cool and get a littled hardened and chewier from sitting out for several hours.
3Cut into strips about an inch wide. Tear the strips to desired size (I tear them rather than cut them... they are less uniform and more rustic).
4In double boiler: Melt the chocolate until creamy.
5Drop a few pieces of the marshmallows at a time into the melted chocolate. Roll them around to completely coat.
(I use a fork to do this, and to scoop them out and tap the inside of the pan to get the excess chocolate off).
6Transfer the coated marshmallows to a wax paper lined baking sheet. Put into the freezer or refrigerator for 5-10 minutes to set the chocolate.
7Leave plain, or garnish with candy sprinkles.
