Dark Chocolate covered Coconut Marshmallows

Amy Croyle


I am a huge fan of anything coconut and dark chocolate so I took my favorite marshmallow recipe and made these! I love to make them as gifts and they are some of my friends and familys favorits! sorry about the poor picture it was taken on my cell phone. You can leave out the coconut extract and add a Tbls. of vanilla and toss them in powdered sugar for some plain old home made marshmallows. so good too!

How to Make Dark Chocolate covered Coconut Marshmallows


  1. Line a 13 by 9 inch pan with foil and pray with non stick cooking spray; set aside
  2. In a larg mixing bowl (I use my kitchen aid mixer bowl) sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup water; set aside.
  3. In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, salt, and remaining water. Bring to a boil, stiring occasionally. Cook without strring, until a candy thermometer reads 240* (soft-ball sstage)
  4. Remove from heat and gradully add to gelatin in a small stream while beating. Beat on high speed until mixture is thick and the volume has doubled, about 15minuts, it should look like marshmallow cream, beat in coconut extract.
  5. Spread into prepared pan, cover and let stand 6 hours or over night.
  6. Lift marshmalllow out using foil, with a pizza cutter coated with cooking spray (you can use a knife to) cut into 1 1/2 in squares.
  7. Melt bag of chocolate chips and coconut oil in microwave safe bowl in microwave. start with one minute and then continue for 30 second interavls till smooth, do not over heat!
  8. Dip bottoms of marshmallows in chocolat and place on waxed paper. Transfer remaining chocolate to a plastic ziploc bag, cut off small amount of a corner and use to drizzle chocolate over the tops of the marshmallows. Top with toasted coconut if you so wish. Let harden, this can take different amounts of time depending on house temperature. Enjoy!
