1 bag of regular size marshmallows
1 bag of Wilton Dark Chocolate Raspberry candy melts
paper heart topper (optional)
If desired hot glue a heart at the tip of the skewers to create a topper.
Place candy melts in a microwave safe bowl ( I only used half the bag for 20 marshmallows) Heat until completely melted. Dip marshmallows in melted candy, using a spoon take off some of the excess chocolate from the bottom and place on a piece of wax paper. This will give the candy time to thicken so your sprinkles don’t slide off. I did 5 at a time. Starting with the first one dipped I then dipped the chocolate dipped marshmallow into the sprinkles and placed them on the serving tray. Place the finished marshmallows in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to help speed up the drying process. Now you can skewer the marshmallows. TIP: Make sure you are coming straight down to skewer. This will help the skewers to stay straight.
