This is smores stuff. First you take the kabob. You stick the malow with the kabob. Then, you dunk the mallow. When the mallows swimming, you stick on the sprinkles and cover it with them. Then, you scarf.

Who can name that quote from one of the best movies of all time? (Here’s a hint: I want Wendy Peffercorn’s sexy lifeguard sunglasses)
This post is all about the “mallows”.
One of my favorite ways to add a little bit of sugary fun to a party is to make marshmallow pops. They are quick, easy and inexpensive. What else could you ask for? (*If you said healthy, you are disqualified.)
First you take the “mallow”. Spear it with a kabob stick. A toothpick would also do the job, or clean fingers for the brave-at-heart. If you are an over-achiever, unlike myself, you’ll make your own marshmallows.
Next, dip the mallow into a melted chocolate-y mixture (which you will have conveniently already melted down in your double boiler). I chose white chocolate for today, though I can attest dark chocolate is just as tasty.
Let the extra chocolate drip off in the pot. Next, roll your chocolate-y goodness covered mallow in a plate of sprinkles (or chocolate chips, coconut flakes, cinnamon imperials… whatever you fancy).
Place it on wax paper to harden and you’re done! If the chocolate shell isn’t firm, stick it in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Then, you scarf.
You don’t like marshmallows you say? You’re killin’ me Smalls!
Psssssttt…. I have a secret ingredient.
Yup! Coffee syrups! I put it in my melted chocolate for a hint-o-caramel. (I’ve also used it in cake batter, icings and brownies to my taste bud’s delight.)
Oh, and are you wondering what those delicious looking chocolate dipped cookies are in the background?
Bridal shower favors for my friend Eva. More on that later this week. : )
How do you feel about the “mallows”?
