Coated Marshmallows

We attended a bring-a-dessert Christmas party recently and I wanted to bring something fun and different for everyone to enjoy. It needed to feed a lot of people, so it had to be economical. After some internet scouring and this inspiring picture, I decided to make uniquely flavored coated marshmallows. 

The ingredients were cheap and quick with things I had on hand. Coconut, graham cracker crumbs, crushed peppermint (not shown), marshmallows, toothpicks, semi-sweet chocolate chips and Crisco. To make the coating, I microwaved the chocolate chips with a few spoonfuls of Crisco added in for 30-second intervals at 60% power until melted. Don't over-heat! You'll end up with a mess and not-so-tasty chocolate (if that's possible)!

Then I speared each marshmallow with a toothpick and dipped it halfway into the melted chocolate, then rolled it in the topping to create each flavor. I went with 3 crowd pleasers this time:

(chocolate and graham cracker crumbs)

(chocolate and flaked coconut)

Chocolate Peppermint
(chocolate and crushed candy canes)

They were a fun twist on the typical dessert offering and everyone had fun picking out their favorite flavor.

I do have to warn you though, it was way more popular with the gals than the guys. The boys went for the oatmeal cookies. :)
