How to Make Christmas Holly Marshmallows
- Melt the chocolate according to package instructions in a microwaveable bowl.
- Lay the marshmallows out on a clean surface, setting them up on parchment paper or wax paper can help with a quick cleanup.
- Dip a small spoon into the melted chocolate and then move your hand quickly but carefully over the marshmallows to drizzle the chocolate in thin ribbons.
- While the chocolate is still soft, set the sprinkles into place, settled into the chocolate so they’ll stay.
- You can then let them rest right there while the chocolate hardens, or you can transfer them to the fridge/freezer to harden faster.
These Christmas holly marshmallows freeze wonderfully. This allows you to make them weeks or longer in advance. Simply place them in an air tight container so they’ll be ready for your holiday party! Allow 30 minutes or so of rest time between remove from the freezer and serving.
