Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Marshmallows are festive and delicious. Dipped in chocolate, they make a perfect gift.
These cute and sweet marshmallows were such a fun way to ring in Valentine’s Day. As I’ve said before, my S.O. and I aren’t really into celebrating the holiday itself - I get more excited about the baking and the treats!
As you can imagine, the marshmallow mixture is very sticky before it sets. Sometimes it can become almost like a big web.
The marshmallow connects to everything in its path and you keeping grabbing more utensils to manage and wield it, but suddenly you have a big bowl of spatulas and utensils, lost forever in a ball of marshmallow.
However, this recipe for homemade marshmallows is as fuss-free as you can get when making candy. They aren’t at all messy, and the marshmallow mixture spreads super easily into the pan.
It was a cinch to work with.
Marshmallows are just so fun to make. There’s a particular novelty about them that’s hard to explain.
They become ‘something’ out of almost nothing! They’re just especially fun, and it’s saying a lot that I enjoy this marshmallow-making process because I’m normally terrible at candy-making.
Pureed fresh strawberries get mixed right into the marshmallow ‘batter’. The real strawberries keep the flavor true and authentic… because it is true and authentic.
The marshmallows taste like fresh strawberry clouds of sugar dunked into silky and rich chocolate... because that’s what they are! They’re delicious and simple, and your valentine will totally thank you for sharing these cute treats.
My only regret about these marshmallows is that I didn't put sprinkles on them. Seriously, what was I thinking? Where are the sprinkles?
Clearly, I was off my game. My sincerest apologies.
When you make these to share with your valentine, put some pretty sprinkles on top of the chocolate! Other than that, they are perfection!
