What is a Chocolate-Coated Marshmallow?

Chocolate-Coated Marshmallows have been around for quite some time, but the sweet treat has gained popularity recently as its pleasing combination of crispy candy coating and velvety marshmallow make it an ideal favorite for sweet tooths looking for something a little more flavorful than a straight chocolate.

When making a traditional chocolate-coated marshmallow, a heady mixture of marshmallow, sugar, gelatin and water is usually introduced to a pan and heated until it reaches a thick consistency. The mixture is then whipped until it becomes fluffy, and the marshmallow is ready for coating. After the marshmallow is coated in the desired amount of chocolate, it is immediately set aside by cooling it in the refrigerator.

The result is a delightful treat that’s a cross between a candy bar and marshmallow. The outside of the marshmallow is a hard, smooth chocolate coating while on the inside, the marshmallow provides a tantalizing and slightly chewy texture. The sweetness of the marshmallow is evenly balanced by the depth of the chocolate, making for a truly satisfying experience. Chocolate-coated marshmallows can be purchased in a variety of shapes and sizes, so it’s easy to find something to suit your needs.

Chocolate-covered marshmallows are a popular choice among children thanks to the sweet, chocolate-y flavour they provide, as well as their low cost. Most stores carry packages of them at prices that are relatively low, so purchasing a few packs to serve as a treat is a great indulgence. The appearance of the marshmallows draws many children in, as there’s something about the way the impressive chocolate shell looks that draws people in for a closer look.

There are a couple of different ways to make chocolate-coated marshmallows at home. The most basic way is to melt your own chocolate and scrape off the wrapper from the marshmallows, before dipping them into the melted chocolate and setting them aside. Another more involved method involves rolling the marshmallows in a sugar paste to create a cracked candy coating, and then coating them in a layer of semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate.

No matter which way you choose to make chocolate-coated marshmallows, they will be sure to make a delicious treat. They pair well with other sweet treats like cookies and cupcakes, but they’re also wonderful all on their own. Whether it’s a quick snack or an impressive dessert, chocolate-coated marshmallows have something to offer everyone. For kids and adults alike, they are sure to bring a smile to your face with every bite.
