INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips, dark or milk chocolate, or 1 1/4 cups blue-toned candy melts

  • 12 chocolate kisses or nonpareils
  • 1 tube white writing icing

Dip the bottom of a chocolate kiss or nonpareil into the melted chocolate and adhere it to the other end of the marshmallow. Place it on its side on the waxed paper to set. Repeat with the remaining marshmallows. Put them in the fridge for 15-30 minutes to ensure that the components have adhered. [...] read more
