I am your neighbor.
So here's a little something I came up with 'cause I needed a little something... just a little... something... to share with our Local Sugar Hawaii neighbors.
These are giant marshmallows, I found them at Walmart-- yup, the Wal-to-the-Ma-art.
I'm doing a fist pump right now, you can't see me, but I'm doing it-- your welcome Walmart.
In Hawaii these cost just over four dollars for a bag of about thirty, 'kay now I'm super jealous of you non Hawaii folk 'cause I'm thinking you'll probably pay way less.
Oh, the joys of shipping.
Did I mention these marshmallows are giant? Really, really giant-- like giant cupcake giant... yeah, giant.
So here's how the assembly went-- trust me you'll wanna assemble these cause they're fast, easy, yumminess plus they have this major wow factor aspect that is like, wow.
Quick story, we had a birthday party for Tyty at Ice Palace Hawaii on Saturday and several people came up to find out what these were, (his were favors for the party guests and were presented like cakepops topped with rainbow sprinkles), and where can they get some, and do I make them to sell.
After blushing a most ridiculous blush and doing my "you can totally do it cheer" I told them they could meet us here and we'd make them together.
So, here we go.
Chocolate chips for melting
Place some chocolate chips in a microwave proof bowl. I used white chocolate, for a cookies and cream variation, semisweet and milk chocolate, for two different types of chocolate based ones, and peanut butter chips for, well, peanutbuttery ones.
Melt chocolate for two to three minutes on medium high.
Remove chocolate every minute to stir and distribute the heat.
Dip each marshmallow in the chocolate of your choice. For several of these I have to confess I double-dipped, first in peanut butter and then, after letting the peanut butter layer firm up just a bit, in a milk chocolate.
It's totally fine to be creative, you know what you like better than anyone and there are so many flavor combination possibilities.
I work with about six at a time letting the chocolate firm up just a bit before garnishing. The yumminess above is dipped in milk chocolate, topped with piped melted peanut butter chips, a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup wedge and chocolate sprinkles.
Here are a few variations we made:
Double dipped peanut butter and chocolate
topped with a peanut butter drizzle and Nutter Butter slice
Cookies and Cream
Peanut Butter Cup
I'm off to share some Aloha with the neighbors,
'cause what is Aloha if it isn't shared?
