Marshmallow Pops

I first wanted to wish a holiday holiday to all of you Chocolate Shavings readers. Your kind comments, emails and readership mean the world to me and make me want to write even after a long day. I hope your holidays are filled with great company, delicious food and a lot of love. Maybe even a few thoughtful gifts too!

For a simple festive treat, here is my recipe for marshmallow pops. These are delicious - and even better with homemade marshmallows!. You can make them as a part of a dessert buffet table or a simple indulgence for an afternoon party. Once the chocolate has set you can lay them out on platters or creatively display them upwards on a table. If you like marshmallows as much as I do, these are the treat for you!
Marshmallow Pops
Makes 12

12 marshmallows
12 lollipop sticks
2 cups of bittersweet chocolate chips
sparkles of your choice

Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth. Place a marshmallow at the top of each lollipop stick.
Dip in the melted chocolate tapping off excess. Add sprinkles and leave to cool.
