Homemade Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs

Each year my mother-in-law invites the grandchildren over to dip and decorate homemade marshmallow eggs. It takes every ounce of restraint I have to not steal all of the kids marshmallows because they really are the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. This year I decided I would try my hand at marshmallow making and that way I would have an entire batch to eat all by myself!

Homemade Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Easter Eggs

Although I LOVE food, I’m not a super confidant cook. My MIL explained the process to me, but still unsure, I watched a video tutorial of Martha Stewart and Claire Danes making some. It looked easy enough. I followed this recipe and got the mixture successfully into my Bosch kitchen mixer.

With 2:23 left to go my wire whisks broke from the top of the machine! I didn’t even have a chance to add the vanilla. But, I determined by a very important method – dipping my finger in it – that it still tasted super yummy! So, my estimate is that you only need to mix it for 8-10 minutes (update: I’ve made them several more times and 8 minutes seems to be perfect for my mixer), then stir in the vanilla (Update: I add the vanilla with about 3 minutes of mixing remaining). I’ll do that next time (since I was able to fix my whisks).

The mixture was SUPER thick and getting it into the ziplock bag for piping was tricky – but I did it.  Spray the inside of your gallon bag with non-stick spray to help it slide out. It would be helpful to have one person holding the bag and the other person scooping. Alos using a large plastic cup to hold to bag is helpful.

While it was in the mixer, I prepared my baking dish by adding about 5 – 6 cups of flour and then made indentations using a spoon. My mother in law uses a plastic Easter egg to get her shape, both work for me.

I wasn’t sure how the soft flour would hold enough to be a mold, but it actually worked. I piped the mallows in and then pinched it off with floured fingers. Once the entire dish was filled I dusted the tops with flour and let it sit overnight to dry out.

The next morning I dusted them off and dipped them in melted chocolate and set them on wax paper to harden. Then came the best part – tasting them! They are delicious!! I don’t care if they completely break my mixer – they are worth it!
