CHOCOLATE COVERED MARSHMALLOWS

So all these Valentine's Day posts are wreaking havoc on my diet. I don't usually eat with such gluttonous delight however much I want to.  After the holiday blitz is over, I'm starting my elimination diet again.  Essentially I eat like this as much as possible, no gluten, no dairy, no red meat, no sugar.  It sounds like a drag but it's actually pretty easy and makes me feel great. The goal is to eat things that are natural and easy on your digestive system. So essentially I'm trying to clear out my pantry of all things on the no-no list.  Crackers with cheese, ginger cookies, chocolate, marshmallows and 3 bags of tortilla chips we've some how accumulated by throwing parties. I've got a lot of work to do since I'm not one to waste food.

I have a major sweet tooth so I obviously reached for the marshmallows and chocolate first.  On my path to try to make all things cute, I decided to dip the marshmallows in dark chocolate and cover them in sprinkles. This is the easiest quick treat you can make with some leftover pantry items.  You literally need 3 things.  Marshmallows, chocolate chips  and sprinkles for good measure. Your kids (or discerning adults) will love them!

Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish at 20 second intervals, stirring in between until melted.

Once melted, skewer or put your marshmallows on a fork and dip your marshmallows in 3/4 of the way in.  I like showing a sliver of undipped marshmallow to show people what they're getting into.

Tap the excess chocolate off on the side of your dish.

Put your sprinkles on for cuteness sake. Let cool and chomp away!

Adorable and even great for gifting!
