Whenever we go to Disneyland at Christmas time my kids always ask for the peppermint marshmallow sticks. While the Peppermint marshmallows at Disney have some Disney magic in them, the great thing is that you do not have to go to Disneyland to get them. They are so easy to make at home and they are one of my favorite easy holiday treats to make at home!

Variations of this Recipe
Change up the chocolate. I like using milk chocolate or dark chocolate but you can also use white chocolate or different colored chocolate melts.
Use flavored Marshmallows. You can also use different flavored marshmallows when making these chocolate marshmallow pops. My kids loved it when I used stuffed marshmallows to make them. You can even use homemade marshmallows!
Add more flavors. You can also drizzle peanut butter, caramel, and other flavor toppings along with the melted chocolate to change things up. Or you can dip the marshmallow wands into homemade caramel, peanut butter, or hot fudge before dipping in melted chocolate.
Use Lolipop sticks. I know some people say to use paper straws however after testing it many times I have found that lollipops sticks is a much better option and they are much sturdier for being held.
Tips for Making this Recipe
Melting chocolate. It is important to use a quality melting chocolate when you are dipping marshmallows in chocolate.
Use a Double Boiler to melt chocolate. As easy as it is to melt chocolate in the microwave I find it much easier to dip marshmallows when I am melting chocolate in a double boiler.

How to Thin Chocolate when Making Chocolate covered Marshmallows
If your chocolate is thick you can add a little shortening to help thin out your chocolate. This is not always needed, but if you need to just add a teaspoon at a time to the chocolate and stir it well to combine and melt the shortening into the chocolate.
How to Store Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows
These chocolate covered marshmallow wands will stay fresh for up to a week, when stored properly. Once the chocolate has hardened, store them in an airtight container. If you need to make more than one layer, place parchment paper between layers.
You can store these at room temperature or in the fridge. If your home is humid or warm, I do recommend the fridge to prevent any melting of the chocolate.
