With a wet hand pat down the marshmallows to have a flat bottom. Let them sit at room temptaure for a few hours to set up. Take them out of the mold. Using a paper towel dust off the extra flour. Using a double boiler (How to Melt Chocolate in a Double Boiler) melt the chocolate, if the chocolate is to thick you can add a little bit of shorting to help thin it out. Using a fork dip each one into the melted chocolate until they are completely coated. Tap the fork on the edge of the bowl to remove the extra chocolate. Place them on a cooling rack to cool and harden before eating.
