Every year Laurie and I take a trip to Disneyland. When we were there in December we saw Marshmallow Wands at the Main Street Candy Store. They were so cute and we said, almost in unison, “we could do that.” When Laurie and I were talking about what to make for Valentine’s Day we knew we had to make some Valentines Day Marshmallow Wands. I was worried they might be hard, but they were so easy to make and they are delicious.
How to Make Valentines Day Marshmallow Wands
You will need:
- Regular sized Marshmallows
- Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers or Chocolate Chips
- Wilton Red Candy Melts
- Wilton Bright Pink Candy Melts
- Wilton Bright White Candy Melts
- Valentine’s Day sprinkles
- Valentines’ Mix M&M’s
- Wilton Lollipop Sticks
I got my bag of marshmallows and spilled them onto the table to find 3 marshmallows that were approximately the same size. As it turns out, that was harder than I thought it would be.
After finding three that went well together, I cut a whole in the middle of the bottom of the marshmallows with a knife. I don’t know if this step is necessary, but I found it easier to thread the stick through the marshmallows when I had the hole at the bottom.
After getting all the marshmallows on the sticks, I got my chocolate ready to melt. (Note: I tried both melting chocolate and chocolate chips to coat the marshmallows. I found the melting chocolate much easier to use. It melted into a thinner consistency so covering the marshmallows was easier. The one down side of melting chocolate is that it dries very quickly so if you want to add sprinkles, or M&M’s you need to do it quickly. The chocolate chips were a little clumpy and coated the marshmallow wands much thicker. As for taste, there was no difference. They were both delicious.)
I used a long shallow pan to melt the chocolate. I put about 20-25 chocolate wafers in the pan and microwaved them for 30 seconds. I checked them, gave them a stir and then microwaved them for 10 seconds more. Stirred and then microwaved them for another 10 seconds. Once they were almost completely melted I took them out gave them a final stir. This amount covered 2 to 3 wands. Then I used a spoon to help cover the marshmallows and also to smooth out the chocolate.
Once covered, I added my M&M’s. Again, the melting chocolate dries quickly so if you are going to sticking something to the marshmallow wands do it immediately.
For this marshmallow wand, I added sprinkles instead of M&M’s.
And for this marshmallow wand I drizzled colored candy melts on but first I set the marshmallow wand out on parchment paper to dry. While it was drying, I melted 15-20 Wilton Candy Melts in a Ziploc bag. Once melted, I cut the tip off the bag and drizzled the candy over the marshmallow wands. Make sure you only cut the very very tip of the bag. You only want a small hole to give yourself more control over the drizzle.
So beautiful and even more delicious!
