Marshmallow Dips

Today I was enterprising.  I decided to make something for the kids who will be on our float for the annual 4th of July parade we have in my subdivision. 

I took a bag of campfire marshmallows, the big ones.  1 bag of Guittard semi sweet chocolate chips, and 1 bag of Andes Crème de Menthe pieces and made marshmallow dips.  1 sheet of parchment paper.

This will make a simple treat for kids or adults. 

Take the bag of Guittard chocolate chips and empty into a microwave safe bowl.  Place in microwave for 2 minutes on high, check to make sure if they are melted or not.  If you mix with a spoon and they aren't ready, zap them again for another minute.  Mix when they are finally melted, do this in short increments of time since chocolate will scorch and ruin, quickly. 

Open bag of marshmallows, put aside.  Open bag of Crème de Menthe pieces and place in another bowl. 

Take a marshmallow, dip one end in the melted chocolate, then immediately dip the chocolate end into the Crème de Menthe pieces, place on parchment paper.  Keep this up until you have as many as you want or you run out of pieces.  When the marshmallows are dry, place them in a container.  The chocolate will cool and set in place as long as there is no humidity. 

Can be made several days ahead.  Enjoy!
