Marshmallow Candy

Marshmallow Suprise

This was an idea that I had for halloween. We were having a party and I was trying to think of a treat or craft idea for the kids to make. These chocolate filled marshmallows get a nice crispy and sweet coating from the simple syrup.

Marshmallow suprises candy are a great cooking recipe to make with kids and are the perfect craft idea for a fun school activity or on a rainy day. Decorate them acording to the holiday season (Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc) for a festive candy treat.

Chocolate Filled Marshmallow Recipe

  • 24 marshmallows
  • 24 chocolate kisses
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • food coloring
  • candy sprinkles
  1. place the water and sugar in a sauce pan and bring to boil over medium heat. when simple syrup reaches a boil remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. make a small slit with a knife in the bottom of each marshmallow and insert a chocolate kiss.
  3. Decorating ideas:

1. dip (or use a brush and paint) the marshmallows in the simple syrup and roll in colored candy sprinkles to fit the holiday season

2. separate simple syrup into bowls and mix a few drops of food coloring into each. use small paint brushes to decorate the marshmallows with festive holiday designs.

when I made these, I used a basting brush to paint the sides of the marshmallows with the syrup and rolled them in candy sprinkles then used a small brush to paint designs on the flat tops (I made them for a halloween party but they would make great Christmas candies or craft ideas for kids at school as well!)
(note: when I first made these I made a batch of chocolate ganache and used a rather large marinade injector to push the ganache into the marshmallows. it was difficult but can be done if you prefer.)
