Picture of Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs
For Easter you will find large Chocolate covered Marshmallow eggs available in your local Super Markets.  Sometimes there will be someone there, who will write a name on the egg for you, sometimes not.  Today I will show you how easy it is to create your own Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs.  I will use a marshmallow recipe that gives the marshmallow a fruity flavor, so choose a flavor of gelatin that works well with the chocolate.  Here we go.

Step 1:

Great idea! I have made my own marshmallows for a number of years and tried chocolate covered marshmallow eggs once. I'd used a cookie cutter. I hadn't thought about creating a mold in flour. I LOVE this and will try it. Thank you!

What to use if you want a regular flavor marshmallow ?

There are a lot of recipes out there for vanilla (regular) flavored marshmallows, like here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Flavored-Marshmallows/. Good luck and have fun! Thanks for asking.

I love this idea! Is it alright if I twist the process a bit for my own instruct able , of course giving you credit?

Go right a head! Can't wait to see it.
