Melt the 1/3 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl for about two minutes on low setting, taking out every thirty seconds to stir.

Prepare a plate with wax/parchment paper, and set the three marshmallows on it.

Glue each marshmallow to the other with a dab of chocolate in the middle. Set to cool on plate, best in fridge.
