Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs




Introduction: Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs

About: In a valiant attempt to keep myself from dying of boredom, I create.
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:

2 (1/4 oz.) envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 cup boiling water
1/4 cup fruit flavored gelatin (dry Jello mix your choice of flavor)
2 cups granulated sugar
Chocolate candy coating
Parchment paper
9”x13” cake pan half full of flour
Large plastic egg
Sugar flowers (found of the Wilton isle of your local craft shop)
Not shown: spoons, rubber scraper, stand mixer, knife

Step 2:

In the mixer bowl, combine unflavored gelatin and cold water, letting it stand for 5 minutes.

Step 3:

Add boiling water and flavored gelatin. Stir with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula until dissolved. Add sugar.  Stir well. 

Step 4:

Using electric mixer on high, beat until the mixture is thick and fluffy, about 15 minutes.

Step 5:

While beating the marshmallow, flatten out the flour in the cake pan. 

Step 6:

Press the plastic egg into the flour to create an egg shaped recess in the flour.

Step 7:

Make as many recesses as you need for gifts etc. 

Step 8:

Once the marshmallow is light and stiff, spoon some into each recess in the flour.    Level them the best you can.  Let the marshmallow set for a couple of hours. 

Step 9:

If you have extra marshmallow, pour the left over into a nonstick spray, prepared pan and let stand at room temperature until firm, about 2 hours. Using a knife that's been dipped into hot water, cut marshmallow into pieces, Roll in powdered sugar, shaking off excess. Store them in an airtight container.

Step 10:

Fill a microwave safe glass/ceramic bowl with the chocolate pieces. 

Step 11:

Place in the microwave and cook on high, one minute at a time, stirring the chocolate after each minute interval.  Once the chocolate completely melted, let cool for 10 +/- minutes,

Step 12:

then remove the marshmallow egg from the flour and dust it off, 

Step 13:

put it into the chocolate and using the spoon, completely cover it with chocolate. 

Step 14:

Drip off as much chocolate as possible then, place it on parchment paper and let the chocolate set.

Step 15:

Once the chocolate has set, re-melt a little chocolate and use it to attach the sugar flowers to the egg for decoration. 

Step 16:

If you want buy a little container of gel frosting and write the name of each person the egg is intended for on the egg.  Place on a nice serving dish and it is ready for Easter.  Enjoy!

    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!
