The Partiologist: Chocolate Covered Caramel Marshmallow Hearts!

Chocolate Covered Caramel Marshmallow Hearts!

Did you know you can buy a GIANT marshmallow?  Like bigger than any marshmallow you've ever seen?  You're probably wondering why anyone would want to buy one.  Not me, because I'm the one who sees a gazillion ways to use it.  But I was hesitant...would it even taste good? And I am happy to report, YES it tastes great!  And tastes GREAT-ER when topped with caramel and covered in chocolate.

Chocolate Covered Caramel Marshmallow Hearts!

Yes, by adding the chocolate and caramel, the marshmallow was amazing!
 
Maybe because I used homemade caramel?
 
And because I sprinkled it with love.

Don't worry, you don't need to make homemade caramel, you could use a Caramel Apple Wrap.
 
This was the inside, take a peek before it disappears!
 
And by disappear I mean gobbled up in the taste kitchen.
 
Did you notice the shape of the heart?
 
I had trouble deciding, because I have so many heart cutters.
 
This was just right don't you think?
 
 
Here's a slide show...
 
 
And if you want a quick look...
 
I started with a pan of soft homemade caramels.
 
Premade Caramel Apple Wraps are always an option.  (Amazon link below)
 
Rolled them out about 1/4" thick.
 
Cut the caramel into a heart shape with a cookie cutter.
 
Cut several hearts and set aside.
 
Time to get out that GIANT marshmallow!
 
Dip the cutter in powdered sugar and cut the marshmallow into hearts.
 
Top each heart with Caramel.
 
Place the caramel topped marshmallow hearts on a baking rack.
 
Next melt the milk chocolate.  (Using the Wilton melting pot works perfectly!)
 
Spoon the chocolate over the heart, covering the sides, letting the chocolate drip below onto parchment paper.
 
Lift the chocolate heart off the rack, onto another sheet of parchment paper to dry.
 
(After it dries, you can then dip the bottom of the heart in chocolate, optional).
 
Fill a candy bag with chocolate and snip the end.
 
Drizzle chocolate back and forth across the heart.
 
Sprinkle it with love and make the world taste good!
 
Have a bite!

    2. Is the marshmallow sheet available in stores or do you have to order it on line? Saw it on Amazon for $12!! LTD has it for $4.99 but once you add shipping it would be expensive.
