Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows

These are the perfect little treat to make with the kids after school!  They’re super-easy to assemble, and kids love them.

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows  Adapted from Yum! Magazine for Kids

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1 Tablespoon shortening

Graham Cracker crumbs – plain, or mixed with melted butter and sugar (as you would for a pie crust)

Pretzel sticks

Melt the chocolate chips and shortening together in the mircowave for about 1 minute.  Stir until completely melted – don’t overheat or you’ll burn the chocolate!

Stick a pretzel stick into the marshmallow.  Dip the bottom of the marshmallow in the chocolate and then in the graham cracker crumbs.

Set on a parchment lined cookie sheet and place in the frig for about 15 minutes, or until chocolate sets.
