Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows

Happy Halloween!  Here are some spooky sweet treats to take to your Halloween party – these tasty tombstone marshmallows are heading to the office tomorrow.  I made double whats in the picture in about 30 minutes and could probably have made a zillion more if I had to feed a crowd.  They’re so simple and fun to make, require minimal ingredients, and because they are foods on sticks, are perfect for entertaining.  Bonus: the messier the chocolate, the better they look.  And you can dip into anything you like – I opted for Skor bits and toasted coconut.  Trick or treat indeed.
