Set out some wax paper

Dip the marshmallows, one by one into the melted chocolate – until the top half is covered in chocolate

If you want…Let the excess chocolate drip off. I think it’s actually kind of pretty when the chocolate drips down the side of the marshmallow.

Immediately place it onto the top of the marshmallow – while the chocolate is still warm

Continue until you have your desired amount. Let dry to set


Best when served within a few hours of making them. The cherry tends to dry out otherwise.

If you plan on making these in advance, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a couple of days.
