How Long Will Chocolate Covered Marshmallows Last?

  • Chocolate-covered marshmallows sitting on the counter at room temperature should last at least one week. A word of caution: If there is a large fluctuation in temperature, chocolate tends to get a little discolored.

How Should I Store Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows?

  • Store chocolate-covered marshmallows at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or longer

How far ahead can I make chocolate covered marshmallows?

  • Chocolate covered marshmallows are easily made 1 week in advance. However, be careful to store them at room temperature. The moisture and cold air will discolor the chocolate.

Here’s how you can make fun Marshmallow Ghosts…

  • wax paper
  • Spoon
  • glass microwave proof bowl


  • 12 Marshmallows – large but not jumbo
  • 12 oz. White Melting Chocolate or bark
  • 24 Mini chocolate chips


  • Melt chocolate melts in the microwave – I like to place the melts into a bowl and microwave for 1 minute then stir until smooth. Add 10 – 30 more seconds if needed
  • Place marshmallows sitting upright and spaced out on wax paper
  • Spoon white melted chocolate over the top of each marshmallow and let the chocolate start to harden (you may have to coax it to drizzle down the sides)
  • After the chocolate has cooled off, but before it is completely hard (still soft and a little melted) push the 2 mini chocolate chips into the ghosts (push them in – flat side out)


Store chocolate marshmallows on the counter for up to 2 weeks – you can use an airtight container, but it’s not necessary

    This is adorable! I’ve been looking for a Halloween treat to make with my kids and they will love this. We’ve made marshmallow snowmen before, but not ghosts!
