Quick, Cute Marshmallow Chocolates

We don’t do Valentine's day with expensive cards and chocolates, or fancy meals, flower or gifts. But I do like to do hide a treat in everyone's lunchbox as a little extra "mum loves you" surprise.  This year I've made marshmallow flowers and I'll put a bouquet of three in everyone's lunchbox on Thursday for their special Valentine's treat.

I saw the idea on Pintrest, and they were so pretty and so easy I had to try them. Of course I also modified the instructions to suit Australian ingredients and my budget.

You'll need:
1 packet Coles pink and white marshmallows (or use your favourite brand, as long as they are large marshmallows)
1/2 cup white choc chips
1/2 cup pink cake sprinkles or hundreds and thousands
Pink straws

Step 1. Melt the chocolate over a double boiler (or in the microwave).

Step 2. Stick a straw into the bottom of each marshmallow.

Step 3. Dip each marshmallow into the chocolate and then roll it in the sprinkles.

Step 4. Place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and put into the fridge to harden.

Step 5. Tie three marshmallow flowers into a posy with pink or red ribbon.

You could also give single flowers, wrapped in cellophane or put a bunch of pretty marshmallow flowers into a bud vase and use as a table centrepiece for a special Valentines day dinner.
