I somehow ended up with a huge thing of white chocolate and nothing to do with it . . . I also ended up with leftover oreos, pretzels about to go stale, and some marshmallows. So you know what I did . . . I melted that white chocolate (per package instructions in the microwave) and covered EVERYTHING with it.
Apples: I tried an apple just to see. I wanted to see because I’m thinking about making poision apples for Halloween . . . and now I’m FREAKING out about poison apples. It was easy ( I held it by the stem and dipped – moved it around so it was totally covered – and set it on the foil to harden) and tasted delish!
Pretzels – if you like chocolate covered pretzels then these are really easy to make – I assumed, but had never done it before. It’s just what you imagine . . . dip it half way in and then put it on wax paper to harden a little. I let it harden about 10 seconds or so and then covered it in sprinkles and then let it harden the rest of the way. My only complaint is these bad boys are time consuming.
Marshmallows – RICH! oh my good golly these are so rich . . . but I like it like that. I did these the same way I did the pretzels – half in, 10 seconds, dip in sprinkles, and wait for it to harden. just be sure to keep your fingers near the top where you don’t want the chocolate to go. I want to try these with regular milk chocolate.
Oreos – these were my favorite – pretty obvious if you know my love of oreos. and honestly they were probably the easiest to make. the pretzels were time consuming and the marshmallows you had to keep a good grip on . . . but these I just dropped it in the chocolate, flipped it over with a fork, made sure it was covered, pick it up with the fork and set on wax paper. then after it hardened a bit I sprinkled it with love.
this was definitely my favorite baking hour (more like 20 minutes) spent in the kitchen in a long time! I can’t wait for the holidays so I can make them extra special.
