Martha Stewart's Chocolate-covered
Marshmallow DreidelsI warned you yesterday to grab some chocolate chips or chocolate bars and today I deliver on the promise to help you use.
Unwrap said chocolate.
Share if you're more generous than me.
Devour and enjoy.
Kidding. But by all means, go out and just eat the plain chocolate if you so desire. Nothing wrong with that.
If you do have a little will-power, however, make these kitschy-yet-adorable chocolate dreidels. As soon as a friend posted the link to Martha Stewart's recipe, I knew they had to be mine. And with A LOT of help (thank you friends!!!), they were.
This is not to say that they are very difficult, or terribly time-consuming, but that they were being made just before/during a big party where I gave myself 40 minutes to make all the food. And that I tripled the recipe.
I'll post the recipe with our additions, tweak and commentary below. Feel free to reference Martha's recipe, linked above, if you a) want to enjoy the perfect photos and/or b) have more patience and craftiness than I do.
A note about ingredients: most marshmallows are not vegetarian as they contain animal-derived gelatin. I have heard about vegan marshmallows available through Whole Foods and natural food stores. I used vegan chocolate chips as the coating but even dark chocolate Hershey Kisses have milk and a vegan/non-dairy alternative does not seems available. I apologize to folks who are vegan/Kosher/dairy-avoidant and would love to hear if anyone creates or hears of an alternative.
And for the record, these are just eye candy (ha, ha, ha); they taste really good too. You know....because it's chocolate. Covering marshmallows. Enough Said.
