Marshmallow Reindeers

 

Large marshmallows
200g / 7oz dark chocolate broken into small pieces (or chocolate chips)
1 tablespoon of Sweet Almond Oil
Pretzels
Jaffas, M&M, or Smarties
A handful of white chocolate pieces/chips, or 100’s & 1000’s
Lolly pop sticks/straws

1

  1. Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave until it’s fully melted. Each microwave is different, and you don’t want to burn it, so go for shorter time (10-20 seconds on low setting) and repeat heating.
  2. Add Sweet Almond oil, slowly stirring until it’s a slightly thinner consistency. Without this step, the marshmallows will have bumpy globs where the chocolate drips down instead of a smooth finish.
  3. Break pretzels in half.
  4. Dip the marshmallow into the chocolate until it’s fully coated. Place on non-stick baking paper.
  5. Insert the pretzels on the marshmallow. The melted chocolate works as the glue as it hardens.
  6. Add half a jaffa, M&M or Smartie as the reindeer nose.
  7. Leave them for a while until the chocolate fully hardens.
  8. Melt the white chocolate in microwave. Place in a piping bag. Dot to make reindeer’s eyes. Alternatively, use white sugar bits from 100’s and 100’s for tiny eyes.
  9. When the chocolate sets insert a lolly pop stick or a straw into the side of the marshmallow, just slightly off centre. Dress with ribbon or tinsel.
