Marshmallow trees recipe


The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to try Marshmallow trees Recipe. Enjoy our collection of wonderful Christmas kids gifts and learn how to make Marshmallow trees. 

Makes
8 trees

Equipment
You will need 8 paddle-pop sticks

Ingredients

24 mega marshmallows (see note)
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
10 to 20 drops green food colouring
1 1/2 cups white choc melts

Method

Line a large, flat baking tray with baking paper. Thread 3 marshmallows, pointed side up, onto each paddle-pop stick. Press last marshmallow on to cover top of stick.

Place coconut in a plastic bag. Add 10 drops food colouring. Rub coconut (through outside of bag) to mix colouring evenly. Add more colouring if desired.Spread coconut over a small plate.

Place choc melts in a heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on MEDIUM (50%) for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, or until melted and smooth, but not hot.

Using a pastry brush, brush chocolate over marshmallows (hold sticks over bowl to catch drips). Don't make it too thick or the chocolate will run. Roll marshmallows in coconut, sprinkling to coat. Carefully lay marshmallow trees on prepared tray. Allow to set. Gift wrap or serve.

Notes

If only regular-sized marshmallows are available, you will need 32. Thread 4 marshmallows per paddle-pop stick.
