Chocolate-frosted marshmallows/fruit on a stick
Your kids will enjoy helping with this recipe - and they'll be more than happy to eat the product of their labors afterwards. This is a great item for a kids' Christmas party, as well.
15-20 large marshmallows
6 oz. semisweet chocolate
red and green sugars
cookie sheet or platter
Place a piece of waxed paper on cookie sheet or platter. Stick a toothpick into each marshmallow.
Heat the chocolate in a double boiler (or a smaller saucepan placed inside a larger saucepan of water if you don't have a double boiler) until melted. Take each marshmallow by the stick and dip in chocolate. Then pass it off to a kid who will then thoroughly roll it in red or green sugar.
Put the marshmallows on the cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator for about 4 hours.
Sliced bananas or other fruit of your choice may be substituted for the marshmallows.
