I was drooling when I came upon this recipe on One Charming Party! Caramel, chocolate and marshmallow.....what more could you want and super easy!!! You should also peruse their site!!! They specialize in children's parties and have thrown some a-ma-zing parties, including one my favorites, a super cool art gallery party!!! It would be great for a girl or boy!
Here's the recipe, as written by One Charming Party:
Ingredients: regular sized marshmallows, caramel (homemade or store bought), chocolate, crushed candy canes (optional), sucker sticks
Directions: Make or melt your caramel. I use a double boiler on the stove top to melt caramel. While you are waiting for the caramel to melt, stick a sucker (lollipop) stick into the marshmallows. Set out a sheet of parchment or wax paper or the new non-stick aluminum foil. Once the caramel is melted dip each marshmallow into the caramel, covering completely. Place each dipped marshmallow onto the parchment or whatever you’re using. Allow the caramel marshmallows to cool completely. You can crush your candy canes now, if you haven’t already. Once cooled (this can take up to a half an hour) melt the chocolate. You can do this in a double boiler on the stove top or in the microwave. Dip each marshmallow into the chocolate 2/3 of the way then immediately roll the ends in crushed candy canes. Let cool on the parchment, wax paper or non-stick aluminum foil.
