Chocolate-Coated Marshmallow Treat
My New Year's resolution is to make better tasting and better looking treats for our guests. Almost a month after I started my work at the resort, bakery/pastry/confectionery-related duties were handed down to me including the production of turn down desserts. I was provided with a recipe which I followed for months. It was good for the first few weeks. I changed flavors for variation. I used assortment of colors for nice presentation. But towards the end of last year I got bored of the stuff I made. It was the same recipe over and over again. Then came the holiday season. I was commissioned to make holiday treats for all events at the resort. What a relief! I was hoping to get a challenging role and it came right in the moment when I needed a break from making boring desserts.
These chocolate -covered marshmallows marked the start of my newly revised turn down dessert recipe.
These marshmallows are filled with chocolate and berry fillings. I skewered each piece with a barbecue stick. I used a combined semi sweet and bitter dark chocolate. I melted the chocolate over a saucepan of simmering water. I dipped marshmallow into the melted chocolate and laid it on a paper liner. I garnished it with multicolored jimmies. I put it in the fridge for the chocolate to set.
