I am making these as little goodies for Christmas.


I saw them at Cracker Barrel and thought wow I could easily make those and get many more for my money!!  So I bought all the supplies tonight...large marshmallows, chocolate sandwich cookies, and milk chocolate.  I have a few questions though...
1. How far ahead of time do you think I should/could make them (as I don't want to wait until the last minute...I'll be making cupcakes then =P)
2. Should I put them in goodie bags or a tin/box?
3. Dip cookie and marshmallow separate and then stick together or attach with a layer of chocolate and then dip?

I'm also asking over at the Bakespace forums =D

Looking at the picture, it looks like there is a layer of chocolate between the cookie and the marshmellow.  So I'm guessing you dip them seperate, then sort of glue them together with melty chocolate.

And, uh, thanks. Now I have to try and make these!

Those could be made up to a week ahead of time as long as they are stored airtight, i would suggest tins, they would be cute and keep the goodies from being crushed unwantedly. For dipping, i suggest doing them separate and then attaching them with a thin layer of melted chocolate, only because it would be easier to dip and not so awkward. That is such a great idea for goodies also!! very cute!!

you could probably make them 3-5 days in advance and keep em in the fridge Smiley... probably longer but i hate stale chocolate so do this to be on the safe side Smiley

i think they would look nice in goodie bags if we're talking about the cellophane wrapped with a bow type...otherwise i'd stick to a tin ^^

So I'm seeing dip separate then attach, store in a tin up to a week for freshness, could transfer to goodie bags for cuteness.

Oh and since it wasn't my idea I feel weird saying thanks to SeeMe and StrangeFruits haha.

Maybe, for storge (had some time t think about it, hee.)  you could store them in a tin, or tupperware, then when it came time for gibing them away,  you could put them in a little cellophane wrapped basket? Or gift bag? I only say this because, as the reciever of far too many cutsy tins, I have no idea what to do with most of them!

lol...i was thinking of this this morning and thought, man that would be so cute if you made a snow man out of the hostess snowballs (laid flat of course), took frosting and did the nose and buttons and stuff and then laid the hats all around him, like in the picture!! Smiley

I would actually stick them together with a little chocolate and then set them on a rack and pour chocolate over them.  You can catch the runoff on a baking sheet and remelt it for another pour.  I think they might look more finished that way.

And I would definately go with the tin. 

Let us know how it goes!
