I would really like to make some of these for my son's pre school class but I am unsure how to make them. I get you put the marshmallows on the stick and dip it in melted chocolate and then what? Stick it in styrofoam to dry? Lay on wax paper? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Either way works, but laying them on waxed paper is easiest. Just allow it to drip a bit, or gently scrape the edge as you pull it out of the chocolate. lay it on the paper and let it set completely. they will have a flat side, but that is normal.
I lay a kitchen towel down on the table and put my elevated cooling rack over it. I then run the stick of the dipped marshmallow man in one of the wholes. The towel keeps them from sliding around.
I stick mine in the styrofoam myself as I've not had good luck with the wax paper. I will be making some for my son's preschool this weekend too. Not sure what kind your doing but don't make the mistake I made first time I did this-I didn't let the orange dry completely before I put the green "tops" on them. They sort of looked a bit strange but I sent them to work with my husband and they didn't mind.
