Image Gallery: Souped-Up Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows

I did a post a couple of weeks ago for Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows with Strawberry Hats and loved them so much that I couldn’t help but wonder…what else could I put on top of chocolate-covered strawberries? Turns out, LOTS of stuff, as you’ll see below. I love these because they are very simple to prepare, but they are—quite literally—some serious eye candy. And because the topper possibilities are endless, you can easily make them work for any party theme…bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, etc. Choose your topper according to your color scheme! I tried lots of stuff…strawberry slices, shaved coconut, kiwi slices, halved raspberries, sliced crystalized ginger, dried mango and pineapple, assorted candies and sprinkles, crushed rock candy, shaved chocolate, and mini chocolate chips. Any other ideas out there? Please share in the comments! I had a lot of fun with these…hope you do too. (P.S. Stay tuned for some homemade versions for the Fourth of July. Coming soon!)
