Marshmallow BOO Bites!

Marshmallow BOO Bites!

Age: 12 months plus
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: NO COOK!
Yield: 10 marshmallow bites
Food storage: refrigerator-friendly
Serving: self-feed, family friendly

  • 10 large marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate baking chips
  • 20 mini chocolate chips


Using toddler-safe scissors, cut the top right and left corners of each marshmallow off to create a point so that it forms the shape of a ghost. Set aside.

Melt the chocolate baking chips in a microwave-safe bowl, in 30 second increments, stirring in between (about 2-3 times)*.

Using a paintbrush, make a chocolate “dot” in place of where the ghost’s eyes will go, then gently press a mini chocolate chip over each dot until secure. Next, dip the paintbrush back into the chocolate and paint a fun/spooky/silly “mouth” onto the ghost. Repeat with the rest of the BOO bites. Get creative! Don’t forget to tag us using the hashtag #whatagoodeater so we can see what you and your kids come up with!

*Tip: if the chocolate starts to thicken too much as you go, simply microwave again for 25 seconds to thin it out.
