Caramel Marshmallows, Oh My!

I found these GIANT campfire marshmallows at the Christmas Tree Shoppe and had to buy them. I don’t even like marshmallows, but they were just huge!  So I dipped them in some melted caramel, let it harden and then dipped in some melted dark chocolate.

Some I just dipped in the chocolate because the caramel was a royal pain for the kids with sprinkles!

And here is my first attempt at peanut butter eggs!  I can’t believe I’ve never made them before! So easy!

And my Treat Hutch is nearly complete!  I’m going to take the peeps sacks off and fill them ahead of time and put little name tags on them, but other than that it’s good to go!

The peeps topper in the last picture is from Itsy Bitsy Paper and I just love it!
Tomorrow is cleaning day!  And shopping for last minute basket fillers, buying a ham, making jello cookies, a key lime pound cake and finishing up the eggs/prizes for the adult egg hunt!  I host Easter every year and we’re up to 42 people!  Yeehaw!!

  3. Wow! Look at that! Everything looks fantastic! Those pb eggs…oh my…do they EVER look delicious! Happy Easter!

  4. Okay I’m supposed to be on a diet…but I have got to try those marshmallows Yum!! The treat hutch looks so cute, what a great job. Have a blessed Easter.

    • found some jumbo marshmallows and did the chocolate covered one, rolled them in crushed graham crackers or coconut, put them on a stick and took them to work, you’d have thought I worked with a bunch of 8 years olds, they loved them and the marshmallows were gone in a flash. Am definitely going to try the one dipped in caramel and then chocolate.

  5. I love, love, love the Christmas Tree Shops! Always a bargain, and you never know what you’re going to find!

    I love your Peeps goodies. Everything looks so tasty. May have to go out and buy some today to copy your great ideas!

    I’m stopping by from your guest post at Remodelaholic.

    Best,

  12. @Lori (All That Splatters)Hi Lori! I looked for an email address for you but couldn’t find one, so hopefully you come back to see this reply! I don’t make the caramel! It’s just a bag of caramel squares that I melt down over a double broiler! Nothing tricky to it! Thanks so much for visiting!

  16. I don’t see your peanut butter egg recipe anywhere on your blog & would love to know how you made those. I see others have requested as well & I didn’t see it?

  17. Found your marshmallows on Pinterest…

    I’ve been finding some of your wonderful posts on Pinterest but wonder why a warning page shows up saying that content is inappropriate or spam? Are you aware of this?

  18. You could also sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on the chocolate-dipped marshmallows… a la s’mores!

  19. @AndyThat’s the best kind of porn there is! : )

  20. These look delish. I sent this to one of my chef friends. I discovered this on Pinterest where I love to troll for Food Porn!

    I am in the middle of making these, and the caramel is stuck to the wax paper. Any suggestions on how to get them off the paper?

      If the caramel is sticking I think the best would be a cooking spray or teflon coated cookie tray or both. I am making these for my daughter’s baby shower. I will pin them on pinterest when they are done. It will be a while.

  29. It can affect you renting an apartment, getting a good cosigner while taking a loan so that you are credit worthy
    and there is a low risk of you defaulting on the loan.
    When you browse through the Internet, credit unions and your local car dealership and work from there.
    This option provides instant cash relief that allows you to know what services of Christian
    Debt Helps with poor credit score. So, lenders are clearly less interested in
    a customized car.
