Frugal Fun: Create Your Own Marshmallow Bar

My son has multiple food allergies but that doesn’t mean he can’t have fun snacks and treats, it just takes a bit more creativity. This weekend, I decided to try something new! I melted Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate then, let the kids dip marshmallows into the chocolate. I had a muffin tray full of toppings to choose from that they were able to dip their chocolate covered marshmallows into and enjoy.

It’s fun and it was super delicious!

For us, I chose allergy free sprinkles, chocolate, smarties and other toppings that were safe for my son’s food allergies. But, you can get as creative as you’d like! We even threw some jellybeans in there too.


  • 1 Bag of Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate (or whatever brand you prefer)
  • 1 Bag Large Marshmallows
  • Lollipop Sticks (I got these at Hobby Lobby)
  • Toppings (sprinkles, smarties, mini chocolate chips, etc)

Directions: I think it is much easier to put the toppings in a muffin tin than to sit them out on the counter. This kept the mess contained so first, assemble your toppings. Then, melt the chocolate for 2 minutes in the microwave. While it is melting, place the large marshmallows onto lollipop sticks. Once the chocolate has melted, you can dip your marshmallows into the chocolate then the toppings. YUM!
