DIY Chocolate Dipped Gifts: pretzels, candy canes and marshmallows

Pretzels dipped in Coco Candy Melts and then topped off holly berry sprinkles are not only delicious with their crunchy and sweet texture, but they are easy on the wallet to make.

Kids of all ages love marshmallow treats.  Make a tray of them or wrap each one with a square of cello and tie with a bow.

Peppermint and Coco Candy melts are a sweet treat.  Make mini canes and sprinkle them on a cookie platter.

It is time to get dipping!

I used Wilton Dark Coco candy melts. The Dark coco has a richer flavor!

You can melt the coco chips in a microwave or in a candy melt pot.  Be sure to follow the package instructions.  Stir the chips as they melt.

Turn the pot to warm after the chips have all melted.

Dip each pretzel into the melted coco chips.

Dip each one into sprinkles.  The sprinkles above are Betty Crocker Holly Berry.

Place each one on a sheet of parchment paper.

Press a paper lollipop stick (Wilton) in the top center of a marshmallow.

Dip half way into the melted coco chips.

Dip into the Holly Berry Sprinkles.

Place on parchment to set.

To make the candy canes, just dip the end into the melted coco chips and place on parchment to cool.


 Thanks for the phrase couldn’t think of any other way to describe this fierce blonde! Welcome to London Madelene (wish you hadn’t brought the weather with you!)...
We’ve had the gorgeous Madelene in town for the last couple of weeks and we can safely say this girls feet have not touched the ground...well with a face and body like that who’s surprised!

I ♥ NYasha

Cast your mind back to Elite Model Look 2009 and you will remember the divine Nyasha who stole our hearts and walked away with first place in the UK final last August...

Following a dream first season of shows back in September (two words...Louis Vuitton) we sent Nyasha over to fashion Mecca, New York City to show the Americans why Elite London girls are truly the best in the business...and clearly they agree! We spotted our girl front and centre at a presentation for  Calvin Klein, looking every inch the poster girl for the iconic US brand.
