Marshmallows in the Embers:
Milk chocolate melting wafers, as required (a comfortable handful for each marshmallow)
Large, soft marshmallows, as required
Orange-and-black sprinkles left over from Halloween) or toasted, sweetened, short-thread coconut, as required
Heat chocolate melting wafers by placing a metal bowl over - not in - simmering water, stirring until partially melted. Remove from heat, continuing to stir until fully melted. Using one fondue fork per marshmallow (see Note), coat each marshmallow in chocolate, allowing excess chocolate to drip off. Stand fork upright in tall, straight-sided drinking glass until chocolate has partially set. Dip ends in bowl of sprinkles and allow chocolate to harden fully.
Note: Because this treat is intended for kids, don’t use skewers or sharp sticks - a fork is safer. These treats are rich and filling, so I suggest you offer no more than two per child.
