Step 3

Slide the paper straws into one end of the marshmallows, gently, so you don't break the straw.

Note: If using lollipop sticks, dip the stick into chocolate first then insert into the marshmallow. Allow about 4- 5 mins for the chocolate to dry.

Step 4

Dip the marshmallows into the chocolate.

Gently shake off the excess.

Important Recipe Notes

Most of the time when melting candy melts, I melt them on high for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat this process, two to three times.

NOTE: Stirring in between is super important because they are melting even when they don't look like it.

Residual heat can also melt the candy – keep an eye on it when you stir it the last time until it's smooth.

Truffula Trees FAQs

Here are answers to common questions about this recipe.

How Many “Trees” Will This Recipe Make?

The recipe says that it will make 12-15 trees, but you can really make as many as you have the supplies to make. You will definitely have plenty of candy melts leftover.

How Do I Store Leftover Candy Melts?

Any left-over candy melts can be poured into a resealable zipper food storage bag immediately after use.

Lay flat and let the chocolate harden. It can be stored in that Ziplock for reuse. Just melt it like you did originally.

Aren't these treats adorable? I LOVE how cute they turned out!
