Chocolate and Caramel Dipped Marshmallows –just like my favorites from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory–make an easy, delicious no-bake treat!
On Mainstreet in my hometown (shout-out to the beautiful Park City, Utah!) there’s a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory that we wouldn’t miss indulging on whenever we were there. I usually always ordered the Apple Pie Caramel Apple–complete heaven–until a friend introduced me to their chocolate and caramel dipped marshmallows.
It sounded a little boring to me at the time. A marshmallow dipped in caramel and chocolate–big deal, right? Well, I was speechless after the first bite. Talk about the tastiest little treat, ever! Such an awesome combination!
So, of course I had to go and make them at home. I’ve made them a few times since–usually whenever we’re craving a simple, easy treat. Bonus that they’re no-bake and only take a few minutes! I love to enjoy them as they are, but we also often eat them sandwiched between honey graham crackers. It’s like a no-cook s’more. Delicious!
