Common Mistakes

Some common mistakes when making this recipe include:

  • Not letting the chocolate chips and coconut oil melt completely before dipping the marshmallows. This will result in a lumpy, uneven coating.
  • Trying to dip the marshmallows while the chocolate is still too hot. This will cause the marshmallows to melt and fall apart.
  • Not tapping off the excess chocolate before adding toppings. This will make the toppings stick to your fingers instead of the marshmallows.
