When you coat the marshmallows, just dip each side into the sugar mixture you are using. Then tap off the extra sugar.
Coating Marshmallows with Tempered Chocolate
If you want to temper chocolate, you can dip the marshmallows in the tempered chocolate using a fork to balance the marshmallow on, or dip only one half of the marshmallow. Place the dipped marshmallows on a parchment-lined baking sheet and set it in the fridge for several minutes to help set the chocolate. Remove the pan from the fridge and store the dipped marshmallows in an airtight container away from sun, heat, and humidity.
Other Ways to Dress Up Marshmallows
You can skip the sugar coating and roll your marshmallows in chopped nuts, toasted or untoasted coconut, colored sprinkles, cinnamon sugar, mini chips, or anything else your heart desires. Be sure not to coat the marshmallows with the confectioners’ sugar mixture, because then the other coatings won’t stick.
Try dividing the marshmallow into two or more bowls and beat a different color of food coloring into each one, and then layer the marshmallows.
Make two or more flavors of marshmallows and layer them in the same pan.
