    1      bag           large marshmallows
                         Vegetable spray for coating molds
                         Cornstarch for dusting molds
                         COATING OPTIONS
    1      bag           chocolate chips   (6 ounces) -- melted with 1 tsp.
                         vegetable shortening
    1      cup           sugar -- tinted with food
                         coloring
      1/2  cup           freshly grated or canned coconut
      1/2  cup           nuts -- finely chopped
                         Mini chocolate chips -- unmelted
                         Candy sprinkles
 
 Over medium-low heat melt marshmallows, stirring constantly.  When mixture
 is melted, pour into molds or open cookie cutters that have been sprayed
 with vegetable spray and lightly dusted with cornstarch.  If using sugar,
 coconut, nuts, or mini-morsels, immediately sprinkle tops with them.  When
 mixtures have firmed slightly, remove molds or cutters and roll in more of
 the coating. If dipping, allow marshmallows to cool completely before
 dipping.
 
 TO DIP
 Melt chocolate pieces with vegetable shortening in a shallow dish in the
 microwave on 50 percent power for 4 minutes, stirring as needed.  Remove,
 and keep mixture warm over bowl of hot water. Dip marshmallows one at a
 time, using fork to allow mixture to drip back into bowl. Dry until set on
 wire rack.
 
 Makes 16 2-inch figures.
