Melt the chips in the microwave. Pour some into the bowl of a spoon. Press some marshmallows into the chocolate. Add a dash of sprinkles. Let sit overnight in a cool place. These are easier to make one at a time so the chocolate won't harden before you can press the marshmallows in.
Variation: use white chocolate, crushed candy canes, and chocolate sprinkles.
This is a good way to use up leftover bits of this and that. Put several in a plastic bag and tie with a pretty ribbon. Makes a nice little gift by itself or with a coffee mug.
Source: This recipe is my own. I came up with it one night when I needed some little Christmas gifts and had nothing but little bits left in my kitchen.

I've seen a similar version of this before. Can used crushed candies such as red hots or cinnamon discs, butterscotch or peppermint hard candies, instead of the marshmallows. Can be used for coffees, hot chocolate, etc. Wrap & decorate for whatever the occasion. Give as gifts or sell at bake sales.
