Valentines Day Marshmallow Pops

While surfing for Valentine's Day ideas for the kids, I found these cute Marshmallow pops. Mr. J and I decided to give them a try and this is how they turned out.

What you will need:

- large marshmallows
- lollipop sticks
- candy melts (various colours of your choosing)
- sprinkles or other edible garnishes

Step 1: 
gather all your ingredients

Step 2:
melt your candy melts (My preferred method is using a double boiler; you can use the microwave but be very watchful as it doesn't take long to scald)

Step 3:
insert sticks into bottom of marshmallows

Step 4: 
carefully dip the marshmallows into the melted candy melts, 1 at a time; gently tap the marshmallow on the side of dish to get rid of the excess

Step 5:
roll the coated portion of the marshmallows around in the garnishes (I found edible glitter worked well and also the tiny round sprinkles)

Step 6: 
allow to set for a little while - using a Styrofoam block or a cake pop stand would work well (I placed ours on a sheet of parchment paper)

step 7:

**Mr. J and Mr. K really enjoyed them, I found them to be WAY too sweet...but they are definitely cute and would be adorable added to a valentine's card!

  1. Love these! I love little food crafts that kids can help with. Thanks for linking up to my Family Fun Friday!

  2. These are just like the marshmallow pops I made for Zackary's Super Mario Bros. party except I stuck quartered mini marshmallows into the candy coating to turn them into mushrooms. Lol I think I have some red wafers left; I'll have to make these for the boys this Valentine's Day!

    1. those would be perfect for a mario theme! I am sure the kids loved them!

  3. cute idea, i bet the would be sweet, but also super delicious too!

    1. thanks - it was tasty, but 1 was enough for me!

  4. Yum and fun! Look how your little guy is enjoying the marshmallow pops!


  5. Those look delicious, great idea, marshmallows instead of cake pops :)
