Marshmallow Pops

I saw that my friend had made marshmallow pops with her daughter and thought, "I'm going to remember this! What a great, easy idea!"

At the schools here we are only allowed one "sweet treat" per class party. I never get signed up soon enough to get the sweet treat and usually bring apple slices or cheese. Boring. But I finally got to do a sweet treat! You could really do this for any occasion but we were making them for a Valentine's party so we used appropriate colors (otherwise I never could have convinced my 6-year-old to use pink!)

If you would like to you make your own marshmallow pops here is what you will need:

Lollipop sticks
Chocolate chips
Marshmallows (we used the strawberry marshmallows in addition to the white because they were pink and it was Valentine's)
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

This was so easy! First we stuck all of our marshmallows with lollipop sticks. Then we melted our chocolate at low heat over the stove so as not to burn it (burnt chocolate = yuck!) Next we dipped the tops of our marshmallows in the melted chocolate and then into our sprinkles. Finally, we set them on the parchment paper for the chocolate to harden.

When they are all dry you have these cute little marshmallow pops!

What did I tell you? Super easy! And let me tell you . . . they were a hit at the class party! Every kid loved them! Because with marshmallows and chocolate, what's not to love?

  13. These look so good. A much easier alternative to cake pops. I am a new follower from Funky Polka Dot Giraffe. I hope you'll stop by.

  14. Wow those are so easy and much easier than cake pops. My 4 year old could make her own. Were planning this for valentines day.


  15. Great idea and so simple too, I'll have to try this with my 3yr old tomorrow.
    I came across this post on The Imagination Tree.
    I'm just new to the world of blog and I have to admit it's quite addictive, so many great ideas.
