I’m excited to share this super sweet pop recipe with one of my favorite goodies – marshmallows! Anything on a stick wins the cute food award but marshmallows rolled in yummy treats is at the top in my book. Take a look at the full instructions + recipe from the awesome Coupon Clipping Cook! Her site is full of recipes galore (with amazing pictures!) so head on over and check out her site. I think I’ll be making her Brown Sugar Honey Cinnamon Rolls + Chili Bacon Nachos (can we say tailgate food?) VERY soon.
Have you ever seen the GIANT ROASTER Marshmallows? They’re HUGE and oh so fun for making marshmallow pops! Certainly you can use regular marshmallows, but if you are able to find these big ones, they are quite tasty!
Use a variety of candies like nonpareils, sprinkles, coconut, crushed nuts, or graham cracker crumbs (think smores!) to create these tasty marshmallow fun pops! Let kids pick their favorite treats at a birthday party or host a holiday style party with holiday colors and sprinkles. The possibilities are endless for this sweet activity!
MARSHMALLOW FUN POPS: Serves 12 (courtesy of Coupon Clipping Cook)
Giant Roaster Marshmallows (12 ounce bag)
4 ounces of Vanilla Candy Coating (2 squares of Almond Bark)
4 ounces of Chocolate Candy Coating (2 squares of Almond Bark)
12 Lollipop Sticks
2 long sheets of Wax Paper
2 tablespoons assorted Non Pareil Candies
2 tablespoons assorted Dark Rainbow Candies
2 tablespoons White Sparkling Sugar Candies
2 tablespoons Pink Sparkling Sugar Candies
2 tablespoons Granola or Graham Cracker Crumbs
2 tablespoons Shredded Coconut
Insert a lollipop stick into each of the marshmallows stopping about 1/8 inch under the top of the marshmallow. Put each of the topping ingredients into a separate small bowl or plate. Lay out the sheets of wax paper on a large platter or two large plates. In separate bowls, melt the candy coating in a microwave on 30 second bursts making sure to stir between each 30 seconds. Roll the sides of a marshmallow in either the vanilla or chocolate candy coating. Have a small spoon handy to smooth out the coating on the marshmallow if it’s too thick in a particular area. Dip the top side of the marshmallow in the candy coating.
If you would like a multi-colored coating, use a spoon to drizzle the opposite color coating over the fully coated marshmallow (if you have multi-color coated marshmallows you may want to put the candy topping on just the top of the marshmallow so the multi-colored drizzles show up nicely on the sides). Dip the sides and top of the coated marshmallow into any one or more of the toppings.
Then lay the candy coated marshmallow top side down on to the wax paper and let cool. Repeat the steps above for the remaining marshmallows.
