Fall Treat: White Pumpkin Marshmallows

white chocolate marshmallow pumpkinsWe’re so lucky to have one of my dearest “party gal” friends swinging by to show us how to make these tasty little treats that are perfect for fall parties! Kori of Paper & Pigtails is quite the designer and stylist. I’m in awe of her creativity and talent on a daily basis. These cute treats are so darling and will definitely be making my Thanksgiving spread. “I made these white pumpkin marshmallows for my monochromatic Thanksgiving table and loved how easy they were to create!” shared Kori.

For the ingredients you will need:

  • marshmallows {I used HUGE ones called Campfire Marshmallows}
  • lollipop sticks or pretzel sticks {thought of by a reader!}
  • white chocolate chips
  • cookie icing {it dries hard so you can hold the pumpkin by it’s stem!}

1) melt chocolate (I melted in the microwave in 20 sec intervals until it was melted)

2) insert a lollipop stick into the center of each marshmallow and all the way down

3) dip the marshmallows in the chocolate using a spoon to make sure they are covered completely, and to run down the sides to even out the chocolate

4) once they have been dipped (and allowed to dry just a little bit, use another lollipop stick (or toothpick) to run from the “stem” all the way down the side making indentations around the marshmallow. You will be able to see some of the marshmallow poke through, but it’s fine as it’s all white!

5) now run the stick under each marshmallow “pop” to “tuck in the chocolate” before it fully dry and move the marshmallow to a clean plate to finish

Almost there!

Now to add the stems!

6) using the chocolate cookie icing, run the icing up the base of the pop where it meets the marshmallow….continue to do this all around. It will run down a bit, but it’s fine…I think they look more realistic this way!

7) cut off the top of the lollipop stick, and place another drop of chocolate icing on top so the lollipop stick is covered completely!

Once the cookie icing dries, you can hold these sweets by the stem to eat…super cute and easy! And for those who like more “bling” , I covered some with clear crystal sprinkles and they were adorable!
