4th of July Marshmallow Pops

4th of July - Marshmallow Pops - Free Party Printables

These are marshmallow pops with a glamorous story. They are actually somewhat famous.

What do you bring when attending a Fourth of July party hosted by woman with a New York Times best selling cookbook? Yes, you guessed it. Glimmering goodies.

I made these for Ree who is a great cook, and a very well-known one at that. I wanted to impress her, to dazzle her with my most favorite cake ever, but then remembered I was in my little tiny home town. My dazzle was all a frazzle. Things are much slower where I come from. Grocery stores close at dinner time.

With little time to spare and some lollipop sticks I brought from Dallas, I headed to the store to see what I could come up with. Since all I could find were basic red and blue sprinkles, that pretty much made up my mind. No yummy homemade recipe, but I could sure make something basic look pretty darn cute! Yes, I would dazzle her with my cuteness!!

As I walked toward the party with my dazzling desserts, not only did Daisy the cow (who thinks she’s a dog) come very near to get a peek at the cuteness, but a big group of children as well. They spotted the glimmering goods and sprung out of nowhere, bouncing off of trampolines and fences with hands a grabbing.

Ree saved my sugary treats by holding them high over her head and stashing them in her kitchen pantry to keep the kids out of them until dessert time. No wonder she cooks so much. I bet she has hidden sweets in her pantry plenty of times!

Good thing I had a plan for the adults too. Although I think these chocolate cake balls were gobbled up by the kids as well. As a matter of fact… I’m positive.

I was happy when the desserts came out later in the evening. They were gone in just a few seconds, but heck, they sure were cute!

Try them out at your 4th of July party and watch them disappear along with the fireworks.

4th of July- Fireworks - The Pioneer Woman

You’ll need:

  • Marshmallows
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • White Almond Bark
  • Red & Blue Sprinkles
  • A box, flowerpot or other fun container
  • Styrofoam (to hold the sticks)
  • 1-2 bags of Red Hots (for sprinkling over the styrofoam)
  • Ribbon or a Bandana (optional for decoration)
  • Free Printable Tags (just because they are cute)

Directions

  1. Cover a cookie sheet with foil or wax paper.
  2. Melt the almond bark in the microwave for a minute. Stir until it’s creamy.
  3. Dip the lollipop stick into the melted almond bark and stick into a marshmallow.
  4. Dip the marshmallow into the melted almond bark. Tap it a bit on the edge of the bowl until it’s all even.
  5. Roll the marshmallow into a dish of sprinkles until covered.
  6. To make the flag versions, don’t put the lollipop stick in first. Use a toothpick or two. After covering both ends with the different colors, push the stick into the marshmallow.
  7. Stick into the styrofoam container, then cover with red hots.

Super easy and super cute!
