Chocolate Marshmallow Pops
Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Pops – Dip your marshmallow in melted peanut butter chips, let it dry and dip again half way up in melted milk chocolate.
S’mores Marshmallow Pops– Dip in milk chocolate and roll in crushed graham crackers.
Cookies and Cream Marshmallow Pops – Dip in white chocolate and roll in crushed Oreos.
Turtle Marshmallow Pops – Melt caramel candies (let them cool a little bit before you dip the marshmallow or it will melt) dip the marshmallow in and let it cool, then dip it again in milk chocolate. Roll the bottom in crushed pecans.
Pink Marshmallow Pops
Pretty in Pink Marshmallows – You can’t go wrong with white chocolate and pink sprinkles for a girl’s birthday party or baby shower. I love the cupcake topper idea too!
Birthday Cake Marshmallows
Birthday Cake Marshmallow Pops are so cute! Dip the marshmallow in white chocolate and let it dry, then dip the top in chocolate (or use any color you would like). Add some sprinkles and put a real or candy candle on the top.
How do you make a candy candle?
A candy candle can be made by adding a strip of melted candy onto wax paper with a toothpick. Let the strip dry, then dot the top with a dap of the melted candy and sprinkle with yellow sugar sprinkles.
Get more detailed directions for making the candle on Icing Design’s blog.
Which one is your favorite? I’m thinking mine is a tie between the Cookies & Cream and Chocolate Peanut Butter. YUM!
How to Make a Marshmallow Pop
- Add candy melts to a small glass bowl or glass and microwave for 30-60 seconds. Remove and stir until melted. You might need to heat another 30-60 seconds until completely melted.
- Dip the end of a cake pop stick into the melted candy and poke into the marshmallow. Let candy dry.
- Hold the stick and dip the entire marshmallow into the melted candy. Place on parchment paper until dry.
- Optional: Decorate with sprinkles, caramel, chopped nuts, etc.
