Easter Egg Marshmallow Pops & Free Printable Tags
by Matthew Mead
A fun Easter treat means something sweet embellished with something even sweeter. In my new book Flea Market Finds with Matthew Mead we share a wonderfully easy vintage Easter celebration but I wanted to team with Amy to bring you one more great idea.
Our Easter egg marshmallow pops are made from Jet Puffed marshmallow eggs available at grocery stores. With some royal icing, lollipop sticks and some downloadable tags from Amy you can make these special treats for Easter baskets, party favors or the group of kids in your child’s youth group.
Make it a family event and have an Egg pop decorating party with ribbons, silk flowers and icing flowers from your local cake decorating supply store.
Here is what you”ll need:
- Jet Puffed egg shaped marshmallows
- Royal icing
- lollipop sticks
- icing flowers (such as these)
- pastry bags and tips
- vintage flowers
- Easter Tags from Living Locurto
- paper punch
- cellophane bags
On a clean work area arrange all of your supplies. Begin by placing lollipop stick into the wide end of the egg. Use royal icing in an array of spring colors to decorate the surface of the egg Easter designs. Or use a dot of royal icing to glue on pre-made icing flowers. Let egg decorations dry completely overnight.
Wrap lollipop sticks with seam binding or narrow ribbon. Tie a bow around the neck of the pop and embellish with silk flowers and foliage.
Print and cut out the Free Printable Easter Tags and punch hole in each and thread with twine.
Tie pops in bouquets and wrap in cellophane or place single ones at each place setting as a favor.
