I made these little gems the other night just as a practice run. I'd like to make more closer to Easter! Aren't they pretty?? I thought so! I can just imagine all the different ways I could make these for other holidays and celebrations! (Note to self: I need to buy more sprinkles!!!) I don't have an exact recipe to share with you for the marshmallow pops but hopefully seeing the photos will give you an idea! These are really very easy!!!
I used one bag of marshmallows.
You will also need lollipop sticks. I used the Wilton brand. Thread two marshmallows on each stick.
Melt about 3 cups of chocolate melting caps. ( I used about 2 cups of milk chocolate caps and then melted another cup or so of the white.) I used Peter's Westchester Caps from a local candy supply store. Wilton makes these as well and are available at Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, or Michaels. I melted the chocolate at 15-20 second intervals (stirring in between). Mine took a total of about a minute to melt completely. Dip marshmallows in chocolate and twist until they are completely coated in chocolate. Lay on waxed paper. Add the sprinkles of your choice (do this while the chocolate is melted). I dipped 3-4 and then added sprinkles and so on.
After the milk chocolate had dried a little, I added another color of chocolate drizzle! The store where I purchased my chocolate carries a variety of colors (so does Wilton). In my case, they are sold in little plastic bags (15-20 caps in a bag). I just put the whole bag in the microwave and melted in intervals. Once the chocolate was completely melted, I clipped the corner of the bag and drizzled on the pink chocolate!! Allow to dry completely! I stored the marshmallow pops in zip-loc bags. Enjoy!!
