Need a quick treat for a shower or party? Marshmallow pops are cheap, quick & easy!
My friend and I made these this week in about half an hour. We got 25 party favors which doubled as baby shower table decor for $12!
What you need:
- 1 Bag of Jumbo Marshmallows (approx $3.00)
- Wilton Candy Melts (approx $3.50)
- Paper Stripey Straws ($4.00)
- Some toppings (sprinkles, candy, coconut, or other colors of candy melts)
- Food-safe bags to cover them ($2.00)
Then put them in the freezer for 10 minutes.
By freezing them, the sticks stay ‘stuck’ better, and the melting candies will harden faster!
While they were freezing, I found a box and used a screw driver to poke holes in it so I could stand the pops up as they cooled so they didn’t get a “flat edge” and so I could work quickly before the candy hardened.
Next, melt the melting candies using one of the manufacturers suggestions
Then dip the marshmallows in. If you are using sprinkles or other toppings, immediately put them on before the candy hardens. Then set them in the “box stand” until they harden! If you are using additional melting candies to drizzle, add them once the first color hardens! I used Wilton’s Candy Decorating Bags to drizzle pink on top.
Wasn’t that easy?
