Halloween Marshmallow Pops Title
These marshmallow candy covered pops are super easy and quick to make. I wanted to figure out a treat that was fun and festive to bring to Wesley’s class Halloween party this year.  Usually I make cake pops–but those take more time then I know I’ll have come party time.  I was at a baby shower this weekend and my girlfriend made the cutest pink and white marshmallow pops.  I knew they would be perfect for Wesley’s class–so thanks for the inspiration Bridgett! These offer the same cuteness and yummy taste for the kids.

Ingredients:

1 package of large or jumbo marshmallows
Wilton’s Candy Melts in the color of your choice
Sprinkles
Candy eye balls
lollipop sticks or paper straws
Styrofoam
Festive container to present the finished pops
Decorative paper gift basket filler

First, attach the marshmallows to the sticks/straws by gently pushing the end through the center of the mallow.

I also like to poke the sticks/straws into the styrofoam in advance so that there is less chance of me making a mess doing it after the pops have been dipped in candy.

Microwave the candy melts according to the directions on the bag. Only use one color at a time, as the chocolate will begin to harden quickly. When dipping the marshmallow into the melted candy, use a spoon to help cover the marshmallow completely.  Apply sprinkles or additional candy pieces while still wet. Then place in the styrofoam to dry. These adorable candy eye balls can be found at Michaels.

I like to put any leftover melted candy in a bag, snip off the tip and apply candy stripes to some of the pops.

My bucket was too deep, so I filled the bottom with paper towels and a paper plate for additional support in order to prop the styrofoam up higher. Then cover the ugly foam with decorative paper. M&M candy would also be cute.

If your kitchen isn’t this messy afterwards then you aren’t doing it right 😉

So it was a total fluke that some of the pops looked like Mummies.  I simply used the white candy melts and was a bit more “sloppy” when dipping the marshmallow–which created the mummy look. They are my favorite.

    Those are so cute. Too bad my kid’s school has a strong no candy/sugary-treats rule. Might try and make something like that with my raw dates, oats and cocoa balls, or apricot balls.

    It’s truly very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I simply use world
    wide web for that purpose, and take the hottest information.
