Why You’ll Love This Recipe 🐥

  • It’s simple, cute, and quick to make. All you have to do is skewer some marshmallows, dip in melted Candy Melts or chocolate, and decorate to your liking.
  • You can change up the designs year-round! I decorated my marshmallow pops as cute white ducks and yellow chicks for Spring, but you can always decorate them differently. For example, you can make pink/red ones with sprinkles for Valentine’s Day, spooky ones for Halloween, etc.!
  • The flavors can be versatile, too. Try different flavored marshmallows, coatings, or add other toppings. You can always add crushed nuts, drizzle chocolates, and more.

Ingredients

To make these marshmallow pops, you’ll need the following ingredients:

Ingredient Notes

  • Regular-sized marshmallows are best for this recipe, especially if you’re using 4- or 6-inch treat sticks. If you’d like to make jumbo marshmallow pops, I suggest getting larger treat sticks.
  • I used Candy Melts to coat my marshmallows! Use as many colors as you want for your design. You can also use white chocolate chips and dye them with oil-based food coloring. However, if you don’t have it on hand, you can always stir in 1-2 tsp neutral oil (canola, vegetable) to the melted chocolate so it comes back together.
  • For the simple flower design pictured in the next section, I used white and pink sugar pearls.

How to Make Marshmallow Pops

Recipe Tips

  • Reheat your Candy Melts/chocolate as necessary! I used my Wilton Candy Melting Pot to keep everything in liquid form the entire time I was working.
  • Prop your treats up in a stand to let them harden. If you’re not using a stand, I recommend lining a tray with wax paper, then laying the marshmallow pops on top.

Storage

Keep marshmallow pops in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Equipment

  • microwave-safe bowls, for melting chocolate/candy melts; or use Candy Melting Pot
  • silicone spatulas
  • toothpicks for decorating
  • tweezers for adding sugar pearls or sprinkles

Ingredients

  • 15 regular-sized marshmallows
  • Candy Melts colors of your choice! can sub chocolate chips
  • oil-based food coloring if you want to dye your candy melts/chocolate
  • sprinkles/sugar pearls

Instructions
 

  • Skewer each marshmallow using lollipop/treat sticks.
  • Add Candy Melts to microwave-safe bowls. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between with a silicone spatula, until fully melted. I like to work with one color at a time.
    You can also use a Candy Melting Pot (linked in notes) and follow manual instructions.
  • Dip marshmallows in melted Candy Melts, swirling to ensure the entire marshmallow is covered. Gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl to get rid of excess Candy Melt coating.
  • If decorating with sprinkles, add while the coating is still wet. Otherwise, prop the marshmallow pop up on your cake pop stand until the coating hardens.
  • Use a toothpick dipped in Candy Melts to draw designs on the hardened coating. If making a chick or duck like I did, use white/yellow for the tufts of hair on top, orange for the beaks, brown for the eyes, and pink for the blush.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Storage: Keep marshmallow pops at room temp in airtight container for up to 5 days.
  • Oil-based food coloring: If you don’t have oil-based food coloring, then the chocolate will seize/become lumpy. To counter this, stir in a tsp of neutral oil (canola, vegetable) at a time, until it becomes smooth again.
