Easy Valentine Marshmallow Pops

I have a major sweet tooth, and as such I tell my sweetie every year that I don’t want flowers, but a yummy treat! I love flowers, they are beautiful, but they die so quickly and they can be very expensive, too. For a fun alternative bouquet to share with your sweetheart, whip up a batch of Easy Valentine Marshmallow Pops! This easy to make treat is also perfect for parties and as a classroom treat!

Valentines Day Marshmallow Pops



You will need:

To make your pops, start by putting a lollipop stick into your marshmallows, stopping before the stick comes through the top of the marshmallow. Then, just stick your marshmallows in the freezer for 10 minutes to protect them from the heat of melted chocolate.

Next, you’ll melt your chocolates. Pour your candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 second intervals stirring between each heating until all of the candy melts are completely melted and smooth. Now, you can add food coloring to some or all of your melted chocolate, if desired.

Pick out a variety of fun colored sprinkles and pour the sprinkles into small bowls ready to use for dipping your pops into. Now that you have all your supplies ready, grab your marshmallows out from the freezer and start by dipping a marshmallow into the candy melt covering about 2/3rds of your marshmallow in chocolate. Then, immediately dip or sprinkle with decorating sprinkles. Your chocolate will harden and hold your sprinkles into place.

Now, just place your first finished pop standing upright in a glass jar and continue on to do the rest of your marshmallow pops. Don’t let any of the pop touch each other until they have completely cooled and hardened. You can place your pops in the fridge to speed up the cooling process.

Once the pops are hardened, place in small plastic treat bags and tie with your choice of ribbon or leave as a bouquet.
