How long will Marshmallow Pops Last?

  • Marshmallow pops should be eaten within a few days. If the room is not hot, it’s ok to store marshmallow pops, in an airtight container at room temperature. If you live in a hot climate, you might want to store them in the fridge.

How long can you store Chocolate that has been melted in the refrigerator?

  • Chocolate covered treats can be stored in the fridge, but only for a day or two. Eventually the chocolate will react to the cold and start to speckle or will sweat from the cold and crack.

  • Cut 6 paper straws in half 

Making Football Marshmallow Pops

  • Push the straws into 12 marshmallows
  • Set out a large piece of wax paper for marshmallows to dry on

  • Use the bag’s instructions or, do what I do – I like to put them in the microwave for 1 minute and stir until smooth. Add 30 more seconds in the microwave (if needed)

Making Football Marshmallow Pops

  • Dip and roll the marshmallows into the brown melted chocolate

Making Football Marshmallow Pops

  • Push each marshmallow with melted chocolate into the coconut shavings and press down so coconut sticks to the bottom
  • Set on wax paper to dry
  • Once dry, melt the white chocolate melts
  • Place melted chocolate into the squeeze tube
  • Use melted white chocolate and squeeze tube to draw laces on each football

Making Football Marshmallow Pops

  • Let dry


  • If you have leftover melted brown chocolate, then keep going with the football pops – Maybe you can squeeze a few more pops out of the chocolate that you have
  • If your squeeze bottle chocolate hardens up, place it into a bowl of steaming water. The heat from the hot water should help it melt again. Better yet, have a hot bowl of water nearby to place the squeeze bottle in periodically – to keep the chocolate melted.
