If you haven’t worked with melting chocolate before then, let me give you some pointers

Tips and Tricks on melting chocolate melts or chocolate bark…

  • if you are microwaving your chocolate – use a glass shallow microwave-proof bowl to heat the chocolate in
  • you don’t have to use all of the melts at once – pour some out and melt them. When you need more, just add more, and repeat
  • wax paper is a great tool in the kitchen when working with sticky chocolate – set anything chocolate covered on wax paper for easy transfer
  • silicone spoons or spatulas are wonderful for stirring sticky chocolate with
  • I like to place my chocolate melts into the microwave for 1 minute and stir until smooth. If necessary, I’ll add another 30 seconds in the microwave – but never more than that
  • if chocolate overheats – it becomes too difficult to work with. It thickens up and makes a big mess. You can add a little bit of coconut oil or lard (just a smidgen) to loosen it up but it will take longer to harden and will remain somewhat soft

Storing and Make-Ahead:

  • marshmallow pops should be stored covered in an airtight container at room temperature
  • these marshmallow pops when stored properly can be made up to a week in advance
  • do not store chocolate covered marshmallows  in the refrigerator as the condensation will impact the texture and flavor

Are you ready to make these cute delicious marshmallow pops? Let’s make sure you have everything you’ll need…

Ingredients
(for about 2 dozen pops)

  • paper straws – I love the rainbow paper straws that I found on Amazon. I’ll share a link for you, below. You might be able to find them in the cake aisle of your favorite craft store, as well.

Extra equipment you might need:

  • glass microwave-proof bowl
  • silicon spoon
  • wax paper

How do you make Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Pops?

the full instructions and images to help you are also in the recipe printable, below:

  • melt chocolate until smooth
  • place straws into marshmallows
  • set out wax paper
  • dip marshmallows into melted chocolate and spin until coated all of the way around (you don’t have to coat the entire length of the marshmallow. That is totally your call.)
  • let the excess drip off
  • immediately add sprinkles
  • place on wax paper to dry

Note *If you are making marshmallow pops that will be turned so the marshmallow is at the top – unlike mine in the image where the marshmallow rests on the counter, then you can use a styrofoam block to hold your marshmallows in. Just push the straw or lollipop stick that you used to make your pops into the block for drying and holding your creations
