They are a great bouquet for mom on Mother’s Day, but with these pastel colors, I think they are perfect for a baby shower, too.
How long can you store Chocolate Marshmallow Pops?
- you should be able to store marshmallow pops at room temperature and in an air-tight container for up to five days
- If you’ve completely covered the marshmallow in chocolate, you can extend that to a little more that time to at least one week – up to 10 days.
How do you display Chocolate Marshmallow Pops?

Finally, here are the instructions for making these Colorful Marshmallow Pops…Print
Making Beautiful Chocolate & Candy Marshmallow Lollipops – A Kid Friendly Thing To Do
(For 1 dozen Marshmallow Pops)
1 dozen Lollipop Sticks
12 Marshmallows – Standard Size
3 pastel colors of chocolate melts – Wilton is my preferred brand (it’s readily available at most stores and melts pretty consistently each time I use it)
*for my spring colored marshmallow pops, I used 3 colors – pastel blue, pink, and bright yellow
Floral Foam or a tall container of rice make great places to place marshmallows until chocolate has set up. They need to be upright as they dry.
- Sprinkles, M&Ms and candies for topping the marshmallows
- For my marshmallows I used, sugar sprinkles, white nonpareils sprinkles, M&Ms, and Wilton Chocolate Melting Wafers
- Place marshmallows on a lollipop sticks
Melting Chocolate –
- Use a separate bowl for each color of chocolate
- I only used about 1/3 of the chocolate from each bag. For making more than 1 dozen pops, you’ll want to adjust the amount of chocolate melted
- I like to pour chocolate melts into a glass microwave-proof bowl and microwave them for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. If needed, microwave an additional 30 seconds and stir until smooth
Dipping and Decorating:
- Dip the marshmallow in the melted chocolate
- Roll the marshmallow around until it is coated. You can either coat the entire marshmallow or just half of it, leaving some of the white marshmallow exposed
- Hold the marshmallow over the melted chocolate until most of the excess chocolate has dripped off
- While the chocolate is wet, place any of the candies on top of the marshmallow, carefully holding it upright so the candy doesn’t slide off
- Place into your floral foam or rice to dry
- That’s It – continue with each marshmallow
*chocolate melts typically come in 12 oz. bags. For 1 dozen pops, you will only need to use about 1/4 to 1/3 of each color
*store any unused chocolate melts in a zip tight bag at room temperature
Storing your pops:
- once the chocolate has hardened, you should be able to lay the pops down to store side by side in an airtight container – at room temperature – for up to 5 days
