Reindeer Marshmallow Pops

Last night the family hung out on the couch watching Fred Claus. I watched from the kitchen and surprised the kids with these. I am so tickled at how these turned out. As a matter of fact, when it was time for the kids to eat them…I winced a little. I had become attached to the cute reindeer in my kitchen. Here’s what I did to make these cuties.

  • Marshmallows – Large “not giant”
  • Chocolate Candy Melts – brown
  • Red M&Ms
  • Candy Eyes
  • Mini Candy Canes
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • wax paper


  • You’ll want to take the candy canes out of the bag and get them ready for the marshmallows
  • For each marshmallow pop, I placed two facing each other forming a heart, and set them out on the wax paper
  • Prepare your marshmallows by pushing the lollipop sticks into them
  • Use a large glass microwave-proof bowl to melt your chocolate melts – You can use the package directions
  • I like to heat mine for 1 minute, stir and add 30 more seconds – or until the chocolate when stirred is smooth
  • Dip the marshmallows into the chocolate and place it onto the ready-made antlers – look under the marshmallow to make sure chocolate is gluing the candy canes to the marshmallow – if not nestle it in more to give the candy some more glue
  • Add your red M&M to the top of the marshmallow
  • Once the chocolate has hardened – it should only take a few minutes use a toothpick to dip into the melted chocolate
  • Once you have a little chocolate on the toothpick, dot the marshmallow with the melted chocolate (right where your eyes will go) and place the candy eyes onto the melted dots
  • This will only take a few seconds to glue


  • Yields – you should be able to cover 24 marshmallows with one bag of chocolate melts 🙂
