Valentine Marshmallow Pops
I love the way the chocolate hangs off of the marshmallow. It reminds me of an ice cream hot fudge sundae. So cute!
You can really create several varieties with different types of toppings. I used sugar crystals, candy, and sprinkles as my toppings.
How long do Marshmallow Pops last?
- You should eat marshmallow pops relatively soon after making them. They should last about 3 days at room temperature. You can wrap them in individual marshmallow pop bags to keep them extra fresh, but it is not necessary.
How do you get sprinkles to stick to marshmallows?
- You can use chocolate as a glue to stick sprinkles to. Sprinkles of all types will stick to melted chocolate. Sugar crystals will stick to wet marshmallows. Simply dip the marshmallow into a cup of fresh water and cover in sugar crystals to decorate
Tips and Tricks for making Chocolate Covered Marshmallows
- Use fresh marshmallows – an opened bag of marshmallows will go bad quickly. They will stick together or harden
- Always use a fresh bag of chocolate melts – They also will go bad after a while. Old chocolate melts will not melt correctly
- You can use chocolate almond bark, chocolate melts or chocolate chips
- *If you use chocolate chips, make sure you temper the the chocolate after it is melted – simply keep some chips out of the melting bowl. When you have melted the chips, add the chocolate chips that you kept aside to the melted chips and stir them in
- Use a small glass microwavable proof bowl – using a small bowl will give you a deep pool of melted chocolate to dip into. If your bowl is too wide the chocolate will be shallow and you’ll have to get creative to cover the marshmallow
