valentines marshmallows

Easy to make marshmallow pops for Valentine’s Day

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 blocks of chocolate almond bark
  • regular sized marshmallows
  • paper straws or popsicles sticks ( 1 dozen )
  • sprinkles and/or candy for toppings

Extra equipment:

  • tall cylinder filled with candy or rice to hold pops in while drying
  • an alternative would be a Styrofoam block for holding pops
  • small glass microwavable proof bowl
  • *optional bowl of water for sugar crystals

Instructions

  • insert popsicle sticks into the center of the marshmallows
  • melt chocolate by microwaving it for one minute and stirring, add 30 seconds if needed and stir until smooth
  • dip marshmallow only about 1/4 of the way down the marshmallow
  • place in container to dry
  • *the chocolate will drip down and dry as it drips – drying time will depend on the temperature of your house – if it is humid the chocolate will not dry quickly

Decorating:

  • you should decorate each marshmallow immediately after dipping it
  • while chocolate is still wet add sprinkles or a candy to the top
  • *sprinkles may drip down with the chocolate, but that will only make it prettier

Sugar crystal decorating:

  • dip marshmallow into water and roll it into the sugar crystals to decorate

Notes

  • Keep at room temperature for up to 3 days
  • you can use marshmallow pop bags to keep them extra fresh, but it is not necessary
