I love fancy desserts… but I also love treats that are quick and easy! These Halloween Marshmallow Pops are super simple, and yet still so cute!
I’ve made this kind of simple treat before for Valentine’s Day and Christmas, so there is nothing super impressive here… just a cute and simple idea perfect for a Halloween party, or little school treats.
These marshmallow pops are fun to make, and if you have kids around I’m sure they’d love to help!
How to make Halloween Marshmallow Pops ~
White chocolate, or white/almond candy bark
Paper straws (available from Sweets & Treats and Hobby Lobby), or pop sticks
1). Press a straw (or pop stick) into a marshmallow, and repeat for as many as you’d like to make. Set aside.
2). Melt the white chocolate in a glass measuring cup or a mug. Melt the chocolate using 50% heat, and check it ever 30 seconds or so.
3). Dip the marshmallows on a stick into the white chocolate (I usually just dip about 2/3 of the marshmallow). Allow some excess chocolate to drip off a bit.
4.) Immediately, sprinkle the chocolate covered marshmallow with sprinkles of your choice (this is best done over a large bowl with a paper towel at the bottom of the bowl to keep the sprinkles from bouncing around).
5). Place the finished marshmallows in a mug or short vase and move to the fridge or freezer for a few minutes, just long enough to let the chocolate set up.
6). Eat, or package as desired.
I made up a bunch of marshmallow pops for my youngest to share with her classmates, and they were very popular little treats! For these, I cut the straws in 1/2 to make cute, tiny little goodies (and save on straws!). I wrapped the marshmallows in little baggies (available at Michael’s or most craft stores) and tied them with bakers twine (from Bakers Stock).
Happy treat making!
