marshmallow pops

My niece and nephew came for a visit last night, and along with that came an opportunity for me to make some fun treats I wouldn’t normally make.  My two girls adore them and love it when they have sleepovers with their cousins, so I try to make it as fun as possible for them – not that I need to do much since they have fun all on their own!  I’m also trying out some different treats in preparation for Katie’s 3rd birthday in July, and who better to try them out on than four fantastic kids running around my own house?

The last time there was a sleepover I surprised them with this flan cake which was a huge hit.  But this time I was looking for something different with a little more wow factor for kids, and this was perfect.  They take literally minutes to make and even less time to be eaten!  It’s another one of those can’t-really-be-called-a-recipe-recipes – my favorite kind!  I hope you enjoy it, too!

Marshmallow Pops

  • milk chocolate chips (a 16 oz. bag will make about half a bag of large marshmallows)
  • large marshmallows
  • finely crushed graham crackers
  • assorted sprinkles
  • lollipop sticks (you can find these at craft stores)

Prep all your ingredients and place them into bowls – mise en place – place crushed graham crackers, sprinkles, chocolate, into separate bowls ready for dipping.  Melt the chocolate until smooth.  Place one marshmallow on the end of a lollipop stick, dip into melted chocolate letting excess drip off.  <I scraped the chocolate off the bottom as it was dripping which helped it stand flat>  Roll in graham crackers for a s’mores version, or sprinkle with your assorted sprinkles.  This is a perfect recipe to let the kids help with.  Use your imagination and have fun!

    Those are wonderful! In fact, if I hadn't already committed to bringing Cake Pops to my son's preschool graduation tomorrow, I'd be taking those! Waaay less work and I'm sure they'd be just as big a hit with a herd of 4 year olds! Fantastic!

    My mom made those – they are decadent! I also liked your strawberry limeade. I've had to catch up with you – just signed up for the email delivery finally because I rarely checked my Yahoo thing – sorry I've been out of the loop with you! I'm back to be tempted by your yummies!

    They are great, but even better if you roast the marshmallows over a flame and let cool before dipping them in chocolate!!!

    Hi Kristy…”waving” remember me from way back last summer! I’m happy to be back to the world of food blogging. And glad to see “you” are still here! Wow…look at all those goodies! So neat that you are an active part of meeting with food bloggers! Maybe one day…when I finally make it up to DC to visit my dad and family, I’ll be able to get together with some food bloggers in the area (including you).
