A super simple sweet for you this Friday afternoon. Minty Marshmallow Pops.
These could not be easier to make.
You need some Jet-Puffed Jumbo Peppermint Mallows.
Some Wilton Candy Cane Melts (or any other chocolate coating that you want to use).
And whatever you want to use for decorating. I used sanding sugar, candy cane sugar shapes and a CK Candy Writer. I used the darling striped straws from Sweets & Treats Boutique.
First I melted my chocolate coating according to the package directions. Then I dipped my straws into the chocolate and put one in each marshmallow, then stuck them in the fridge to chill. Once the chocolate was set (and the marshmallows were firmly stuck to the straws) I dipped each marshmallow into the chocolate coating. For the sugar candy canes I sat them on the chocolate while the chocolate was still wet. To make the swirls, I let the chocolate set then used the Candy Writer to draw on my swirls and covered with sanding sugar. Because the base coat of chocolate was dry, the red sugar only stuck to the swirl from the candy writer.
To package I cut some cellophane bags down a bit so that they were not too large and tied with a ribbon. Easy. Peasy.
See, super easy!

haha! True story…I was at Target this morning and saw these jumbo marshmallows. My first thought was these would make awesome “pops”…second thought I bet Christi has already seen and made them:-) I love how fun and cute all your stuff turns out! The sugar swirl is the perfect touch!!!
Jocelyn, it’s so funny you mention that. Up until just recently whenever I had an idea I would come home and exhaust the internet, not wanting to make anything that anyone else had made, or step on anyone’s toes, or anything like that. I learned two things, that everything has indeed made every idea out there and I either have time to bake and blog or research obsessively. I’ve decided that as long as we all come up with our own ideas, even if they are the same (I mean sticking a marshmallow on a stick isn’t splitting stem cells) then it is all good, the more the merrier. Okay, I’m rambling. It just was something that has been on my mind a lot lately! 🙂
