It’s holiday time and everyone is looking for fun and festive treats to make! The children are going to be out of school and we’re all looking for fun and productive projects they can do. Look no further than these Sprinkle Marshmallow Pops! They’re super easy to whip up and are a mixture of airy and indulgent ingredients your tastebuds will love. These pops require very few ingredients but deliver in the taste and fun department.

The sprinkles add just the right amount of crunch and fun color that your kids or guest will eat up. We all know that New Year’s is right around the corner, so why not serve up these Sprinkle Marshmallow Pops with some pink champagne for you and your girls. White chocolate dipped marshmallows, smothered in sprinkles are too delicious and yummy not to try! Get the recipe below.

Makes: 12 pops | Time: 30 minutes

What You’ll Need:

12 Jumbo Marshmallows

2 Cups White Candy Melts (12 oz. Bag)

1 1/2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil

Sprinkles of Choice

12 Paper Straws

Instructions:

Place marshmallows on a flat surface and firmly twist in straw about 3/4 of the way.

Pour candy melts and vegetable oil into a microwave-safe cup. Microwave in 30 second increments until fully melted (about 90 seconds), mixing well each time. Allow to cool for about five minutes.

Dip half of the marshmallow into melted chocolate and twist to allow excess to drip off.

If you’d prefer to fill the gaps around the straw and create a hard shell around the marshmallow, submerge the marshmallow completely until the chocolate reaches the base of the straw. When allowing the excess to drip off, hold the pop horizontally so the weight of the chocolate doesn’t loosen the grip of the straw.

Note: If using this method for all pops, you’ll need an additional bag of candy melts.

Place on a parchment-lined surface to dry (straw side up) until tacky, but not completely dry. You’ll know it’s ready when it’s still wet, but no longer drips when you lift it off the parchment.

Firmly press bottom of marshmallows into a plate of sprinkles, being sure to roll sprinkles onto the bottom edges so some sprinkles are visible when marshmallows are flat.

Allow to dry completely before serving.

Tip:
If marshmallows have dried before dipping into sprinkles, microwave water in a bowl until boiling, pour off water and dry off bowl. Then twist the marshmallow pop around the hot bowl to slightly melt the bottom of the marshmallow pop.
