  • Large or Jumbo Marshmallows
  • Melting Chocolate (I used Dolci Frutta from the produce section because I like the taste over other chocolates but Merkens produce better melting consistency.
  • candy melts in various colors
  • sprinkles, or small candies such as Mini-M&Ms. You can use the full size version but they may slide or not stick as well)


  • Slide the marshmallows down firmly on the pop sticks.
  • To maximize the chocolate, use a deep but small bowl to melt the chocolate in. Lay wax paper out for cooling. Melt the chocolate in the microwave per the instuctions.
  • Using a spoon, spoon the chocolate over the marshmallows and coat evenly (don't try and dip them). Using a second, larger bowl, bang the marshallow pop against the side to remove excess chocolate. Allow the pop to cool on the wax paper.
  • If decorating with candies, place the candies on the chocolate pops before they cool and harden. If using decorating chocolate, wait until they harden.
