Ingredients

  • Jumbo Marshmallows
  • Melting Chocolate *See notes for preferred brands
  • 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)

Instructions

  • Setup your decorating station with wax paper for cooling. Set out candies and other decorating items.
  • Slide the marshmallows down firmly on the pop sticks.
  • To maximize the chocolate, use a deep but small bowl to melt the chocolate in. Melt the chocolate in the microwave per the instructions.
  • 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 marshmallow 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.

Notes

What melting Chocolate is Best?
Dolci Frutta has really good taste but Merkens produce better melting consistency. Ghirardelli and CandiQuik are other good brands for melting chocolate coatings. Chocolate chips can be used but aren't recommended because they leave an uneven and sometimes lumpy coating.
How to Store
Once the chocolate has hardened completely, store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place like the pantry. Avoid leaving them exposed to sunlight as the chocolate may start to melt. They can also be individually wrapped in plastic if you have an event or would like to give them as gifts.
