St. Patrick’s Day — Pot of Gold Marshmallow Pops!

St. Patrick’s Day will be here before we know it! I know Valentine’s Day is first, and we did some marshmallow pops for that too!  But we had some time to get a head start on these fun “Pot of Gold” Marshmallow Pops! Marshmallow pops are a fun, easy, and the kids will love them! Go ahead and sign up to make these for the St. Patty’s Day party at your child’s school!

What you will need:

  • Large Marshmallows
  • Black Melting Candy, or white chocolate dyed black — I am sure that regular chocolate will look fine too!
  • Gold Sprinkles
  • Rainbow candy — I used AirHead Extremes
  • St. Patrick's Day Pot of Gold Snacks Lollipop Sticks

What to do:

  1. Freeze marshmallows on a flat surface for at least 5 minutes.
  2. Heat sticks — I laid them on a cooling electric burner for less than 10 seconds.
  3. Place sticks in the marshmallows and put back into the freezer.
  4. Heat the melting candy according to package direction
  5. Take the marshmallows out of the freezer and dip into the melting candy
  6. Swirl the marshmallows on the side of the bowl to thin the layer of or melting candy.
  7. Dip into gold sprinkles — just on the top.
  8. Place into a bowl and let the melting candies dry.
  9. Cut the candy with one edge straight and one at an angle — about 1 – 1 1/2 inch pieces.
  10. Dip the angled edge into the melting candies and place on the marshmallow — hold until dry!
  11. Enjoy :)
