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