Valentines Marshmallow Pops

My girls and I had some fun making these Valentines Pops recently.   They had seen these for sale in Anthropology for $4.00 a piece.  Inspiration was born; they thought "we can make these easily". And then they inspired me as well. We shopped for  the ingredients we wanted and went to work, and let me tell you they were very quick and simple to make. They made delightful Valentines presents for several of the get-togethers we had, and they also made the cutest  Valentines Bouquet in our dining room. This is something that young and old alike will enjoy making.  You will have to be patient to let the kids have their turn... because other wise you might be tempted to do it all yourself.

Valentines Marshmallow Pops
Lollipop Sticks (found at craft stores or baking supply stores).
Clear Plastic bags (for wrapping each finished Marshmallow).
Ribbon (to secure plastic bags around lollipop stick).
1 bag Marshmallows: Large and extra large Marshmallows are what we used(in the picture above, Elizabeth is holding the extra large Marshmallows)
1 bag Melting wafers or melting chocolate of choice (we used 1 each of chocolate and pink melting wafers).
Assorted Sprinkles, Shredded Coconut or Nuts

  1. Prepare a work surface, by placing Lollipop sticks and Marshmallows neatly within grasp, various sprinkles in separate bowls, 2 or 3 mugs or cups to place dipped Marshmallows in for drying, and bags and ribbons for wrapping once dry.
  2. Heat melting wafers or chocolate in a double boiler and heat slowly and stir until melted and smooth.
  3. Form an assembly line with melted chocolate, Marshmallows, sticks and sprinkles with in grasp.
  4. Place a popsicle stick into the middle of a Marshmallow and dip halfway into the melted chocolate. Use a knife to help remove excess chocolate.
  5. Use one hand to hold the marshmallow, and the other hand to sprinkle the coconut or sprinkles onto the melted chocolate covered marshmallow.
  6. Set Marshmallow "stick side" down into a mug or glass, and allow to dry completely.
  7. Once dry, cover with plastic and tie a pretty bowl around the plastic to seal.
  8. Display or carry in a cute Valentines bucket.  We had some Florist Foam, that we put into a bucket and covered with confetti type filler.  Then each pop could be stuck into the foam and made to look like a cute bouquet; you could also use this as a way to dry your pops.

Have fun!
