Marhsmallow Pops!

Klair's birthday is approaching fast. I've been collecting ideas on Pinterest and making lists for awhile now, but soon I will actually have to execute them. 

So, tonight I decided to try out a recipe that I want to add to my dessert menu. I've never done it before, and I figured it would be better to try and tackle it now. That way, if I failed miserably, it wouldn't be the night before the par-tay.

But, happy day! I didn't fail. In fact, it was a great success. They ended up being ridiculously easy.

My inspiration for this creation comes from a blog that I recently started following called A Night Owl. Rather than follow her recipe exactly I decided to use white chocolate, dye it pink, and add sprinkles for Klair's impending birthday bash; however, the possibilities for color and embellishment are endless. Christmas pops anyone? Baby shower dessert?

I think what I like most about this recipe is that it is much easier than making cake pops, but they look just as cute (and arguably taste better... depending on how much you like cake, I suppose). The easy factor appealed to me, and these babies literally take a few minutes to make once you gather all your ingredients.
Alright, enough typing. Let's get started:

For these pops you'll need: 

  • A bag of white chocolate chips 
  • sprinkles 
  • a bag of large marshmallows
  • paper straws or cake pop sticks
  • 2 microwave safe dishes (one for the chocolate, one for the sprinkles)
  • Melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. (I put mine in for about a minute on high)
  • Stir the chocolate chips with a spoon to give it a smooth consistency.
    • At this point you can use some food coloring to dye it whichever hue you desire. 

  • Take a straw/stick and insert it into the marshmallow
  • Dip the marshmallow in the white chocolate until it is coated.
  • Dip the coated marshmallow into the sprinkles and rotate it until covered .

  • Place the coated marshmallows on parchment paper and let them harden (about 10 minutes--you can speed up this process by putting them in the freezer for about 5 minutes)

And... voila! You have yourself an easy sweet treat for your next special occasion! 


Oh, and this. 
This was my favorite moment of the night. My sneaky little Rosie took off with a marshmallow. 
She looks pretty happy with herself... yeah?
