How to make Marshmallow Pops

marshmallow pop

As the mother of two small children I’m not remotely ashamed to admit that I spend half my life in Starbucks, caffeine is after all the main part of my healthy balanced diet. The other day in there The Toddler decided that their marshmallow pops were exactly what he needed in his life right now. Now, I’m all in favor of an easy life (especially when it means I get to drink coffee) so I didn’t mind getting tapped up, however I did wonder if I could make these myself at home and shock horror they are super easy. I’m quite happy to munch on these myself but obviously you are welcome to feed them to your kids and I think they would look great at a childrens birthday party.

How to make Marshmallow Pops: You will need…

What to do: Dip your marshmallow in some warm water until you can feel the texture start to change. Roll it around in some sprinkles and stick the cocktail stick into one end.

Ta-da! All done. This is so easy your kids could easily do it themselves and it makes a nice change from fairy cakes!

    They look so pretty! Sadly marshmallows aren’t veggie, but I did manage to make some marshmallow rice krispie cakes that were veggie friendly by using that fluff stuff- yummy!

    Don’t they look so pretty! My youngest loves roasting marshmallows over the gas hob as a treat. I wonder how these would turn out over a bit of heat? I’m sure he’d love to try.

    Love these and the girls will love making them so I’m pinning this post! I think we’ll do as another poster said and dip them in melted chocolate because you know, it’s melted chocolate on marshmallow with sprinkles….what could be better?!
