Looking for cute ideas for Valentine’s Day? This one is great, makes the perfect Valentine’s Day craft for kids. Who needs Valentine cards when you can pass out these yummy marshmallowy morsels of goodness? Here’s how to make Valentine’s Day Marshmallow Pops…
Cake Pops are all the rage right now. But they take so long to make, and even after many attempts at the art, my pops end up being a bit lumpy (even though delicious)! If you would like the cute cake pop look for a baby shower, birthday party or a Valentine’s Day treat but you don’t want the hassle, make Marshmallow Pops!
These Marshmallow Pops took under twenty minutes to make from start to finish and they turned out adorable! All you will need are: marshmallows, white chocolate, sprinkles (crushed graham cracker, coconut, etc.), popsicle sticks or paper straws and food coloring.
- First cut a small slit in the top of the marshmallows to allow you to insert your straw. If you skip this step you just might mash your marshmallows!
- Insert the straws or popsicle sticks and put them in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes. They do not take long to freeze and by doing this, the marshmallow is adhered more securely to the straw.
- Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate in the microwave on medium heat and stir every 30 seconds. White chocolate seems to burn a lot easier than regular chocolate so watch it closely! Add your food coloring if desired.
- Next up is the fun part: decorating! Dip the frozen marshmallows in the white chocolate. You will want to tap the excess white chocolate off. The frozen marshmallow will make the chocolate harden quickly so don’t wait too long before dipping them into the sprinkles.
My kids loved helping with this project. They are still pretty young, so I was in charge of the dipping and they rolled the chocolate covered marshmallows in their topping of choice!
These would make lovely Valentine’s Day gifts or treats all wrapped up in clear plastic and a pretty ribbon!
