Pink & White Marshmallow Pops

Marshmallow Pops is a very simple and gorgeous looking candy recipe that is definitely a crowd-pleaser be it kids or adults. Its as simple as marshmallow dipped in chocolate to give us these pops. Now who wouldn't love that. These pops are great sweets for dessert buffets or even as favors/goodies for birthday parties or as valentines day gift . 


I made these pops for my Lil one's (Rhea) First birthday party. These pops were one amongst the other sweets on the dessert table. Her party theme being pink and white I chose to go with these colors for the sweets too. But you can make this with white marshmallow and regular chocolate too. I had Oreo Pops that were on a lollipop stick  hence I opted these to be placed on the plate . But you can insert a stick in the marshmallow to give it a lollipop feel (See notes for more). These pops can last up to weeks at room temperature when stored air tight. Make these ahead of time and save the last minute rush. 

Now to the recipe...

Ingredients: 
Marshmallows in Pink and white color 
Candy Melts in Pink and white (Vanilla Flavor) OR White Chocolate and Red Food color
Some Sprinkles of choice 

Method: 



Melt the Candy melts in a microwave stirring every 30 seconds. Then dip the white marshmallow half way through into the pink color melted chocolate and pink marhmallow into the white chocolate. Gently tap off the excess chocolate and add/dip into sprinkles of choice and place it upside down for chocolate to set/harden. Once chocolate is hard/set, store in air tight container and use as required. 



Notes: 

  • My party theme was pink and white so I opted for these color marshmallow and candy melts but you can use colors of choice or simply regular white marshmallow and chocolate chips
  • If Candy Melts are not available you can use white chocolate chips instead. Melt them in microwave on medium heat stirring every 30 seconds. White Chocolate has a tendency to burn easily so keep a close watch. Then separate the melted white chocolate equally in two bowls and add few drops of red food color to one bowl to get the pink color. Then follow the same steps for dipping and you can refrigerate/freeze the pops for a few minutes for the chocolate to set. 
  • If you would like to add a lollipop stick, then dip the stick in melted chocolate and then insert it into the marshmallow. Allow the chocolate to set before going forward with the dipping. After dipping use a foam/ thermocol board to dry the pops by inserting the stick into the board in upright position.




That's it our Pink and White Marshmallow Pops are ready. Serve these as is or pack them in clear or decorative treat bags to give as favors/gifts.

Enjoy!!
