Did you know that there are people in the world that do not love marshmallows? Shocking, right? Luckily, no one in our family falls into that category. When we were looking for a fun 4th of July dessert, we decided to have a little fun with our Patriotic Marshmallow Pops that we made last year. We think these American Flag Marshmallow Pops turned out great, and more importantly they taste great too.
How to Make American Flag Marshmallow Pops
You will need:
- Regular Sized Marshmallows
- Wilton Candy Melts – Red
- Wilton Candy Melts – Royal Blue
- Wilton Candy Melts – Bright White
- Wilton Lollipop Sticks
- Star Sprinkles
Gather your regular Marshmallows, Red, Royal Blue and Bright White Candy Melts, lollipop sticks and white star sprinkles and you are ready to assemble your American Flag Marshmallow Pops.
First step, melt 20 Bright White Wilton Candy Melts in the microwave. Start with 30 seconds, open the microwave and give the candy melts a stir. Now continue microwaving the melts 10 seconds at a time until they are fully melted. Place two marshmallows on the lollipop stick and then using a spoon cover the marshmallows in the white candy melt mixture. Allow the candy to harden before you add a third marshmallow to the stick.
Once the white candy melt mixture has completely cooled, repeat the procedure with the Wilton Royal Blue Candy Melts on the third marshmallow.
Before the Royal Blue candy melts has cooled and hardened press the White Star sprinkles onto the Blue candy melt mixture as shown in the pictures above. Place the American Flag Marshmallow Pop aside to cool.
We made the red stripes with the Red Candy Melts. Place 15 Wilton Red, Bright White into a Ziploc bag and microwave them for 40 seconds. Take out the bag, massage the candy melts a bit and then microwave in 10 second increments until the candy melts are completely melted.
Once the candy melts were melted, we cut the tip off the bag and drizzled the red candy mixture over the white part of the marshmallow pops. Make sure you only cut the very very tip of the bag. You only want a small hole to give yourself more control over the drizzle. Allow the American Flag Marshmallow Pops to completely harden before you serve them.
These American Flag Marshmallow Pops are a fun idea for a 4th of July party or a Memorial Day Barbecue. Easy to make and so patriotic .. this is a fun dessert that you can make with the kids. Happy Independence Day everyone!
