Looking for a fun Easter or Spring dessert that your family will love? How about Celebration Marshmallow Pops? Easy to make and super delicious, these chocolate covered Marshmallow Pops would be a great treat for this year’s Easter Celebration.
How to make Celebration Marshmallow Pops
You will need:
- Regular sized Marshmallows
- Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers or White Chocolate Chips
- Wilton Candy Melts – Yellow
- Wilton Candy Melts – Blue
- Wilton Candy Melts – Bright Pink
- Wilton Candy Melts – Bright White
- Wilton Lollipop Sticks
Our Celebration Marshmallow Pops are made with Marshmallows, White Chocolate and Candy Melts. We used Blue, Bright Pink and Yellow Candy Melts but there are a lot of other great Easter and Spring color combinations you could use.
The first step is to find 4 marshmallows that are approximately the same size.
After getting all the marshmallows on the sticks, prepare your chocolate for melting. (Note: we tried both melting chocolate and white chocolate chips to coat the marshmallows and found the melting chocolate much easier to use. It melted into a thinner consistency so covering the marshmallows was easier. The white chocolate chips were a little clumpy and made a much thicker coating of chocolate. As for taste, there was no difference. They were both delicious.)
We used a long shallow pan to melt the chocolate. We put about 20-25 white chocolate melting wafers in the pan and microwaved them for 30 seconds, checked them, gave them a stir and then microwaved them for 10 seconds more. Stirred and then microwaved them for another 10 seconds. Once they were almost completely melted we took them out gave them a final stir. This amount of chocolate covered 2 to 3 wands. Then we used a spoon to help cover the marshmallows and also to smooth out the white chocolate once it was on the marshmallows. Allow the white chocolate to harden back up before moving on to the next step.
We drizzled colored candy melts on our Celebration Marshmallow Pops for decoration. While the white chocolate was drying on the marshmallow pops, we melted 20 Wilton Bright Pink, Blue and Yellow candy melts in plastic baggies. Note about Yellow: we added a couple of Bright White Candy Melts to the baggie to soften the yellow color a bit. And to make a pretty purple color we combined 16 Bright Pink Candy Melts with 10 Blue Candy Melts.
One color at a time, we melted the candy melts in the microwave. Start at 20 seconds, massage the melting candy melts a bit and microwave for another 10-15 seconds. Repeat the process until the candy melts and completely melted.
Once melted, we cut the tip off the bag and drizzled the candy over 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.
Alternating colors, drizzle the melted candy melts over the Celebration Marshmallow Pops.
We started with Yellow and then added Pink.
And then Blue,
And finally the purple. The Celebration Marshmallow Pops look so pretty with the drizzled Candy Melt mixture.
These Celebration Marshmallow Pops are super delicious. They are a homemade candy bar on a stick and who doesn’t love marshmallow and chocolate? What a great Easter treat or a fun dessert for a Spring party. And did we already say how yummy they are? Give them a try, you won’t be sorry!
