Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Pops
Christmas desserts don’t have to always be pies or cookies. How about yummy marshmallows on a stick, covered with chocolate and caramel? Our Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Pops are super delicious and fun to make. They definitely have earned a place on the Two Sisters Crafting annual Christmas baking list.
How to Make Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Pops
You will need:
- Regular sized Marshmallows
- Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers or Chocolate Chips
- Kraft Caramel Candies
- Wilton Nonpareils Christmas Sprinkles
- Wilton Christmas Jimmies
- Wilton Lollipop Sticks
Find 3 marshmallows that are approximately the same size. Cut a whole in the middle of the bottom of the marshmallows with a knife. This will make it easier to thread the lollipop stick through the marshmallows.
Melt 20-25 Caramel Candies in a medium sauce pan along with 2 tablespoons of water. Stir frequently until they are completely melted.
Place three marshmallows on a lollipop stick.
Cover the marshmallows with a thin layer of melted caramel.
Lay the marshmallow pop on a piece of parchment paper or wax paper until the caramel has hardened.
After the caramel has hardened, prepare your chocolate for melting. (Note: we tried both melting chocolate and 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 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 chocolate 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.
Used a spoon to help cover the caramel and marshmallows and also to smooth out the chocolate once it was on the marshmallows.
Before the Chocolate has set, decorate the Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Pops with Christmas Sprinkles.
Marshmallow Pops are really yummy … but they are especially yummy with the added layer of chewy caramel!
