How to Make Springtime Marshmallow Wands
You will need:
- Regular sized Marshmallows
- Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers or Chocolate Chips
- Wilton Candy Melts (we used Bright Blue, Bright Pink, Yellow, Purple and Bright White)
- 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.
After getting all the marshmallows on the sticks, 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 one down side of melting chocolate is that it dries very quickly so if you want to add sprinkles, or M&M’s you need to do it quickly. 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. Then we used a spoon to help cover the marshmallows and also to smooth out the chocolate once it was on the marshmallows.
When the chocolate dries, the Marshmallow Pop will look like this.
For most of our Springtime Marshmallow Wands we drizzled colored candy melts on them for decoration. While the chocolate was drying, we melted 15-20 Wilton Candy Melts in a Ziploc bag. Once melted, we cut the tip off the bag and drizzled the candy over the marshmallow wands. 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.
They turn out so pretty with the drizzled candy melts! If you want to add sprinkles, you need to do that while the chocolate is still warm so they will stick.
These Springtime Marshmallow Wands 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 springtime baby shower or birthday party. And did we already say how yummy they are? Give them a try, you won’t be sorry!
