How to make St. Patrick’s Day Marshmallow Pops
You will need:
- Regular sized Marshmallows
- Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers or Chocolate Chips
- Wilton Candy Melts – White
- Wilton Candy Melts – Green
- Wilton Lollipop Sticks
Find 3 marshmallows that are approximately the same size and place them on the lollipop stick.
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 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 St. Patrick’s Day Marshmallow Pop will look like this.
We drizzled candy melts over the marshmallow pops in green, light green and white. We melted the candy melts in a plastic bag in the microwave in the following amounts:
White Drizzle – 10 Bright White Candy Melts
Green Drizzle – 12 Green Candy Melts
Light Green Drizzle – 5 Bright White + 10 Green Candy Melts
Once melted, we cut the tip off the bag to get ready for the drizzling. 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.
Drizzle the three colors of candy melts over over the marshmallow wands. They turn out so pretty with the drizzled candy melts!
These St. Patrick’s Day 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 St. Patrick’s Day treat. And did we already say how yummy they are? Give them a try, you won’t be sorry!
