Here's another use for our favourite paper straws - adorable marshmallow pops! My sister, Alexis, and her kids recently made these for a school bake sale, and boy were they a BIG hit!
Marshmallow pops are an easy and child friendly treat to make for your next bake sale or event. Sure, they're unhealthy, but what's that line about everything in moderation?
Chocolate wafers - melted
Paper straws - cut to 3/4 length
Small candy bags
Dip marshmallows into melted chocolate, drain off excess chocolate, sprinkle with sprinkles.
When chocolate has hardened, place marshmallows in small candy bags and then push straw gently and firmly into the centre of the marshmallow. Take care not to push out the top... the chocolate will crack if you push too hard!
Tie bags with twine, twist ties or ribbon. Insert into display base if desired.
A few helpful hints:
- Use chocolate wafers.... chocolate chips will not harden
- Must be sealed to keep marshmallows fresh. Do not make more than one day ahead to ensure freshness of the marshmallow
- Cut your straws to 3/4 length before you get started
- Our display case is paper wrapped styrofoam. Punch holes with pencil first and then slide pops into the holes.
