Claire's Valentines: Marshmallow Pops

The marshmallow pops I made for Maddy's party were a huge hit with the kiddos. And since they were so easy to make, I decided to make them for Claire's classmates for Valentines Day this year. 

You will need:
  • Bag of marshmallows
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Baking chocolate
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Sprinkles
  • M&M's
  • Small clear treat bags
  • Ribbon

First, insert the sticks into the center of all your marshmallows.

Melt your chocolate. I put mine into a microwave safe bowl and microwaved it a few seconds at a time stirring in between. Follow the specific melting instructions for the kind you have. I used both white and milk chocolate. You can add food coloring to the white chocolate after it's melted if you'd like making it easy to coordinate these with any color scheme.  Dip your marshmallow in the the chocolate about half way and twirl it around to let the extra chocolate drip off. While the chocolate is still wet add your M&M's and sprinkles.

Then set them in cups to dry making sure they don't touch each other.

After they dried I wrapped them each with a clear plastic treat bag and tied them with a ribbon.



Claire picked out her own Valentines and we inserted the popsicle stick into the slits on the side.




























There you have it! Super easy, not expensive and a little different than your average Valentine!
