Candy canes are so last year! Make these yummy “Christmas Marshmallow Pops” instead!
Here is an easy, “no-bake” treat that looks amazing and is really hard to mess up. These marshmallow pops are great as stocking stuffers, class holiday party treats, on candy tables and even as a gift topper.
Both kids and adults are quite impressed with these Christmas Marshmallow Pops. The best part is that they are quite simple and cheap to make, but look really impressive when they are done.
Here is the Step by Step on how you make these yummy treats ..
Things You Need
- Large or ExLarge Marshmallows
- White Candy Melts or white chocolate
- Christmas Sprinkles
- Red & White Paper Straws
- Treat Bags (optional)
- Red Bows or Ribbon (optional)
Super Singapore Shopping Tip: You can buy Candy Melts & Christmas sprinkles from Spotlight or Phoon Huat. Shortening is available at Cold Storage/MarketPlace, but is much cheaper at Mustafa. Red straws are available at Spotlight and other party stores. The red bows are available at Daiso. The treat bags can be found at Daiso or SKP. I purchased the candy melts, christmas sprinkles, treat bags and straws from Amazon and had them ship free with my US$125 purchase to Singapore.
Approximately 30 secs to 1 min each.
Super Note: It all depends on how fast you work. I am a perfectionist, so it takes me a bit longer. You also need to heat up the candy melts in small batches at a time. I made 50 of these and it took about an hour from start to finish (including putting the marshmallow on the stick, heating up the candy melts and taking a bunch of pictures).
Insert the straws into the marshmallows and set aside.
Heat up the candy melts/white chocolate using the instructions on the packet. Only heat up a small portion at a time. It will be easier to melt and a little goes a long way.
Super Tip: Add the shortening to thin out the mixture and create a smoother consistency.
Super Tip: You need to work fast otherwise the candy melt will harden. If you notice the consistency of your candy melt changing then reheat again.
Dip the marshmallow into the candy mixture.
Super Tip: After dipping, use a spoon to evenly spread the candy melts around the marshmallow.
Using a spoon or your fingers, start dropping sprinkles on top of the marshmallow. The sprinkles will stick to the wet candy melt.
Super Tip: Feel free to get creative with your sprinkles. I used Xmas jammies because that is all I had, but you can also use a combination of nonpareils and christmas confetti.
Stand them up straight to dry either in a cake pop stand or in tall glasses.
Super Tip: Turn on the air-conditioner (or if you are in a cold climate, turn off the heater) and the marshmallow pops will dry faster.
Step 6 (optional)
If you are not serving these pops right away or want to use them as stocking stuffers you can place the marshmallow pops inside treat bags and tie with a red bow.
Pat yourself on the back – you are finished! Great job!
Wishing you and your family all the best for the Holiday Season.
