Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Pops


I can not remember where I saw this one ... but I love the idea and had to try them. Oh my goodness they were such a success! They were absolutely delicious and even better the next day when the marshmallows got a little firmer.


All you need is some melting chocolate, some marshmallows, some sticks, and some sprinkles. Actually you do not even have to have sprinkles, but I wanted them for Halloween so we used them. And see the ones with the orange and black bead type sprinkles...those were my favorites as they had such an awesome crunch to them and I love that added texture!
All you do is melt your chocolate. I used the microwave. Then put the marshmallow on the stick and swirl it up against the edge of the bowl evenly coating it. Then sprinkle on your choice of pretties and then stick into a block of styrofoam to dry.

I got one of the cute take out style boxes to hold them in and put a block of styrofoam in the bottom. Once they are fully dried you can put some cute tinsel or something in there and cover the styrofoam. Or if you are giving them as a gift wrap them in cute lolli bags!
They were so yummy that dh now wants me to make some with his work logo to send to work with him ... he rarely asks for me to take something to work with him so I am flattered and off to figure out how to do that for him lol!
Wish me luck! Oh...and have a great day!

edit* I ended up making Halloween ones for dh to take to work instead. He took them yesterday and the loved them, apparantly. Here is a pic...I wrapped them in cute skull treat bags, and tied a ribbon around them. I ended up making 75 of 'em.
