How to Make Valentines Marshmallow Pops

You will need:

  • Regular sized Marshmallows
  • Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers or Chocolate Chips
  • Red Candy Melts (Wilton)
  • Bright White Candy Melts
  • Bright Pink Candy Melts
  • Pink Candy Melts
  • Lollipop Sticks

Directions:

Find 3 marshmallows that are approximately the same size.  Cut a whole in the middle of the bottom of the marshmallows with a knife.  This will make it easier to thread the lollipop stick through the marshmallows.

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.

We drizzled colored candy melts on our Valentines Marshmallow Pops for decoration. While the chocolate was drying, we melted 15-20 Wilton Red, Bright White, Bright Pink and Pink Candy Melts in Ziploc bags.

Once melted, we cut the tip off the bag and drizzled the candy over the marshmallow pops.  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.

Alternating colors, drizzle the melted candy melts over the Valentines Marshmallow Pops.
