Christmas/Holiday Marshmallow Pop Ingredients –

10 large marshmallows

10 Wilton candy sticks – get the thicker candy sticks, the thin one don’t hold the weight of the marshmallow and chocolate.

12 oz. Wilton red chocolate candy melts

Christmas colored sprinkles

2 short cups/mugs to stand the marshmallows up in after dipping

Directions –

#1. Insert one candy stick into the base of each marshmallow and set aside.

#2. In a microwave safe dish, heat the red chocolate candy melts in 30 second increments. Stir every 30 seconds until melted. My microwave took about 2 ½ – 3 minutes. Let cool 3-4 minutes before dipping your marshmallows.

#3. Dip each marshmallow one at a time in the red chocolate. Use a small spoon to help cover the marshmallow completely if needed and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl.

#4. Sprinkle the marshmallow with the Christmas sprinkles before the chocolate sets and stand the marshmallow up in the cup/mug.

#5 Repeat steps #3 and #4 with all the marshmallows. Once they are all dipped and sprinkled place the mugs in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

If not serving immediately store in a cool dry are so the chocolate does not melt.
*Makes 8-10 servings. 1 marshmallow = 1 serving.
