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 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.
