Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows in Regular Chocolate and Colorful Sprinkles added.

Simply dip straight into chocolate, lift and tap, add sprinkles and dry marshmallow side down on parchment paper. We use Reynolds Parchment Paper which can be found at most grocery stores.

Add cute tags or flags for decoration. We used a circle punch and some colorful scrapbook paper. You could add a small photo in the center as well.







Ingredients

  • Large Marshmallows
  • Chocolate (regular or white)
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • Sprinkles
  • Other Items

  • Treat bags (if you want to package them individually)
  • Ribbon to tie bags
  • Tag or small flag to attach to stick if you are displaying.
  • Directions

    1. Melt white or regular chocolate. Use Wilton Chocolate Melter or melt chocolate in bowl. Since microwaves vary, times will vary. Heat until just melted. Chocolate should be warm not hot. Chocolate scorches very easily and will taste burnt if heated too long. Microwave 60 seconds on 50% power, stir well, and repeat 30 seconds at 50% power until melted.
    2. Insert lollipop sticks into the marshmallow almost half way.
    3. Dip marshmallow into chocolate a little more than half way.
    4. Tap stick gently while slowly rotating the stick to remove excess. The rotating makes it smoother all around.
    5. Add sprinkles and candy decorations. Place on parchment paper to set. It will not stick using parchment paper.

    Marshmallow Lollipop Centerpiece

    Here's a fun way to serve your marshmallow lollipops. Arrange it bouquet style in a party themed dish with other decorative items. Add some colored grass to match and you've got a perfect centerpiece for your birthday party.

    Customize your lollipops by using different colored sprinkles to match the party colors. All types of sprinkles can be used and you can add a small candy on the top to dress it up.

    Dry this one standing up. Using a lollipop stick, poke holes into a piece styrofoam about 3 inches apart so lollipops won't touch while drying. Be sure styrofoam is wide enough that it won't tip while the pops are in it drying.

    Tips and Suggestions

    Wilton chocolate melter

  • This pot made this so much easier! I'd definitely recommend getting this Wilton Chocolate Melting Pot if you enjoy dipping pretzels, strawberries and make cake pops. The metal portion or the pot will get hot so adult needs to be constantly monitoring.
  • Do not get any water in your melted chocolate, this will ruin it.
  • If you have a Walmart near you, they will probably have the best prices for lollipop sticks, treat bags, and the Chocolate Melter. Look for it in the party section.
  • You can find styrofoam blocks at WalMart and craft stores. You can use one you have from packing as long as it's clean and will not tip over after sticking in the pops. We used a flat rectangle about 14 x 12 inches.
  • Customize it to your Theme

  • Change the sprinkle colors or if it's a holiday party you can find small egg shaped sprinkles for Easter, hearts for Valentines and so forth like Wilton Animals and Stars Sprinkle Assortment
  • Find a cup, container, tin or basket with a picture of your theme on it to serve these treats. Just find some styrofoam to fit your container and stick the pops in it.

  • Add a flag or cut out circles in cardstock, punch a hole and add a theme sticker on each, tie with ribbon to the stick of the lollipop.
