A plethora of marshmallow pop trifecta

How’s that for a title? I kill even myself sometimes.

Bada-bing!

Um… er… uh… {innocent whistling}…

Let’s just get on with the post, shall we?

Before Valentine’s Day two weeks ago, K and I made a bunch of Chocolate Covered Strawberries.


{tutorial here}

During that chocolate making session we also made another fun treat! And let me tell you, these bad boyz are delicious.

Marshmallow Pops!

Yup. We took a ball of sugar, dipped it into chocolate sugar, then dipped it again into sugar sprinkles.

Do you see a trend here? Sugar dipped in sugar dipped in sugar.

Might as well call them Diabetic-Coma-Inducing pops.

I prefer to call them “The Perfect Sugar Trifecta”.

I’m pretty sure the strawberries were the only healthy thing on the island that day!

To make these Sugar-on-a-stick delicacies, we bought marshmallows and sticks. Except the grocery store didn’t have Popsicle or sucker sticks. So I found these mini skewers on the grilling isle.

We were totally just going to do good ol’ regular marshmallows, but then we saw these monster-truck-sized ones too!

Jumbo. JUMBO? Are you kidding me?

So of course I had to buy them. And let me tell you, the jumbo marshmallows are the size of my fist. Not kidding.

We anticipated quadruple the sugary goodness of a regular marshmallow (not to be confused with the pathetic wimpy mini marshmallows that are only good for adding to jello salad or rice crispy treats).

However, the fist-sized jumbo marshmallow was so ridiculously enormous that it wasn’t even fun to eat.

So, in my very professional opinion, I’d say pass on the jumbo ones.

The Marshmallow Pops are so easy to make that I didn’t even document it in photos. So, here’s the deal…

Take a marshmallow and stick it on the skewer. Dip the skewered marshmallow into melted chocolate. Remove from chocolate, tap off excess, then dip into a bowl of your favorite topping. Set on wax paper until the chocolate has hardened. Piece o’ cake.

We made a variety of flavors including:

After lots of sprinkle dipping and chocolate drizzling, we got antsy, which brought on even more creativity.

We tried a double marshmallow pop, which was fun to eat, but was hard to dip in the small chocolate container.

Then something happened. Something brilliant. Something Marvelous.

I was struck with the idea of graham crackers.

Now, I don’t know if these have been made before or not, but for me, the idea to make

S’mores Marshmallow Pops

was a brand new idea. Uncharted territory, if you will.

So I went there. Oh you better believe it. I smashed up a few graham crackers, then I rolled that chocolate dipped marshmallow in the crumbs.

And at that moment, the most delicious, most amazing treat on the planet earth was born.

The sprinkle pops are good, don’t get me wrong. But the S’mores Marshmallow Pops?

Decedent.

They are literally like a bite-sized S’more on-a-stick. They taste as good as a real-for-real straight-off-the-campfire S’more. And I do not take S’more making lightly.

If you do nothing else this year, for cryin’ out loud, please make a S’mores Marshmallow Pop and just try it. Humor me. I swear, you will not be disappointed.

We ended up making 50 more the night before Valentine’s day so the kids could share them with their classes at school.

I would say we made a plethora of them.

They were seriously that good.

When we were at Disney World in December, I had the fortune to purchase a chocolate-dipped marshmallow from Downtown Disney. This idea is not my own, I simply recreated it. However, I’m being totally honest when I say I have never seen a S’mores Marshmallow Pop… ever. So, let me give credit to Disney for the chocolate marshmallow pop combo, but I’ll claim victory with the graham ones. M-kay?

marshmallow_pops_hoh_12

Have you ever made these? Have you ever tried them, or even seen them before?

Are they like, one of those things that’s been around forever and I’ve been living under a rock this whole time? Well, if so, and if you are living under a rock too, I’m just spreading the wealth of recycled knowledge. Just doin’ my part to make the world a better place.

This is also a great activity to do with your kids.

And since I’m on the subject of candy making and baking, I’ll leave you with a few more yummy recipes.

You are welcome. xoxo.

Check out a few more HoH approved recipes. 🙂

  

  

I am not liable if you gain 50 pounds from making and eating all this yummy stuff.

Have a finger-lickin’ good day!

  1. We made chocolate-covered marshmallows with sprinkles for my son’s middle school’s staff for Staff Appreciation. We used them for our Hot Cocoa Bar and they were a huge hit!!

  2. I’m not a huge marshmallow fan (or a fan of huge marshmallows 😉 ) but those look so yummy! I think you might’ve made marshmallows more enticing! Might have to try that. Glad you had safe travels too and from Blissdom.

  3. I love making these, and when I found the jumbo size I nearly had a fit, because hubby didn’t think we needed them. What does he know.

  4. These are fabulous! I love all the flavours you came up with!! You are right, these are a fun, kid-friendly project. We made some for my daughter’s Pinkalicious birthday party to look like the cupcakes from the book; pink melting candy, sprinkles and a red m&m for the cherry (I saw the idea on Pinterest.) We were set up like our own little candy making factory, nibbling on m&ms and sprinkles the whole time. 🙂 Thank you for sharing such a fun project!

  5. Really enjoyed your post. I posted something similar this morning– Lego marshmallow pops! http://www.abakershouse.com/2012/02/lego-marshmallow-pops.html
    I have a whole week of Lego inspired goodies coming up. Thanks to Bakerella and Living Locurto for the idea of these fun minifigure pops.
    Thanks for your post.

  6. My brother in law’s wife used to make (I guess when she liked me) marshmallows dipped in caramel, then dipped in chocolate and they were my favorite holiday treat. I have not had them for several years. I miss them, but not enough to suck up!

    ~Bliss~

  7. Thanks for sharing with us .

  8. We’ve done the chocolate covered marshmallows and rolled them in various toppings but My Oh My…I never thought of rolling them in crushed graham crackers! Can’t wait to make them for my family! Thanks for sharing such a great idea!

  9. Holy Crap. S’mores marshmallow pops. You’re a freakin’ genius. Now please make me some. 😉

  10. Yummy! My kids would love these! 🙂

  11. I’ve done them dipped in caramel and then drizzeled with chocolate. I made them for party and did about 20 of them. They were gone in 20 seconds . . .people where hiding them so others wouldn’t eat them. Yes, they were that good.

  12. Those jumbo marshallows are crazy!! I don’t recommend for roasting though…they fall off the stick. LOL

  13. Shannon Widner says:

    Great minds think alike 🙂 I made s’more marshmallow pops in October for Halloween treat for my kids school. We loved them and not nearly as messy as the real thing when handing them out to 3,4 and 5 year olds. Love them!

  14. I had a party in January where I set up a chocolate fountain with skewers and marshmallows and provided graham cracker crumbs to dip the chocolate covered marshmallows in. They were stinking AWESOME!! So I know Exactly what you are talking about!! I am so going to try it this way though!
