If the holiday has snuck up on you a bit, don’t worry; I’ve got you covered with these delicious candy covered Valentine’s marshmallow pops! They’re quick and easy to make, and they’re a great last minute Valentine idea!
Though I definitely love cake pops, I’m not much of a baker, so these marshmallow pops are a little more my speed. 🙂 They don’t require any baking, and they only take a few minutes to make!
They’re fun treats for the kids to help make, and you can enjoy them later yourselves, or wrap them individually in cellophane and pass them out as Valentines!
Candy Covered Valentine’s Marshmallow Pops
Ingredients and supplies: (affiliate links below to the products I use and recommend)
- large marshmallows
- candy melts
- paper straws
- a small knife
Start by cutting a small hole in the end of a marshmallow; this makes it so you can stick them on the straws without smushing them.
Stick the marshmallows onto the paper straws and set them aside.
Melt your candy melts according to the instructions on the bag. For these, I poured a few into a small cup and microwaved them for a minute and they were totally melted.
Once your candy melts are completely melted, twirl a marshmallow pop in the candy coating to cover at least the top half of the marshmallow. The candy coating will drip down a little as it dries, so you don’t need to cover the entire marshmallow unless you want to!
Let the candy coating dry for about thirty seconds, then dip the marshmallow into some sprinkles as a topping for your pop.
Shake off any extra sprinkles, then put the marshmallow pops in a tall glass and let them dry! It will take half an hour or more for the candy coating to fully dry and harden; I left mine overnight and they were done by the morning.
Once they’re dry, feel free to enjoy them! Or you can wrap each one individually in a small square of cellophane and tie it off with a ribbon, then pass them out as Valentines!
