Check out these cute little marshmallow pops! Aren't they adorable?? I made these yesterday for my 6-year-old daughter's class party today. In the age of so many nut allergies you find yourself limited as to what you can give as party treats. These definitely fit the bill of being nut-free because they are sugar and sugar topped with more sugar! Kiddos love them! Parents...well, I'm sorry! These are so incredibly easy to make you have to give them a try! I used Easter colored sprinkles but you could whip these up for any event (baby showers, Halloween, Christmas, etc.) One suggestion I will make is to try to find the marshmallow bag with the most 'round' marshmallows in it. I had a good bit of oddly shaped, squashed ones. They worked out fine, but the rounder ones made for the prettiest pops. Here is what you need and what I did (Sorry, but I hesitate to call this a recipe because it's just so easy!)
Marshmallows - regular size
Lollipop sticks - you can find these at craft stores in the candy section
Variety of colored sugar sprinkles
Insert lollipop sticks into the marshmallows. Push the sticks almost to the top of the marshmallow. Dip the marshmallow in a bowl of water. Blot excess water off onto a paper towel. Hold marshmallow pop over a bowl of sprinkles. Using a spoon drop the sprinkles over the lollipop until it's completely coated. Prop up in a cup to dry.
