Halloween, No Bake

Halloween Marshmallow Pops

These are so easy and kids seem to love anything on a stick, so go mad for them.

They also involve no baking! Score.

In short – stick a straw into a marshmallow, dip it in melted chocolate and dip in sprinkles. That’s basically it. Ok, so sprinkles and chocolate splashes are inevitable, but it’ll keep kids busy for a while.

If you would like more detailed instructions, read on.

Ingredients:

  • Packet of marshmallows. Preferably larger ones, but regular will work too.
  • Straws – Halloween ones if you like.
  • 50g milk chocolate
  • Sprinkles

Method:

  1. Poke a hole in the base of the marshmallow with a skewer or cocktail stick. This makes it easier to stick the straw in the marshmallow.
  2. Stick straw in marshmallow and set aside. Repeat until you have the desired quantity.
  3. Melt chocolate. (*see tips below)
  4. Dip top of marshmallow in melted chocolate. Allow excess to drip off.
  5. Place sprinkles in a bowl and dab the top of the marshmallow in the sprinkles
  6. Allow to dry upright. I place the straws in a glass, til the chocolate sets.

Tips:

  • I melt the chocolate in an ikea beaker. It works well for small quantities.
  • Melt for 30 seconds, stir and repeat as necessary.
  • I buy themed straws in EuroGiant.
  • You can use any type of sprinkles. Candy eyeballs work well too.
  • Once set, they keep for a few days in a plastic bag at room temp.

Enjoy!
