Easy Christmas Marshmallow Pops Recipe
Ready to whip some up? Here's how.
You'll need a few ingredients. Jumbo marshmallows, candy canes, mini chocolate chips, and your choice of Christmas sprinkles. After that, it's a matter of melting your chocolate in the microwave, dipping your marshmallows, and coating them in sprinkles. Once the chocolate has set, pop your candy cane in for your stick. Voila!
Pass these out as a cute gift for classmates by bagging them in cellophane with ribbon and a label.
No need to give the teacher another mug or Christmas ornament. Again, bag in cellophane but this time use pretty metallic twist ties. Bundle a few marshmallow pops together like a bouquet and tie in place with ribbon. Pop them into a pretty vase and you have a nice present.
Arrange the marshmallow pops on a pretty plate and you have treats for your own family get together. Better yet, ditch the store bought cookies and cupcakes for the class party and make these pops, instead.
This easy Christmas marshmallow pops recipe is also a great way to get your kids in the kitchen for some family time. If your child is old enough, they could complete this recipe with supervision only. If they are still young, letting them dip the marshmallows is a perfect way to include your little helpers.
