Easter Marshmallow Pops

There is something about putting yummy stuff on a skewer stick that I love. Shish kebabs? My favorite way to grill in the summer. Well, I decided to take that concept to the sweet treats we love most at this time of year… Easter Peeps! Presenting my Easter Marshmallow Pops…

How fun are these?? I had a blast making these marshmallow pops with my daughter this weekend. Any kind of sugar-related activity is a hit with her! Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • An assortment of Peeps marshmallows
  • Jumbo marshmallows (I used regular and strawberry)
  • Sweet Mallows marshmallow twists
  • Wilton lollipop sticks (11.75″ size)
  • Wilton pretzel bags
  • Assorted sprinkles
  • White chocolate chips

We started by making some dipped marshmallows. I melted about 1/2 a cup of white chocolate chips in the microwave for 60 seconds. Stir the chocolate until smooth, dip the end of your marshmallow in the chocolate and coat it well. Then go to town with your favorite sprinkles!

My daughter loved this part!

Once the marshmallows are ready, gather the rest of your supplies. We created a pattern alternating the Peeps, dipped marshmallows, and the mallow twists. Here are the finished Easter pops:

If you are enjoying your treat right away, then it is fine to leave them uncovered like this. Yum yum!
But if you want to give them as a gift, or stick them in your kids’ Easter baskets, you will need to cover them. I used Wilton pretzel bags and they worked well… but they are a little tricky to get on.
Before you insert the marshmallow pop into the bag, cut an inch slit on either side of the bottom of the bag at the opening. This will make it easier to get some of the chubbier items inside. (Ahem. Yes, chick peeps I’m talking about you!) The chicks are the hardest ones to get in, but squeeze them a little and they will fit just fine :) Since I filled my entire stick with marshmallows, I had to use 2 pretzel bags per stick. I just put a little clear tape where the two bags overlapped to seal them together. Trim the bottom of your second bag and tie it with ribbon or twine. Aren’t they just the cutest?
My 3-year-old had so much fun making her own creation with mom!
And of course we had to try them out to make sure they taste as good as they look!
Kid approved.
What are your favorite Easter treats?
