What you'll need

  • Green food coloring (optional)

St. Patricks Day Marshmallow Pops

What you'll do

  1. Gently pierce each marshmallow with a lollipop stick or a paper straw.
  2. Place the marshmallows in the freezer for approximately 20 minutes. This will make it so much easier to decorate the marshmallow pops.
  3. Pour the sprinkles into shallow dishes.
  4. Working quickly, dip each marshmallow one at a time into the water dish, then immediately dip them into the sprinkles.
  5. Stand the completed marshmallow pops upright so the sprinkles have a chance to adhere to the marshmallow pops.

One more thought

Another pretty, clever way to decorate marshmallow pops is with white baking chocolate. Melt the baking squares in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each 30 seconds. Once your chocolate is melted, stir in a little green food coloring. One drop of food coloring will make a light green and two drops will make a dark green. Dip the marshmallows into the chocolate instead of the water and if you (or your helper) would like, sprinkle decorations on top. These lovely treats can be eaten immediately, saved for your St. Patrick's Day table or shared with your luckiest friends!
