DIY: Marshmallow Treat Pops

Quick Jump To » Comments

marshmallow treat pops

Several people have asked about the marshmallow pops pictured in the Pink Ribbon Tree Centerpiece DIY (posted earlier today) – so here are the details on how to make these fun – and SUPER easy! – little treats, as well as the display tray pictured above.

I first discovered the marshmallow pop idea on Kim’s Lollipop Party feature. She used chocolate and rainbow sprinkles on her marshmallows to mimic the look of Bakerella’s adorable cupcake pops… a genius shortcut, especially when you’re pressed for time!

Here are the DIY details:


For the Pink Marshmallow Pops:

You’ll need:
pink Candy Melts
pink M&M’s (or similar)
white nonpareils
lollipop sticks

1. Insert the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows & set aside.

2. Melt the candy in the microwave, according to package instructions.

3. Dip each marshmallow (with stick) into the melted candy, until about ½ of the marshmallow is coated.

4. Sprinkle with nonpareils and top with a pink M&M while candy coating is still warm.

For the Presentation/Display:

You’ll need:
craft styrofoam sheet – approx 1″ thick
shallow vase/container (such as the 6.75″ ceramic dish used here)
decorative pink ribbon
pink rhinestones (optional)

1. Measure your vase/container, and cut a piece of the styrofoam sheet to match.

2. Place the styrofoam piece in the container. (If the fit is not snug, add smaller pieces of styrofoam to close up any gaps.)

3. Pour pink M&Ms (or other candies) on top of the styrofoam until it’s completely covered.

4. Insert the finished marshmallow pops into the styrofoam, in neat rows.

    Looks great! But fyi: when I clicked on the link from Pinterest to get to your site–it came with a page first that said that your site has been reported as spam and/or inappropriate content. I'm glad I clicked on the go on button but I wonder how many others decided not to go on…

  11. I need to make 450 of them, can I make them a week in advance? Well at least 5 days in advance. I am thinking of making a few each night after work. Placing the marshmellows on candy canes, then dipping in almond bark, then rolling in crushed candy canes. Please let me know what the longest span of time was that you made them in advance. I would hate to make them all, then find they are no good come Saturday. Thank you.
