If you’ve been reading my facebook lately, you’ll know that I had to put out an APB for my missing bags of candy corn. Normally, this wouldn’t be such a problem except I NEEDED them for these marshmallow pops I was making for the kids. After turning my house upside down, I’ve just had to accept the fact that someone (or a few little someones) ate them and hid the evidence. Living in a house with a cop and a mom with an eagle eye, they’re getting quite good at this.
Anyways, even with the candy corn decorations missing, these candy corn marshmallow pops are still a fun treat for Fall or Halloween.
All you need to make these are orange and yellow Wilton candy melts (or white candy melts and orange/yellow candy coloring). Very important, you MUST use coloring made specifically for candy, you cannot use regular food coloring or gel. It won’t work, I’m promise, I’ve tried it. In addition to the candy melts, pick up a big bag of campfire marshmallows, some pop sticks and a few clear treat bags.
To make these, all you do is dip 2/3 of the marshmallow in orange candy melt, let it cool, then dip the bottom 1/3 of the marshmallow in the yellow candy melt. Once wrapped, they make fun treats for holiday parties, teacher gifts or just to munch at home.
Tips for Making Marshmallow Pops
- add a tablespoon of Crisco to 1/2 cup of Wilton candy melts to make the candy more smooth for dipping
- let the orange fully dry before dipping in the yellow candy
- use GIANT campfire marshmallows, bigger is better, always
- pop the treats in the fridge for an hour before eating
