So, one day, I was cruising through other people's inspiration boards on pinterest when I saw these pops. They looked so cute and I happened to have everything on hand except the red, white and blue sprinkles and the lollipop sticks. I went to the store and picked up the things I needed and then very, very late that night - my daughter and I decided to give it a try.
They are very easy, but you just have to get the hang of it.
First you melt the white chocolate melts in the microwave. Stir until smooth.
Poke your lollipop stick or skewer into the marshmallow. If you are going to do the ones with the horizontal stripes, you stick a toothpick in one end and dip the marshmallow in one color. Then you work it off of the toothpick by sticking the skewer in the other end so that you can do the flip side a different color.
Have your sprinkles ready. I ended up moving the red and the blue sprinkles onto flat plates as well. You need to be able to really roll your marshmallow freely.
Here's the first batch. You really have to tap off the chocolate when you dip it in order to not let the sprinkles get too lumpy. We got better towards the end.
These were the trickiest.
Here's one batch. Bagged and tied. =)
I passed them out the next morning at our church's 4th of July celebration. Everyone really liked them. Of course, you can do any color or themed you'd like! We will definitely be doing more!
