Marshmallow Pops Three Ways: Candy Cane, Heath Bar & Coconut
These make fantastic holiday treats for friends and neighbors! They are simple to make, so get the kids involved.
Servings: 35 Pops
- 1 bag marshmallows
- 35 lollipop sticks
- 10 ounces dark chocolate
- 1 teaspoon shortening
- ½ cup crushed candy canes about 20 mini candy canes
- ½ cup crushed Heath or Skor bars about 2 bars
- ½ cup shredded coconut
- 35 paper candy cups
Insert lollipop sticks deep into the marshmallows, taking care not to poke them through the other side.
Place chocolate and shortening in a medium-sized microwave-proof bowl. Microwave on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
Working with one marshmallow at a time, invert marshmallow and dip it into the chocolate until three-quarters of the marshmallow is coated. Tap the stick while holding the marshmallow over the bowl to get rid of excess chocolate.
Immediately sprinkle the chocolate coating with candy cane pieces, Heath Bar pieces or shredded coconut.
Poke the lollipop stick through a paper candy cup and push up to meet marshmallow. Poke the sticks into a piece of florist's styrofoam. Let the chocolate dry. Eat!
