Easy Marshmallow Pops

They are cute, super easy and great for kids parties or school bakers man days. 

My kids love these and they are fun to make- the kids can do most of it themselves.

All you need is marshmallows, some skewers, chocolate to melt over and sprinkles or sweets for decorating.

Here is how you make them:

1. I cut the sharp tip off the skewer first using a scissors as I am a bit paranoid with smaller kids but you can skip this step with older kids.
2. Thread three marshmallows onto the skewer (or you could do just one for mini marshmallow pops).

3. Melt chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. I used good quality baking chocolate this time, it is easy to work with and gives a smooth dry result but you can use something fancier if adults are going to be indulging (try dark chocolate and nuts).
4. You can either dip the marshmallow stick into the chocolate or you can spread with a spatula.
5. Decorate with sprinkles, nuts, sweets or drizzle with chocolate in a contrasting colour. Make funny faces or just go wild with colour- you are limited only by your imagination here. We just put different sprinkles and a jellytot on the end of each one this time

This will keep in an airtight container for a week or even two at a push.

P.S. For a healthier treat you can replace the marshmallows with fruit- serve immediately.
