Pops are always a great idea for kids parties. I love cake pops, but they can be quite time consuming to make and as I was already making quite a bit of time consuming food for Victoria’s 6th birthday party, I decided to go for marshmallow pops instead. They were a great hit at her last birthday, when I had made them into “Sea Marshmallow Pops”, so I knew the kids would appreciate them this time around too. Though, this year I went for an even easier decoration: sugar crystals. I wanted them to look like fairy wands and went for golden sugar crystals to make it look like they were covered in Tinkerbell’s “pixie dust”! I think they looked really cute and I got the maximum result with the least effort, which is what I try to aim for when I am making many different dishes for the same party!! Hope you like them!
- Melt the candy coating or white chocolate in the microwave. Take a lollypop stick and dip it in the candy melt/white chocolate. Insert it into the marshmallow no more than halfway through and keep it aside until dried.
- Dip the marshmallow pops in a little water and then coat them with the golden sugar crystals.
- Keep them to dry and then keep them in a Ziploc bag until ready to serve.
