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!
Pixie Dust Marshmallow Pops
How to make Pixie Dust Marshmallow Pops for your next fairy party!
- Golden Sugar Crystals
- Lollypop Sticks
- Candy melts or White chocolate
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.
Keep them to dry and then keep them in a Ziploc bag until ready to serve.
I made these 2 days in advance and they were still very soft even a couple of days after the party. Just keep them in a Ziploc bag.

that’s why I don’t make pops, takes too much time and dedication. But I like your take with the marshmallow, easy and hassle free, plus they are cute and pretty.
These are so enchanting. Story book charming. Your daughter is so lucky to have such a creative mom such as you. Happy b’day to her!
