Ingredients

  • Large Marshmallows
  • Candy melts – blue
  • Coloured Fondant
  • Sugar pearls – white
  • Rainbow mini chocolate chips
  • Lolly pop sticks

Instructions

  1. Melt the candy coating following the instructions on the package (I microwave them as I find it easier). Also make sure you use a deep enough plastic container to melt the candy so you can dip the marshmallow pops in it.
  2. When the coating is ready, take a lolly pop stick and dip it in the candy melt (2.5 cm – 1 inch). Insert it in the marshmallow no more than halfway through and keep it aside. Do that for all the marshmallows.
  3. When dry, dip the marshmallows into the candy melt. Make sure they are fully submerged and that the candy just coats the stick. Then pull them out in one movement and remove the excess coating by tapping your left hand on your right wrist and turning the pop at the same time so that the coating gets evenly distributed.
  4. Then put it on some baking paper to dry (or on a piece of Styrofoam, if you are making them up-right).
  5. When they are dry, you can decorate them. I used coloured fondant and I made the little figurines by hand: fish, jellyfish, starfish, corals, shells… whatever you like. Attach the fondant decorations to the pops with a little water. I also used some rainbow mini chocolate chips to make eyes and some sugar pearls for the bubbles (you can attach them with a little candy melt).
  6. Let them dry and serve! Or store them in a Ziploc bag… the candy melts will prevent the marshmallows from going stale.
