A Sweet Treat for the Holidays – Christmas Marshmallow Pops!
Marshmallow Pops are sweet, yummy, and very versatile for creating quick and easy treats – especially for the holidays! When my boys were younger, I spent hours in the kitchen creating treats for their classes. Now that they’re older, it’s rare that I get to create for their classes; however, I still enjoy making smaller batches for teachers and staff.
The ingredients for the pops are simple: Jumbo-size marshmallows (the recipe calls for 10 but you can make as many as you’d like!), candy canes (any color!), chocolate chips, and some holiday-themed sprinkles. Candy melts can be a substitute for the chips if you prefer color.
While melting the chocolate, you can use the microwave or a double-boiler. In the past, I have created my own double-boiler by placing a glass mixing bowl on the top of a pan filled with water. Recently, I upgraded to a melting pot. It really helps out a lot by keeping the chocolate at a steady melted temperature while I create treats.
I like to add a tab of butter to the chocolate chips when melting, too. Dip just the end of the marshmallows in the chocolate and quickly dip into the sprinkles. With the chocolate side up, allow to cool and harden.
You can place the plate in the refrigerator if you want them to cool faster. Once cooled, the marshmallows can be eaten as-is or put a candy cane in the bottom to enjoy. Wrap in cellophane, tie with a ribbon, and they’re perfect for gift-giving, too!

Remove from the chocolate and sprinkle with fun, festive sprinkles.
Place chocolate side up onto a plate and chill in the fridge for about an hour to allow chocolate to set.
