Remember when cake pops were all the rage? When they hit the scene, I immediately tried to make them at home and immediately failed. I don’t care what anyone says – cake pops are not easy to make. Fortunately, marshmallow pops are the easy alternative. Today we’re sharing how easy glitter marshmallow pops are to make and how perfect they are for Easter. This post has been updated for 2023.
Marshmallow Pops for Every Occasion
Marshmallow pops can be made for just about any occasion. Not only are they delicious, they are endlessly customizable.
- Christmas: use red and green colored sprinkles or crushed candy candes
- Halloween: try chocolate, orange, green or purple candy melts. Decorate with orange sprinkles or candied eyeballs.
- Fourth of July: white candy melts with red and blue sprinkles sets the tone for festive fun.
- Birthdays: customize to your child’s party theme
- New Years Eve: white candy melts with gold glitter
Quick Easter Treats for a Crowd
Hosting an Easter egg hunt at your house or Easter dinner? We love the marshmallow pops for Easter because they mimic dyed Easter eggs.
A bouquet of marshmallow pops makes for adorable table decor. Tie a pastel ribbon around the sticks and display in a mason jar.
Luckily many stores carry pastel colored sprinkles and edible glitter to top your marshmallow pops. You might even be able to find cute candied bunnies or chicks which would be so cute on your marshmallows.
How to Make Marshmallow Pops for Easter
Instructions for Marshmallow Pops
- Melt Candy Melts as directed
- Dip marshmallow in melted candy and coat
- Set on wax paper or cooling rack
- Before candy coating completely dries, sprinkle your favorite Easter sprinkles onto marshmallow pop
- Place in refrigerator for candy coating to harden
- Stick Treat Stick in marshmallow
- Wrap with plastic wrap or cellophane paper and tie a ribbon around stick
Helpful Hints for the Perfect Marshmallow Pop
- Hand-dip the marshmallows instead of inserting the stick first and then dipping. Hand-dipping gives you far more control but watch your fingertips because the melted candy can be very hot.
- Use a cooling rack on top of a sheet pan so that the sheet pan can catch any runaway sprinkles.
- Store extras in a sealed container.
