Blue Marshmallow Lollipops

I saw this cute idea @ Living Life Patino Style and I loved it! I have been wanting to try it for a while, but I waited for the perfect occasion. We are having a bridal shower today for my cousin Diana. Her wedding colors are turquoise and white. Marshmallow lollipops are perfect to decorate any table at a party. The ones I did today, could also be perfect as baby shower favors (girl -pink- boy - blue-) even birthday parties! No matter what, they look wonderful and taste wonderful too! I dare you to try them! :)
I only spent around $10 for everything! Not bad!

Marshmallow Lollipops

Ingredients

  • marshmallows
  • clear treat bags
  • lollipop sticks
  • chocolate wafers (many colors to choose from)
  • sprinkles
  • mugs ( to place marshmallow lollipops)
  • plates
  • fork
  • scissors
  • ribbon

1. Place a stick in each marshmallow. At first I used this valentine tin to hold my marshmallow lollipops, but found out large mugs work better.


2. Put chocolate wafers in a bowl. Put plate in microwave for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds mix the chocolate. You might need to put 30 seconds more and mix.
3. Dip the marshmallow in the chocolate and spin. Make sure you don't do it too fast! I got a little excited at first and I made a mess! :)


4. Go crazy and sprinkle the marshmallow lollipop.


5. When you have enough in your mug, place them in the freezer for 3 minutes or until chocolate hardens.


I just couldn't wait and had to have one! They are delicious!


Make sure they don't touch each other when you place them in the freezer! This could happen to you! These are called, "Stuck on You" marshmallow lollipops! hahahaha.. Actually, if you are having twins, this could be the best baby shower favor! hahaha..


6. Place the lollipops in a clear bag and tie with a ribbon. You can make them a little fancier by adding a tag, curly ribbon, cute embellishment etc..



There you have it! So simple, inexpensive and cute! Here is my bouquet of marshmallow lollipops! I hope everyone enjoys them as much as I did making them! If you try this project, please let me know!

Have a great day!


P.S.
Warning! You might end up with sprinkles all over your counter, chocolate everywhere (if you spin too fast) and this in your sink!
I'm kidding, its really not that messy!
