Ingredients needed for this homemade marshmallow pops
- Regular or jumbo size marshmallows
- Candy melt wafers in red and royal blue
- Candy melts in white or vanilla-flavored almond bark
- Patriotic sprinkles (like stars) in red, white, and blue
How to make these DIY Patriotic Marshmallow Pops
Press four marshmallows onto a straw or treat stick with a twisting motion. Lay on waxed paper.
Melt the candy melts in the microwave according to package directions giving special care not to overheat the candy. If the candy is overheated, it will be too thick. You can add 1 teaspoon of vegetable shortening or coconut oil to help thin the chocolate but do not add any other type of liquid as the candy will seize and harden.
Transfer melted candy to a piping bag or zip-top freezer bag. Snip the corner of the bag and drizzle melted candy over the marshmallows. Allow each color to set before adding a new color.
Repeat piping the candy melts over the marshmallows until all three colors are applied: red, blue, and white. Immediately after applying the last color (white is recommended) and before it sets, top with patriotic sprinkles.
Allow the marshmallows to rest on waxed paper until set before packaging or serving.
