|Dipped Marshmallow Pops for a Birthday Party|
Luckily, I had ordered these great decorative straws from Etsy a couple of months ago. I love these!
I’d looked at Pinterest off and on at pictures of decorated marshmallows. I glanced at different instructions but I guess I didn’t really pay attention. Sometimes things really work out when you just have an idea about how something should be and then do it your own way. Sometimes…
Here’s a tip, if you are going to try something new and it’s for an important event, either follow some established directions or practice. I did neither. In the end, it worked out but it could have just as easily turned into a big mess thrown in the trash. Feel free to learn from my mistakes; I’ll tell you here what worked for me and what didn’t.

|Use a Paper Plate!|
The good directions to make Dipped Marshmallow Pops.
- Jumbo Marshmallows
- Decorative Paper Straws
- Various Colors of Sanding sugar (I now recommend pearlized if you can find it)
- Wax paper
- Chocolate Almond Bark
- White Almond Bark
- Paper Plates
Directions:Tape a piece of wax paper to your counter top.
Pour each color of sanding sugar into individual paper plates.
Stick the decorative straws in one end of the Jumbo marshmallows. I had to reshape some of the marshmallows to be more round with my hand. I wasn’t really going for perfect and that’s probably a good thing.
Melt the almond park in a microwave safe bowl. Stir it until is smooth.
Dip the marshmallow in the almond bark making sure to cover them all the way around. I thought it was best to let them sit on the wax paper for a few seconds before rolling in the colored sugar.

Then I place it in a dry spot on the wax paper to harden.
