My Answer to School Cake Walk: Halloween Dipped Marshmallow Pops


Written by Chris

Halloween Dipped Marshmallow Pops recipe

Is it Halloween yet? My kids have been talking about Halloween for a month now! Today is their school Cake Walk, so I spent a small part of yesterday preparing treats. The third grade classes are responsible for all the goods, so seeing that my kids are a quarter of the class (not really, but close) I had to provide three different recipes (all individually wrapped).

I did a little brainstorming and took requests from my kids – let me tell you, they love anything on a stick. Matt Armendariz is on to something!

These Halloween Marshmallow Pops fit the bill. They couldn’t be any easier to make, they have a stick and I already know anything with sprinkles will be a hit with kids.

I also made Spook-tacular Chocolate Dipped Pretzels; these are always a hit at parties!

For the third recipe, I purchased (yes, purchased) pre-made angel food mini bundt cakes and dipped the tops into melted Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels and Premier White Morsels then sprinkled the tops with sanding sugar and decorative sprinkles. Please don’t call me Sandra – I needed a shortcut and they were absolutely adorable!

Ingredients needed for 25 pops:

  • Parchment or wax paper
  • 25 sip stick straws (coffee stirrers) or lollipop sticks
  • 25 large marshmallows
  • ½ cup jimmies or candy sprinkles
  • 1 cup any flavor NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Morsels
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil or vegetable shortening
  • Cellophane or decorative bags with ties

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Press straws into centers of marshmallows, as shown above. Place jimmies or sprinkles on plates (one plate for each kind).

Melt morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl according to package directions; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in oil (this will help keep the chocolate fluid). Dip marshmallows halfway into melted morsels; shake off excess.

Let pops sit for 30 minutes or until set. Test that they are firm by gently lifting off the parchment, as shown above.

Wrap in cellophane or decorative bags and tie closed to preserve freshness. That’s it…I bet these will go fast at the Cake Walk!

Happy Halloween!
