Marshmallow Pops Three Ways: Candy Cane, Heath Bar & Coconut
- 1 bag marshmallows
- 35 lollipop sticks
- 10 oz. dark chocolate
- 1 tsp shortening
- 1/2 cup crushed candy canes (about 20 mini candy canes)
- 1/2 cup crushed Heath or Skor bars (about 2 bars)
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 35 paper candy cups
1.Insert lollipop sticks deep into the marshmallows, taking care not to poke them through the other side.
2.Place chocolate and shortening in a medium-sized microwave-proof bowl. Microwave on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
3.Working with one marshmallow at a time, invert marshmallow and dip it into the chocolate until three-quarters of the marshmallow is coated. Tap the stick while holding the marshmallow over the bowl to get rid of excess chocolate.
4.Immediately sprinkle the chocolate coating with candy cane pieces, Heath Bar pieces or shredded coconut.
5.Poke the lollipop stick through a paper candy cup and push up to meet marshmallow. Poke the sticks into a piece of florist's styrofoam. Let the chocolate dry. Eat!
