DIY: Marshmallow Party Favors

One of my favorite fall treats is a VERY roasted marshmallow.  I love an autumn campfire and cooking out with friends and family.  I think these party favors, I found on Austin Wedding Blog, would be a great addition to a relaxed fall wedding or even a kids birthday party.

So easy and so yummy!

Marshmallow Fun Pops
Serves 12

Giant Roaster Marshmallows (12 ounce bag)
4 ounces of Vanilla Candy Coating (2 squares of Almond Bark)
4 ounces of Chocolate Candy Coating (2 squares of Almond Bark)
12 Lollipop Sticks
2 long sheets of Wax Paper

Toppings:
2 tablespoons assorted Non Pareil Candies
2 tablespoons assorted Dark Rainbow Candies
2 tablespoons White Sparkling Sugar Candies
2 tablespoons Pink Sparkling Sugar Candies
2 tablespoons Granola or Graham Cracker Crumbs
2 tablespoons Shredded Coconut

DIRECTIONS:

Insert a lollipop stick into each of the marshmallows stopping about 1/8 inch under the top of the marshmallow.

Put each of the topping ingredients into a separate small bowl or plate.

Lay out the sheets of wax paper on a large platter or two large plates.

In separate bowls, melt the candy coating in a microwave on 30 second bursts making sure to stir between each 30 seconds.

Roll the sides of a marshmallow in either the vanilla or chocolate candy coating.  Have a small spoon handy to smooth out the coating on the marshmallow if it’s too thick in a particular area.

Then dip the top side of the marshmallow in the candy coating.

If you would like a multi-colored coating, use a spoon to drizzle the opposite color coating over the fully coated marshmallow (if you have multi-color coated marshmallows you may want to put the candy topping on just the top of the marshmallow so the multi-colored drizzles show up nicely on the sides).

Dip the sides and top of the coated marshmallow into any one or more of the toppings.

Then lay the candy coated marshmallow top side down on to the wax paper and let cool.
