New Year’s Eve Marshmallow Pops

Ingredients

24 regular-size marshmallows

White candy melts or vanilla flavored almond bark

Assorted sprinkles in silver and gold

You will also need:

Piping bags

Bamboo skewers or treat sticks

Instructions

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  2. Press four marshmallows onto a skewer or treat stick with a twisting motion. Lay on waxed paper.
  3. Melt white candy according to package directions making sure not to overheat. If the candy gets too hot, it will seize. If desired, add 1 teaspoon vegetable shortening or coconut oil to make the melted candy pourable.
  4. Pour melted candy over the marshmallows allowing the excess to drop back into the bowl. For best results, scrape the candy from the bottom (the side you place on the waxed paper.) Allow to dry completely.
  5. Transfer melted candy to piping bags. Snip the corner from the piping bags and drizzle colored candy melts over the marshmallows. While the candy is still wet, add sprinkles as desired.
  6. Allow the marshmallows to rest on waxed paper until set before packaging or serving. Before removing the marshmallow pops from the waxed paper, cut along the sides with a knife.
  7. Best if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator

What is the best marshmallow brand?

You may not think that the brand of marshmallow you use will really make that much of a difference but New Years Eve is a special occasion so why not step it up a notch? According to MSN:

  • La Nouba Marshmallows, 2 Count
  • Lucky Charms Magically Delicious Marshmallows-Puffy And Soft Texture, 7 Oz Bag
  • Mini Hot Cocoa Marshmallows Dehydrated Vanilla Bits Cereal
  • Hot Chocolate Bomb Marshmallow Bedtime Fun Drink Kids Xmas Stocking Filler Gift

Obviously, none of those will work for our fun dessert but if you were ever wondering what the “best” marshmallow brand is, apparently those are it. Go figure. As far as dipping marshmallows, you want a marshmallow that’s big enough to make a nice dessert but not so big you won’t be able to hold it onto your bamboo dessert stick.

Are there good tasting vegan marshmallows?

Yes. The brand Dandies has highly rated all natural vanilla marshmallow. The company boasts of being able to create a marshmallow that doesn’t have any high fructose corn syrup or gelatin and they’re also non-GMO Project Verified. On Amazon, they have 4.5 stars with 341 reviews. I’d say that’s a win for a vegan marshmallow!
