Marshmallow Pops

Move over Whoopie Pies there’s a new foodie fad in town!

This is not my normal thing…marshmallow anything really, but I thought this would make a cute post and a nice little treat for my kids.

FYI the recipes I am giving you here will make about 2 whole bags of marshmallows (about 30 each) but I only made two dozen all together because we’re not big marshmallow peeps here (no pun intended) and hey…can you really ever have too much extra ganache lying around the house?? I’m sure I will come up with a use for it…or a spoon…

Chocolate Ganache

6 oz. semi-sweet bakers chocolate

2 T unsalted butter

1/2 cup heavy cream

Toppings: crushed graham cracker, candied sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, coconut flakes*, chopped peppermints, chopped nuts, powdered sugar, shaved chocolate, brown sugar – to name a few.

Melt chocolate and butter in microwave safe bowl for two minutes, stirring often, until chocolate is melted. Microwave the cream for 1 minute until very hot then whisk into the chocolate and butter until everything is combined and creamy and smooth.

Dip marshmallow into chocolate sauce then lightly press into bowl of topping of your choice, turning slightly until all sides are covered. Place on waxed or parchment paper.

Caramel Sauce

25 caramels (or 1 cup caramel bits)

1/2 cup condensed milk

1/4 cup butter

1 cup salted peanuts, finely chopped

Melt the caramels, condensed milk, and butter in a microwave for 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir with spoon or whisk until caramels are melted and all ingredients are combined and smooth.

Dip marshmallow into caramel sauce then lightly press into bowl of chopped peanuts, turning slightly until all sides are covered. Place on waxed or parchment paper.

Here are all the different ones I made:

*I did try to make a few coconut ones but they didn’t look nearly as good as they tasted. Perhaps it would have been better to use a white chocolate sauce? Just an idea…

Also make sure you put your marshmallows on the sticks before you start to dip them (I know, duh!), and make sure everything is ready so that you can just dip, dip, dip away! Store in refrigerator so that the sauce hardens a little.
