It only took a moment...
One minute I was quietly clicking my way through my favorite foodie blogs, minding my own business. The next, I came upon Savory Sweet Life's Rocky Road Marshmallow Pops.
It only took a moment to rocket out of my comfy chair and search my pantry for the necessary ingredients.
Sprinkle beauty (nuts, crushed Oreos, etc.)-check
Seriously, 30 minutes after spotting this goodness on Alice's blog, I had my own Marshmallow Pops to savor. I dipped mine in semi-sweet chocolate and sprinkled them with a variety of tasty things: crushed Oreos, sprinkles, and toasted almonds.
As soon as the melted chocolate was ready, my little man came by to see what was happening...
him: "whaaaacha doin' mom?"
me: "Dipping marshmallows in chocolate."
him: "What! Really? Can I help?"
Marshmallow Pops--they bring families together. :) Make Some!
Source: slightly adapted from Savory Sweet Life
8-10 oz chocolate-dark, semi-sweet, white, whatever makes you happy
1 bag large marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds
various colored sprinkles
1/2 cup crushed Oreos
18-20 lollipop sticks
Melt chocolate in the microwave in thirty second intervals, stirring after each time until the chocolate is smooth. Dip a lollipop stick 1/4″ in the chocolate and then into a marshmallow 3/4 of the way through. Dip marshmallows into the chocolate until coated. Tap the stick until excess chocolate has dripped off. Sprinkle dipped marshmallows with whatever tasty option you choose (nuts, sprinkles, etc.) and allow them to dry by sticking the end of the stick into a foam block. Or, if you're like me, you can stick the lollipop sticks in a big bowl filled with dried beans. No foam block to be found in mi casa. I have beans though, and they worked. :) You just need something to keep the pops upright so they can dry.
