Marshmallow Pops

So between a week of potty training (it worked this time, bye, bye diapers) and having to be home for the contractors renovating the bathroom, Nate and I have spent a great deal of time inside the house.  Team that with triple digit temps and that means that I have had to get really creative to keep the little guy (and myself) entertained.  Thus, marshmallow pops.


Lollypop sticks (or drinking straws or Popsicle sticks or bamboo skewers or chopsticks)
Big Marshmallows
Melted choclate
An assortment of jimmies, colored sugars, sprinkles
 Wax paper/parchment paper/aluminum foil coated plate or tray

Step one:
Stick the lollypop sticks in the marshmallows

Step two:
Dip the marshmallow in the melted chocolate.  Repeat as necessary.  [I showed Nate how to do this once and he did he rest]

Step three:
Dip the now chocolate coated marshmallow in the jimmies, colored sugar and sprinkles of your choice.  [Nate had a ball with this one.]

Step four:
Put finished marshmallow pops on a wax paper/parchment paper/aluminum foil coated plate and pop in the fridge for a few minutes to harden the chocolate.

Your end product will look something like this:

Nate had a blast, he got to "cook" something on his own, we all got a treat for alter and it ate up and hour of the day... all in all a successful project.
