How to Make Marshmallow Pops

These peppermint marshmallow sticks look and taste extremely festive and they are easy to make too! Looking for a fun but easy treat that the kids can help you make this holiday season? This one fits the bill… have you met a kid who wouldn’t love to smash candy canes to bits? 

To make these deliciously festive treats you will need cake pop sticks, marshmallows, crushed candy canes, Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers, water, and Wrapples, a caramel sheet designed for making candy apples.

Note, that the recipe here only makes 3 candy cane wands. You are probably going to want more than three of these amazing treats so shop accordingly!

Chocolate marshmallow pops

The first thing you will need to do is put four of your marshmallows on each of your cake pop sticks. Put them on a parchment-lined baking sheet or a silicone baking mat. Remove the parchment from one of your caramel sheets, dip your finger into the glass of water and rub your finger around the marshmallow stick.

You may need to cut one of your caramel sheets to make sure that the whole marshmallow stick is covered with caramel. Now you are ready to melt your Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt your baking chips in 45-second increments, stirring in between each one. 

Once your chocolate is melted, dip each of your caramel covered marshmallow sticks into the chocolate. Cover them completely, and shake off any excess. Roll your chocolate and caramel covered marshmallow sticks in the crushed candy canes until they are completely covered. Let the chocolate set before serving. 

Not only do these candy cane marshmallow wands look amazing they will really make your holiday dessert table pop, and they taste amazing too! Marshmallows, caramel, dark chocolate, and peppermint all mixed into one delightful bite? Yes, please! 

Chocolate Marshmallow Pop Variations

If you are having a party and making these for a crowd, you will probably want to make them ahead of time which is perfectly fine. Just store your candy cane marshmallow wands in an airtight container. You should be able to keep these delicious treats at room temperature with no problem for up to five days. 

Looking for a variation to this holiday treat should one of your guests not be a peppermint candy fan? Make your marshmallow sticks the same way, but roll them in miniature red and green M&M’s instead of crushed candy canes. You could also roll these marshmallow treats in chopped nuts, they just won’t have all of the festive colors of the season. 

These marshmallow candy cane wands look like you went to a lot of trouble, and taste like it too when really, they are so simple that a child could make them. Let your kids in the kitchen with you this holiday season and whip up a batch for the family to enjoy! 

Yield: 3 wands

Candy Cane Marshmallow Pop

Candy Cane Marshmallow Pop
Prep Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 12 regular size Marshmallows
  • 1 package of Wrapples, caramel sheets for caramel apples
  • 1 10 oz bag of Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 3 long Cake pop sticks
  • 1 C crushed Candy canes
  • 1 4 oz glass of Water

Instructions

  1. Using the top of the cake pop stick, push 4 jumbo marshmallows onto the lollipop stick.
  2. Repeat the step above to build the other two sticks so that you have 3 marshmallow sticks with 4 marshmallows on them in total.
  3. Place the marshmallow pops onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  4. Carefully remove the parchment paper from 1 sheet of the caramel wrapple.
  5. Dip your finger into the glass of water and rub your finger around the marshmallow stick to dampen the caramel and make it pliable.
  6. Carefully stretch the caramel around the marshmallow stick, covering the marshmallows completely. You may need to cut one of the caramel sheets into pieces to use to completely cover the marshmallow stick.
  7. Using a microwave safe bowl, add the Ghirardelli melting wafer and place into the microwave on 45 second increments or until melted, mixing after each 45 second set.
  8. Dip the caramel wrapped marshmallows in the chocolate, coating the whole area, then tap the stick lightly on the side of the bowl to get rid of any extra chocolate.
  9. Roll the marshmallow wand in the crushed candy canes, or use a spoon to sprinkle them over the lollipop to coat the chocolate completely in peppermint.
  10. Place the pop onto the baking sheet and put the cookie sheet into the fridge for 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
  11. Enjoy!
