Cooking with kids

marshmellow-popThis is a fun snack for kids and a cute party activity. It’s also messy and allows kids to be creative. It requires adult assistance.

Marshmallow Pops


24 large marshmallows
24 wooden skewers
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
½ cup multicolored sprinkles
½ cup chocolate sprinkles
½ cup chopped peanuts
½ cup coconut
½ cup mini white chocolate chips


wherever your imagination takes you…

Thread one marshmallow onto each skewer. Place on baking sheet and freeze until firm – 10 – 15 minutes. (For marshmallow “kebabs”, place up to 4 marshmallows on the skewer). Coat each marshmallow with the melted chocolate, spreading evenly. Sprinkle desire coating over one side of each marshmallow (I advise keeping wax paper underneath as you do this unless you are a glutton for punishment!) and refreeze, plain chocolate side down. Marshmallows are ready to eat after 30 minutes.

  1. Great idea!! How long can they keep out without getting soggy from the defrosting??? Will they stay better if I keep them in the freezer esp if the kids want to eat them the next day??
