Marshmallow Pops

Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
