Happy (almost) Valentines Day!

Today I wanted to share this simple & super easy recipe with all of you. I realize that most people probably have made marshmallow pops before but if you haven't, you must, as you will see just how easy they can be to make. I volunteered to bring these in for my daughter's classroom party at school and they are always a hit! The kids munched them right up! PLUS how could they not, by making them so festive looking literally makes them irresistible! ;)

Here's is what you will need to make these Easy Marshmallow Pops:

- grab a bag of Kraft Jet-Puffed marshmallows
- a pack of lollipop sticks
- a couple different bags of the chocolate melts for dipping (I used red & light pink)
- a variety of sprinkles / candies

1. The first thing you will want to do is melt the dipping chocolate according to the directions on the package until it is nice and smooth. Next dip an end of the stick into the chocolate, then insert into a marshmallow. This step serves as the 'glue' for keeping the marshmallows on the sticks when dipping. Then arrange them on something to set/dry. I like using my cooling rack as it has these inserts that keeps them standing up pretty nice. They should dry quickly so it won't take too long.

2.Once first layer is dry, do another one to get the two-tone effect & then sprinkle on your candies or whatever it is you would like to decorate them with.

3. The final step, and this is optional, is adorning the sticks with some washi tape to dress it up a little and you are all set. Place on cake stand & serve. Super easy right?
