Marshmallow Chocolate Pops
- Paper straws (cut in half)
- 200 g marshmallows
- 200 g chocolate (I used white for this batch of treats dark works well too)
- assorted sprinkles
- dried fruit chopped up
- freeze-dried fruit
- chopped nuts
- grated chocolate
- Melt the chocolate slowly in a bowl over hot water. Or in short bursts in the microwave.
- Lay out a piece of greaseproof paper/ parchment paper on a baking tray so they are easy to move.
- Cut the straws in half to make a smaller handle and stick the cut end into the marshmallow. As the marshmallows are sticky they will cling to the straws without having to use anything else.
- Dip the marshmallows in to the chocolate and sprinkle the sides with sprinkles.
- Place on the greaseproof paper and repeat with all the marshmallows.
- Place the tray in the fridge and allow it to cool if it's a hot day. If it's a cool day they should harden in an hour or so.
- When the chocolate is set the treats will peel off the greaseproof paper easily.
