Making these pops is a fun activity for a children's party because any age can participate. The pops can also be customized for holidays or special occasions by rolling them in coordinating colored sprinkles, such as red and green for Christmas or orange and white for Halloween.
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
40 large marshmallows
20 Popsicle sticks
toppings: assorted sprinkles, flaked coconut and ground walnuts
In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and oil. Stir until smooth.
Thread two marshmallows onto each wooden stick. Roll marshmallows in melted chocolate, turning to coat. Allow excess to drip off. Roll in toppings of your choice. Place on wax paper-lined baking sheets. Chill until firm.
Preparation/Total Time: 30 minutes
As your chocolate starts to cool, it may be easier to spoon it over the marshmallows.
Coordinate these treats for any holiday party or get-together by changing the color of your sprinkles.
