How to make Marshmallow Pops
These marshmallow pops are super easy to make with only a few steps. Here’s a summary:
(To make this recipe, scroll below to the detailed printable recipe card.)
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Insert a lollipop stick 3/4 deep into each marshmallow and then remove it.
- Dip the side of the marshmallow with the hole into melted black candy melts. Hold marshmallow over bowl and gently wriggle it around until excess candy coating has been tapped off.
- Place marshmallows on the baking sheet with the dipped side up and insert the lollipop stick back into each hole. Place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to dry and set.
- Once the black coating is completely dry, hold the marshmallow by the sides (not the lollipop stick) and dip into melted orange candy melts. Gently wriggle around to shake off excess coating.
Place the marshmallow pops (lollipop stick side down) on a styrofoam board; put back into the refrigerator for 5-10 more minutes to set completely.
These would be a sweet craft to do with your kids or even have them do it by themselves, depending on how old they are.
- Add some colored sprinkles or crushed up cookie crumbs to the pops before the chocolate completely dries.
- Coat the entire marshmallow in all black and/or orange, instead of striped.
- Replace the lollipop stick with a long pretzel stick
- Alter the colors for different occasions – school colors, sports team colors, red and green for Christmas, or blue and pink for a baby shower. So many possibilities!
How To Store Marshmallow Pops?
These can be made in advance, which is perfect if you need them for an event.
Store marshmallow pops in a tightly covered storage container for up to 1 week at room temperature. Keep them away from any heat or moisture or the marshmallows and chocolate will begin to melt.
How Do You Know If Marshmallow Pops Aren’t Good Any Longer?
The marshmallows will begin to dry out and become very hard when they start going bad. Chances are they won’t harm you, but their taste and texture will be less than ideal. Toss them and make a new batch.
Can I Freeze Marshmallows On A Stick?
Technically you can freeze marshmallows, but this particular treat doesn’t do well in the freezer – they simply become too hard and loose that fluffy texture we’re after.
These are so great for birthdays or the holidays. Wrap them up in a little plastic bag with a ribbon and they make great party favors!

Reader Questions and Reviews
Fun! I really need to start looking for more fun books for the kids. I just hate how expensive some of them are!
Oh, I know. Last time I bought books for them at Barnes and Noble, I had a little sticker shock! We started taking them to the library more. But there’s just something about the smell and feel of a brand new book.
I never really got into superheroes when I was a kid but I have to say, I love all of the movies that are coming out based on comic books now. It’s like I get to relive that era.
The kids are gonna be so cute! I want to see pictures.
ps…This comment is from Kylie, my 8-yr-old…
Hi Amy, I really your Halloween Pops. I think they’re really cool. When I grow up, my website is going to be called “The Wicked Apple”.
Thanks for chiming in, Kylie! And if you’re anything like your mom, your website will be a smashing success!
I used to always say “Wonder Twin Powers, activate”!! So funny!!
And what fun little treats these are! And so easy – great for the kids to make!
WHAT…NO more Halloween recipes? It’s only the 16th of October!!! This is such a cute idea. Would be perfect to do with the grand kids! They both are marshmallow freaks!! I wonder how many we’d have left, after we started to make them…LOL
I know, but remember I started posting in September this year! I’m already working on Thanksgiving recipes – developing, that is. As for the eating…pass me another Marshmallow Pop ;-)
