Lego Marshmallow Pops
I don’t know about you but my boys really love to play with Legos. This week we will celebrate my 2nd son’s 7th birthday. I love to send treats to school but this year I was wondering what to make since the first week of school because he has a fellow classmate with a peanut allergy. Knowing that my son loves Legos I thought this would be an excellent treat! They are Lego Marshmallow Pops. You will need big marshmallows, yellow candy melts, yellow JuJube candies, some lollipop sticks and an edible marker which can be found at your local craft stores. I have heard the JuJube candies can be hard to find. I found mine at Walgreens or if you have a local candy store they might have them too. Melt the candy melts, then dip the tip of a long sucker stick into the melted candy coating. Press that end of the sucker stick into a large marshmallow. Dip a single Jujube into the candy coating, then press it on top of the marshmallow. Press your sucker stick into a piece of floral foam to keep it upright while the candy coating cools and hardens. Once hardened, dip the marshmallow into the candy melts. Tap your sucker stick gently on the side of the bowl to get any extra candy melt to drizzle from the pop. Return it to the foam and allow it to cool completely before drawing a face on each with an edible marker (also available in the cake making aisle of most craft stores). I must admit I had a few problems with getting too much chocolate on the marshmallow that made it to heavy and it fell down the stick. I just took the old one off and slid a new one on and re-coated it with chocolate. I also had a few JuJubes fall off the top so have a spoon ready to retrieve it. I bought a fine point edible marker and it seemed to be too fine to get a nice dot for eyes so maybe go with a thicker point. I used one 14oz bag and a little bit of another bag to make 22 pops. I actually had some melted candy left over that I used to coat a marshmallow without a JuJube on top. Enjoy your Lego treat!
