Marshmallow Pops lead the way to the 4th of July! Made with Fruit Roll-Ups and ready-to-eat frosting, they're as easy to make as they are to eat!
Do you enjoy foodie DIY? Are you looking for a patriotic treat for the 4th
Then these 4th of July Marshmallow Pops
are yours to make!!!
All you have to do is dip some marshmallows in blue frosting, wrap them with a band of red Fruit Roll-Ups, add a pinch of sprinkles and a lollipop stick, and you have a festive and patriotic treat ready to enjoy! These are a perfect fun foodie craft for kids young and old to make.
Here’s the how to:
Begin with some big marshmallows. Yep, don’t buy the mini marshmallows for this recipe – you need the full-size (think s’mores!) big marshmallows for this project.
Heat a tub of Betty Crocker vanilla frosting in a microwave-proof bowl in the microwave until it warms and thins out. Stir in some blue gel food coloring until it reaches your desired shade.
Then do the dip! Carefully dip each marshmallow about 1/3 of the way into the frosting. If the frosting is too thick, you can reheat it or thin it out by whisking in a little milk. If it’s too thin, let it sit for a minute then try again.
Add a pinch of sprinkles to the top of each marshmallow.
And let them cool on a sheet of waxed paper or a plate until they return to room temp. Once they have cooled, spear each marshmallow with a lollipop stick to make your “pops”.
Then comes the Fruit Roll-Up fun.
Resist eating them immediately, and instead use some kitchen shears or a knife to slice the Fruit Roll-Ups into thin strips, about the 1/3 the height of the marshmallow. Wrap the band of Fruit Roll-Up around the bottom edge of the marshmallow pop, and press to secure. (Or you can add a dab of frosting to secure the Fruit Roll-Up.)
Now they’re ready to go.
Cheers to the red white and blue!
