4th of July Marshmallow Pops

This cute DIY foodie project is extra patriotic!

Ingredients

24
large marshmallows
1
tub Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
Blue gel food coloring
Sprinkles
24
lollipop sticks
4
strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups

Directions

  • 1 Transfer frosting to a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for about 10 seconds until warm and thin (dip-able). You may need to heat for an additional 5-10 seconds -- watch it closely.
  • 2 Stir blue gel food coloring into the frosting until it reaches your desired shade of blue.
  • 3 Dip each marshmallow in the warmed blue frosting until 1/3 of the marshmallow is covered. Transfer dipped marshmallows to a plate or waxed paper, so that the frosting side is on top. Then top with a pinch of sprinkles. Let cool for at least 15 minutes or until the frosting returns to room temperature.
  • 4 Poke the bottom of each marshmallow with a lollipop stick.
  • 5 Then use kitchen shears or a knife to slice the red Fruit Roll-Ups into thin strips, about 1/3 the width of the marshmallow. Wrap a single piece of Fruit Roll-Up around the bottom of the marshmallow (on the opposite side of the frosting), and press the ends to secure. If the Fruit Roll-Up does not stick, you can use a dab of frosting to secure it.
  • 6 Serve and enjoy!

4th of July Marshmallow Pops

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

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 of July?

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:

 

Use regular-sized marshmallows (not mini).

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.

 

Warm Betty Crocker Frosting to dipping consistency.

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.

 

Dip marshmallow tops into the frosting.

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 sprinkles to the top.

Add a pinch of sprinkles to the top of each marshmallow.

 

Let marshmallows cool.

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”.

 

Fruit Roll-Ups

Then comes the Fruit Roll-Up fun.

 

Cut Fruit Roll-Ups into strips.

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.)

 

4th of July Marshmallow Pops ready to serve!

Now they’re ready to go.

 

An easy 4th of July treat!

Cheers to the red white and blue!

Go ahead, try one!
