Every year leading up to Valentine’s Day, the girls and I like to create special treats. (Last year we made these cute and healthy Strawberry Ladybugs). At the store recently, we saw a bag of jumbo heart-shaped marshmallows and were inspired to make these festive Conversation Heart Marshmallow Pops.
Our Conversation Heart Marshmallow Pops turned out even prettier than I imagined, and the girls had an absolute blast making them!
We kept it simple with two color coatings: pink and white. However, the sky is the limit and these would look adorable in a rainbow of colors too!
Wouldn’t these make the perfect kid-made Valentine’s Day gift for family, classmates, and teachers?
Conversation Hearts Marshmallow Pops Supply List
- Large heart-shaped marshmallows
- White melting chocolate
- Pink melting chocolate
- Red melting chocolate
- Lollipop sticks
- “XO” icing decorations
- Candy decorating bags
- Disposable muffin pans
STEP ONE: Push candy sticks through marshmallows, starting in the middle of the bottom point. The sticks need to be almost completely through for stability, but take care not to push the stick out the top.
STEP TWO: Prepare white and pink melting chocolate according to directions on package. (We started with two bowls of white chocolate pieces and added the bright pink candy to one bowl to create a light pink when melted/mixed).
STEP THREE: Dip marshmallows into melting chocolate and gently turn to coat. We used a spoon to help cover the entire surface of the marshmallow. After marshmallow is fully coated, slowly spin over the bowl so excess chocolate will drip off.
STEP FOUR: Allow chocolate coating to dry completely before decorating.
Tip: We used an extra aluminum muffin pan to hold our marshmallows upright to dry. Simply poke holes into the bottom of the cups, turn upside down and use two books to hold the muffin pan a couple inches above your workspace. (We saved these pans for future projects).
STEP FIVE: Time to decorate! We used candy decorating bags and red and pink melting candy to write short Valentine’s themed words on our pops. These “XO” icing decorations were just too cute to pass up, so I used them too for variety. (Attach by putting a drop of melting chocolate on the back of the candies as “glue”).
