american flag marshmallow pop from the cards we drew

I found these ENORMOUS marshmallows at Walmart the other day, so I took to creating a JUMBO American Flag Marshmallow Pop!

What you need:

paper straws to put your marshmallow on

JUMBO marshmallows

White chocoloate

blue M&M’s (I just bought a regular bag and pulled the blues out…and ate the rest LOL)

red fruit rollups

How to:

place jumbo marshmallows on a stick

Start by placing your marshmallows on your paper straws. You’ll want to choose nicely shaped marshmallows for this project.

dip the marshmallow in white chocolate

I then heated up some white melting chocolate in the microwave and got my marshmallow ready. You’ll want to have a plate with wax paper nearby to set them on.

Before I dipped my marshmallow, I separated out my blue M&M’s and cut long strips of my fruit rollups and measured how long the stripes would need to be and cut accordingly…don’t worry, this isn’t as tedious as it seems. Have kids nearby to eat the excess M&M’s and fruit rollups!

cover marshmallow with chocolate

Dip your marshmallow in the chocolate, be sure the chocolate isn’t TOO hot though because you don’t want it to melt your marshmallow. Then add your four M&M’s in the upper left corner and your two long and one shorter strip of fruit rollup. Then place on the wax paper and put in fridge to cool.

add m&ms and fruit rollups and let cool on wax paper

Once they are cool, put them in a jar or glass to display, wrap them up and give them to friends as party favors, or just eat them immediately because they’ll have a great chocolatey crunch on the outside and a soft gooey inside!!

    HI, It’s too bad, but the first several I tried there was a 404 message, or a direct loop and I couldn’t see the post! :( Love the idea of the Marshmallow though and think I will try it! They are darling!! Happy 4th!
