Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because we get to spend time in the kitchen with family. Both of my kids love to help me cook so I try to think of easy recipes to get them involved. With Halloween behind us, we have started to think about Thanksgiving a little more and we created these easy Thanksgiving Marshmallow Pops one day. They were so much fun to make and the kids loved taste testing their treats!
To make your own Thanksgiving Marshmallow Pops you will need:
- Marshmallows (I used some cool rectangle ones that I found at our local grocery store but any marshmallows will work.)
- White chocolate bark
- Festive colored sprinkles (We used orange and yellow ones and chocolate pumpkin ones. I found both of them at the dollar section in Target.)
- Cake pop sticks
Melt your white chocolate bark in a double boiler or the microwave. If you use the microwave put the chocolate in for 30 second intervals and mix well each time. It should only take 2 or 3 30 second periods to completely melt your bark. I did this part for my kids since they are both young, but this would be fine for an older child to do on their own.
Put your marshmallow on the cake pop stick and cover it with the melted chocolate. You can spoon it on or dip it right into the chocolate. Hold up the cake pop and add your sprinkles to the pops. They sprinkles stick really well to the melted chocolate. Set them down on a paper plate to cool and harden. The white chocolate bark will set fairly quickly, which is perfect for little impatient ones.
Once its cooled let your kids enjoy their Thanksgiving pops! But be careful, these tend to disappear in our house. The kids love this easy recipe but they enjoy eating them even more!
