Yesterday was my daughter's ballet class, so we decided to make an easter treat for all her classmates. I've been seeing these Marshmallow Pops around the blogosphere for a while now and thought they were super adorable! Plus, I still had tons of easter sprinkles left from previous treats. We got up early wednesday morning and melted the chocolate, dipped the marshmallows, put on the sprinkles, let them dry, packaged them up, tied the cute little ribbons on them all, put plastic easter grass in a little easter basket, put the pops in the easter basket and then we were all ready to go! We were running a little late and all I could think of was my sweet little daughter freaking out because "we'll miss the marching and that's my FAVORITE part!!" We finally got there, she grabbed her basket, got her ballet bag and... there's a huge sign on the door that says "Studio is closed for Spring Break!" I love when stuff like this happens, it reminds me of what a horribly unorganized human being I truly am.
We ended up taking the pops to my sister in law's house and handing them out to her family and her in-laws who are visiting from Scotland. On top of that, some of her music students happened to be there for lessons, so it all worked out in the end! My lesson has been learned. Never, EVER throw away or misplace any important documents that may or may not list very important dates.
Marshmallow Pops Recipe:
20 lollipop sticks
1/2 bag white chocolate or milk chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler along with shortening.
Put the lollipop sticks into the marshmallows.
Dip the top 1/3 of the marshmallow into the chocolate and allow the excess chocolate to drip off.
Now, just personalize to your liking with the sprinkles!
Probably the easiest treat to make!
