Marshmallow Pops For All!

These colourful creations of sweetness are a joy to make, admire and eat!

'Soft' and 'crunchy' – the best of both mouth-watering textures! I love the contrast of hard and soft, like the use of concrete and faux fur, or charcoal coloured concrete planters with lush green foliage - the contrast of materials is visually exciting. 

When it comes to food, there is nothing better than biting into a crunchy outer coating to discover a delicious gooey centre of marshmallow, and these marshmallow treats are so simple to make, you can turn it into such a fun afternoon activity with the kids. Set up a selection of toppings and let them pick and dip!


  • 1 packet of marshmallows
  • 2 packets of melting chocolate
  • 1 packet of coloured 100 x 1000 sprinkles
  • 1 packet of white cupcake sprinkles
  • 1 packet of chocolate shavings
  • 1 packet of crushed nuts
  • 1 packet of cake pop sticks (available in most baking stores)

For added effect, use a floral oasis placed in a coloured pot or vase to assemble a super cute marshmallow plant like I've done! The oasis will also help to keep the pops upright while you are leaving them to dry. 


  1. Melt the chocolate down to a runny, smooth consistency.
  2. Prepare the marshmallows on the pop sticks and get them ready for dipping.
  3. One by one, dip your cake pops into the chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip off before decorating them with your chosen toppings.
  4. Assemble your marshmallow pop sticks in the oasis.
  5. Put in the fridge to set.
