12 Jumbo Marshmallows
2 Cups White Candy Melts (12 oz. Bag)
1 1/2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
12 Paper Straws
Place marshmallows on a flat surface and twist in straw about 3/4 of the way.
Pour candy melts and vegetable oil into a microwave-safe cup. Microwave in 30 second increments until candy melts and vegetable oil are fully melted (about 90 seconds), mixing well each time. Allow to cool for five minutes.
Dip half of the marshmallow into the melted chocolate and twist to allow excess to drip off.
To fill the gaps around the straw and create a hard shell around the marshmallow, submerge the marshmallow completely until the chocolate reaches the base of the straw. When allowing the excess to drip off, hold the pop horizontally so the weight of the chocolate doesn’t loosen the grip of the straw.
Note: If using this method for all pops, you’ll need an additional bag of candy melts.
Place on a parchment-lined surface to dry (straw side up) until tacky, but not completely dry. You’ll know it’s ready when it’s still wet, but no longer drips when you lift it off the parchment.
Firmly press bottom of marshmallows into a plate of sprinkles, being sure to roll sprinkles onto the bottom edges so some sprinkles are visible when marshmallows are flat.
Allow to dry completely before serving.
If marshmallows have dried before dipping into sprinkles, microwave water in a bowl until boiling, pour off water and dry off bowl. Then twist the marshmallow pop around the hot bowl to slightly melt the bottom of the marshmallow pop.
