Oh my goodness, these Valentine’s Day treats were so easy, and they are so stinkin cute!
I decided to go very low tech and make chocolate dipped marshmallow pops in a kind of ode to the amazing Bakerella and her cake pops (tell me you’ve seen these, they are AMAZING) and also to Amy Atlas and her ridiculously gorgeous candy bar table displays.
These were so easy. Seriously!
First I prepared my stand — just a gold box I had. I cut floral foam to fit in the bottom.
Wrapped the foam in pink tissue paper and placed it in the bottom of the box.
Up next was prepping the marshmallow pops. I took mini candy mold/cupcake wrappers and stuck a lollipop stick (you can get these at Michaels or any candy supply store) in the bottom of it. Next, I just stuck a store bought marshmallow on top. It’s best to prepare all the ones you’ll use in advance.
Next, you just melt white chocolate, add some food coloring and dip the marshmallow in the chocolate and then into the sprinkles.
Stick the finished pop into the foam in your prepared box, cover with M&Ms and you get super easy and super cute Valentine’s treats!
Adorable! Thanks for sharing.
Isn’t this just the cutest most adorable presentation imaginable? I might not eat them. Hearts to you.
Amy, these are so very cute! Thanks for sharing and happy Valentine’s day!
You were right; they are adorable.
Amy, I found your website via Bakerella. I’m going to be trying the cupcake pops with gluten free cake. Have you tried this?? I’d love to hear from you!!
Okay – I made them. They don’t look anything like what they do on Bakerella’s website – but isn’t that life? My girlfriend who introduced me to the idea gave me some hints for the next time.
I used Bob’s Red Mill Chocolate Cake and changed the frosting amount to only 2/3 a can. After that, I followed what she said and it tastes great! You’ll have to try it. I’m going to email her and let her know as I know that there are lots of us “gluten free” bakerellas out there!
Try making a gluten free cake using the Namaste brand. I love the chocolate and spice cake mixes. I am sure there are plenty of gluten free frosting recipes. My sister-in-law brought cake pops to a family party, and I loved how cute they were. I can’t wait to make some cake pops I can enjoy looking at and eating!
(There are probably other good gluten free cake mixes, but Namaste is the only one I can eat due to multiple allergies.)
