Marshmallow Pumpkin Pops

Hey hey hey!
I know it's been forever and a day since I posted....oops. 
I may need to change the name of my blog....I wonder if Haley's Bi-Monthly is taken?


Anyway, moving on. 
Today I made a super cute and easy little Halloween/fall snack. 
These Marshmallow Pumpkin Pops were easy, and so fun. They would be perfect for a school party or a Halloween party because you could make a lot in a short amount of time.

So let's get started. You will need the following:

large marshmallows
orange candy melts
squeeze bottle or piping bag
green paper straws (or any treat stick)
green ribbon
parchment paper

-First, I cut the paper straws in half. 
-Next, dip the end of a straw in water and then push into the flat side of a marshmallow. Repeat until all marshmallows have a straw "stem". 
-Now you can melt candy melts according to the package instructions. Once melted, dip the marshmallows into the candy melts, making sure to cover completely. If you need to, you can carefully spoon some candy melts around the straw. Shake off the excess candy melt and then scrape the bottom of the marshmallows on the edge of the bowl and set on parchment paper. 
-Let the candy melts harden while you spoon the remaining candy melts into a squeeze bottle or piping bag. Pipe lines down the sides of the pumpkins. I started at the top and then stopped at the base. 
-Let the candy melts completely set up and then tie a green ribbon at the top. 
-Enjoy!


Seriously, these are fun to make. And, I realize that I'm not the first person to make a marshmallow pumpkin, but I love how these Marshmallow Pumpkin Pops turned out!

My 7 year old daughter came home and said she wanted to make some for her school Halloween party. Game on.
