It's no secret that I love Halloween! As a holiday, it has so many wonderful elements: crisp autumn weather, pumpkins, mystery, silliness, candy and fun! And it's a great excuse to throw a party!
These adorable little snacks are perfect for a get-together. They are a super-easy crowd-pleaser! Kids love them, and something about a marshmallow-on-a-stick makes adults feel like kids again.
The best part? You only need 4 ingredients that you probably already have at home.
Chocolate-Dipped Marshmallow Pops1 bag regular-size marshmallows (or if you are super ambitious, make your own with this recipe)
1/2 bag (6 oz) chocolate chips (regular or mini) OR 6 oz of your favorite chocolate, chopped
2 Tbsp vegetable or coconut oil
Your favorite holiday sprinkles
mini cupcake liners
paper straws or cake pop sticks
1. Prep your assembly area: Put the sprinkles in a small bowl, and place cupcake liners on a serving plate.
2. Gently press straws/sticks into center of marshmallows, being careful not to flatten the marshmallow.
3. Melt your chocolate: Place the chocolate and oil in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir well. Place back in the microwave for 30-second intervals on 50% power, stirring after every interval, until chocolate is melted. DO NOT OVERHEAT - this will cause the chocolate to become unworkable.

4. Get to dipping! Dip each marshmallow 2/3 in chocolate, let excess drip, then gently press into sprinkles, one side at a time. Place in the cupcake liner and allow to cool.
You're done! Enjoy these sweet cuties!
