Ever since my failed attempt at marshmallow pumpkins, I have been considering making more marshmallow pops. Beanie is really enjoying getting involved in the kitchen at the moment, and when she suggested going for reindeer, I thought it would make an easy project.
Beanie was really proud to make them for her uncle and auntie last week and it took no more than half-an-hour from start to finish. You will need to let the chocolate set after covering the marshmallows. When we made our first one, Beanie and I tried adding the eyes and nose straight away, but they ended up falling on the floor.
Start by melting your chocolate. Chop it and place it in a large glass bowl over a pan of boiling water.
Put your marshmallows on lolly sticks.
Cover the marshmallows in melted chocolate.
Leave the chocolate covered marshmallows to set in the fridge or a cool place for 10 minutes or so. Keep the rest of the melted chocolate over the warm pan (heat off) as you will need it again.
Using melted chocolate, stick the eyes, nose and antlers.
A very proud Beanie!
Enjoy your cute treats!
We also made reindeer marshmallow pops for Jumpy by using ‘free from’ chocolate and pretzels. We omitted the M&Ms.
