Candy Corn Marshmallow Pops

The last few days I have begun making goodies for our upcoming Halloween party. I must admit that I was considering making some cake pops this afternoon, but decided that I wanted something that required minimal effort. Candy Corn Marshmallow Pops turned out to be just the thing. They were pretty simple to make and turned out sooo stinkin’ cute… If I might say so myself!

Candy Corn Marshmallow Pops - About A Mom

Yesterday I dropped a small fortune at Michael’s. While I was there I picked up some orange and yellow Wilton Candy Melts, amongst a lot of other stuff that I just knew I would find a purpose for. You know…it was one of those trips where I went into the store totally unprepared, no list in hand, and walked out with anything and everything I could possible need for Halloween.

Now the true test…

Time to figure out what I am going to do with all of this stuff. I think I’m off to a pretty good start with these Candy Corn Marshmallow Pops. We’ll be serving them at a Halloween party, but they would be the perfect treat to hand out to your child’s classmates.

Here’s What You’ll Need

1 bag of marshmallows
1 bag yellow Wilton Candy Melts
1 bag orange Wilton Candy Melts
2 – 3 tablespoons shortening (optional – to thin candy melts)
lollipop sticks (50 count bag should do)
clear plastic treat bags

Marshmallow Pops

Poke a lollipop stick into the bottom of each marshmallow.

Melt orange candy melts along with 1 – 2 tablespoons of shortening. Dip each marshmallow 2/3 of the way up into the orange. Place each pop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and cool in refrigerator for about 20 minutes, or until hardened.

Melt 1/2 bag of yellow candy melts, along with 1 tablespoon shortening. Dip each pop into the yellow, about 1/3 way up. Place onto parchment lined cookie sheet and allow to cool completely in refrigerator.

Once the marshmallow pops are completely hardened, either serve on a platter or wrap individually with clear plastic treat bags and ribbon.

  2. Not a big fan of real candy corn by themselves, but these look so good AND cute!

  3. These look fabulous!! Thanks for the quick and fun recipe!

  4. These are really cute! What is your trick for getting the melts to melt smoothly? Mine always turn out to be a grainy mess!

  5. Love the marshmallow pops idea. Candy corn makes me nostalgic and marshmallows blended together sounds like the perfect blend of smushy and sweet. One of my very favorite candies is a “pop” made of marshmallow and caramel and this sounds a lot like that.
    Great fun for Halloween for sure.

    These are so cute!! Too bad you can’t make anything homemade for the classroom. Now it all has to be store bought and sealed. Atleast at my sons school. Still really cute. Might make these just to have at home.

  13. cute and fun!!! This would be great for next week.

  14. These are so cute! My kids would love them. I Pinned them so I would remember them and shared on Google+ too.

  15. Oh, I love these . I know what you mean when you say spending a fortune at Michael’s. :) I’ve done it many times. But none with the success you had here with these Candy Corn Pops. I definitely have to make these. Thanks for the recipe.
