Last week I tried to make cake pops for Tips and Tricks Tuesday. They were a disaster.
I made the cake crumbs too small, added too much frosting, and didn’t have a proper holder for the cake pops to dry after I dipped them. They tasted horrible (too much frosting, not enough cake) and they kept falling off the sticks.
Since the cake pops weren’t cooperating for me, I decided to go with marshmallow pops for an easy Easter treat instead. I had a lot of success with Candy Corn Marshmallow Pops for Halloween, so why not?
To make these Bunny Marshmallow Pops, you will need:lollipop sticks regular sized marshmallows dark chocolate candy melts green candy melts (or use candy melt gel colors to dye white candy melts) green colored coconut flakes (optional) bunny peeps
Melt the dark chocolate candy melts with a double boiler or in the microwave. Dip the marshmallows in the chocolate and allow the candy to set completely. While the chocolate is setting, prepare your green chocolate. Using a kitchen shears, snip the heads of the bunny peeps off of the body. Feel free to sing “Little Bunny Foo-Foo” as you snip (for field mice revenge).
We used a small colander to hold some of the pops, but it didn’t hold that many, so I also placed some in water glasses.
When the chocolate is set, dip the tops into green candy melts. I thought it would be cute to add green coconut also, but I didn’t have any. (Typical!) Press the bunny head into the green candy and let it set.
