Super Easy, Super Cute Marshmallow Pops

Okay so just in case you really wanted a DIY here it is:

Last week Flip and I made these gorgeous marshmallow pops

To start with I gave some wooden kebab skewers a quick spray with cooking oil to help the marshmallows not to stick too much

Thread on a marshmallow and very quickly dip in water

Shake off excess water

Dip in jelly crystals (hey I never said they were healthy!) and pop in a jar or similar to allow them to dry

** You do need to shake off the excess water or it makes the jelly crystals wet and lumpy**

We used lemon and raspberry and they had a slightly sherbert/sour taste on the outside which complimented the marshmallow beautifully.

OR – thread the marshmallows and dip in melted chocolate and then in sprinkles (or not) which is one of my all time favourite combos chocolate and marshmallow – oh.so.good

It seems to be a peculiarly kiwi thing – pineapple lumps, pinky bars, perky nanas, marshmallow Easter eggs, mallowpuffs….. I missed them all in the UK.

I love these for a party or just to make an exciting-looking and easy treat.
