I've made these marshmallow pops before and I tend to use the idea for last minute occasions where I don't have the time (or ingredients) to bake.
There's no baking involved and of course you don't HAVE to use ginormous marshmallows...but they do taste better in my opinion.
I used paper straws instead of lollipop sticks and candy melts to coat the marshmallow pops. You could also use chocolate but I love the colours I get using Candy Melts so I always have a small stock in my baking cupboard.
Try these for any holiday, I can assure you the kids will love them and as there's no baking involved they can help make them too!
