Valentine’s marshmallow pops
  • marshmallows
  • chocolate for melting
  • cake pop sticks (or straws would work equally well)
  • sprinkles to decorate-I used chocolate strands, mini nonpareilles (which are posh 100s and 1000s) red mini toffee, white chocolate sprinkles and dessicated coconut.

With a sharp knife make a small incision in the end of a marshmallow and stick in your cake pop stick. Continue until you’ve skewered all the marshmallows. Pop them in the freezer for 5 minutes, this will make them easier to work with. Meanwhile decide which colour chocolate you want to begin with first and melt it in the microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring regularly and taking care not to burn it. Dip the marshmallows one at a time into the melted chocolate. It’s trial and error to see how much chocolate you need to use but it’s not rocket science! I got out a load of mugs and stood the marshmallows in them so I didn’t smudge the chocolate. This was a bit like a reverse game of Kerplunk, trying not to touch sticks! Before the chocolate is completely set dip into whichever sprinkles you’ve decided to use. I would recommend using dessicated coconut on a few of them as it gives such a lovely texture and tastes delicious. When I did the pink chocolate I left a few of them plain and twiddled the marshmallow on the edge of the bowl to get a sort of rose effect. I displayed them in a mini vase and a jam jar, they made the perfect centrepiece for a dinner party and everyone really enjoyed them. How about you, will you make anything for Valentine’s day?
