Marshmellow Snow Pops - Really Cheap and Easy.

If you haven't got the time or kit to make cake pops these are a really good (cheap!) alternative.  Dead easy and fun for kids.

You will need to make 20-30

  • Marshmellows - 85p (Asda)
  • White Chocolate - 60p (Asda)
  • Desiccated coconut - 96p (Asda)
  • Skewers or lolly sticks - kitchen cupboard?
  • Sweets and cake decorations - kitchen cupboard?
  • Cardboard box covered in foil to make a stand (I used an old taco shell box) - kitchen cupboard?

All you need to do is...
  1. Put something heavyish in the box to stop it blowing over, then cover in foil. Punch holes through the cardboard along the top of the box with a skewer.
  2. Melt the chocolate over boiling water.
  3. Put a marshmallow on the top of a skewer and dip it into the white chocolate, make sure the whole marshmallow is covered.
  4. Shake off excess chocolate drips before dipping into a bowl of desiccated coconut.
  5. Put the skewer into the stand to semi dry and repeat stages 3, 4 & 5 with more marshmallows.
  6. Leave them 10 mins is to dry off a bit, but not completely set, then get creative. I tried using cake decorations but the colours weren't strong enough so I cut up some Harribo with scissors and used other sweets to create the faces and accessories. Just use the semi-runny white chocolate as glue to stick the extra bits on.
How about personalising each snowman to look like friends and family?
