(diy tutorial) candy cane marshmallow pops

On the 6th day of Christmas…
Why is it that things taste better on a stick? All I know is that these marshmallow pops are yummy! They are also super easy to make and your wee little ones can help you. Even my 16 month old got in on the candy cane crushing action. Eat these while sipping on some hot chocolate. Heck, plop one in your hot chocolate and use as a stir. Enjoy!

Step 3: Melt chocolate chips according to the directions on the bag. I melted my chips in the microwave for 1 minute, stirred, melted for an additional 30 seconds, stirred, melted for a final 30 seconds and stirred.

Step 4: Stick a lollipop stick in a marshmallow and dip the marshmallow halfway in chocolate. It may be easier to hold on to the marshmallow, instead of the stick, while dipping.
