Do you need a super simple St. Patrick's Day treat? I have the perfect answer….St. Patrick's Day Decorated Marshmallows. This sweet delight is so easy to make and even fun for the kids to help you with.
St. Patrick's Day Decorated Marshmallows
I actually had all the ingredients I needed on hand to make these. My kids like to eat marshmallows as snacks. I had bought some almond bark on clearance after Christmas and of course I always have lots of sprinkles in my cupboard. Remember….you probably don't need to buy special St. Patrick's Day sprinkles…look at your Christmas and Easter stash and you probably have some green sprinkles already!
Ingredients Needed for St. Patrick's Day Decorated Marshmallows
Bag of Giant Puffed Marshmallows (you could use smaller ones, but the giant ones are fun)
Package of white almond bark
Package of lollipop sticks
Green Sprinkles –here are some fun sprinkles
How to Make St. Patrick's Day Decorated Marshmallows
These directions will vary based on how many marshmallows you need to make!!
Melt some of the white almond bark in a microwaveable bowl. I like to start with a minute and then stir. Then I add 15-30 seconds and then stir and add more time as needed until melted. I like to melt a small amount and then melt more as needed so it doesn't get wasted. It is hard to tell how much you will need.
Put a lollipop stick into the bottom of your marshmallow.
Gently coat the marshmallow in the melted almond bark.
Cover the covered marshmallow with sprinkles before the almond bark dries.
Allow to harden. I like to use my cookie drying rack to cool my decorated marshmallows. I came up with this technique when I was making decorated pretzels for Halloween one year. It works great! I put a towel underneath the rack so that the sticks don't slide around.
Once hardened you can package in clear treat bags, put into a vase or even display on a pretty platter! Here are some fun ideas for displaying your St. Patrick's Day Decorated Marshmallows.
