These no-bake pops are made of marshmallows and candy melts. They are super easy, inexpensive, and as fun to make as they are to eat. They are a perfect St. Patrick's Day party treat.
I have also made a classic version of these for other occasions without using mini marshmallows, so if you like these be sure to check out my beer pop tutorial for a variation on the mug handle.
Green Beer Marshmallow Pops
You will need
- Lollipop sticks
- Regular size marshmallow and mini marshmallow
- Melted white & Green candy melts (available in the baking/candy aisle of most arts and crafts stores)
Push the lollipop stick through the flat side of the marshmallow (make sure not to poke it all the way through). Cut a rectangle out of the center of the mini marshmallow for the handle.
In 2 separate bowls, melt green and white candy melts according to package. Dip marshmallow into bowl of green candy melts. Gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl to let any excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. Attach "handle" while still wet. (I stick my pops in a Styrofoam block to dry, but anything you can find to make them stand up straight will work. You can also just lay them on their side on wax paper if you don't mind the back side getting flattened.)
Once the green has dried, dip the top of the pop into your melted white chocolate. It's ok if it drips down the side of the "mug"... this makes it look more authentic. And there you have some non-alcoholic mugs o' beer.
You can individually wrap your pops in clear plastic bags for a party favor, or you can create a display for your pops. To create a display that your pops can stand upright in, take a block of Styrofoam and wrap it in festive wrapping paper or tissue paper. Push the bottom of each stick into the styrofoam for guests to easily grab and enjoy.
