Marshmallow, coconut and chocolate sheep on a stick! What could be sweeter?!
Marshmallow Sheep Pops
You will need
- Lollipop sticks
- Shredded coconut
- Melted white chocolate chips (or candy melts)
- Tootsie rolls
- Sequin confetti sprinkles
- Yellow heart confetti sprinkles
- Black edible marker (or black food coloring and a fine tip paintbrush/toothpick)
Using the heat of your hands, knead tootsie roll until pliable and shape 1 head (ball- you can also use a malted milk ball for the head), 4 legs (log shape), 2 ears (tear drop shape), and a tail. Set aside.
Push the lollipop stick through the rounded side of the marshmallow (make sure not to poke it all the way through). Dip marshmallow in a bowl of melted white chocolate and roll in shredded coconut. Using the melted chocolate as a glue, attach the head, ears, legs and tail. Attach some shredded coconut or ripped up marshmallow to the top of the head, 2 white sequin confetti sprinkles for eyes, and an upside down heart sprinkle directly under the head for a bell (optional).
Using your edible marker draw on pupils, a heart for the nose, and a smile for the mouth.
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. Even tie a custom tag to the stick to use as a personalized gift or place setting!
