If you've seen my past few posts featuring Moreaya's First Birthday, you've probably seen a glimpse of my Goldfish Marshmallow Pops.

Goldfish Marshmallow Pops

Since I wasn't responsible for the Birthday Cake, I wanted to make a little treat that would match the theme, but still be relatively easy.  This one is!  Marshmallow Pops are so customizable too.  I made some Mickey Mouse themed ones for Sophia's Mickey Mouse 2nd Birthday Party

These go perfect with a Beach Party theme, Under the Sea theme… anything you can think of!

Goldfish Marshmallow Pops Ingredients

The ingredients are extremely simple:

Large Marshmallows, Candy Melts {thank goodness my store had blue so I didn't have to tint them!}, Sucker Sticks, Graham Crackers or Graham Cracker Crumbs, Wax Paper, and Goldfish!

Candy Melts in Double Boiler

I have a small double boiler that I used for the Candy Melts.  I melted 1 1/2 bags for 25 Marshmallow Pops, but 1 bag would have been plenty.

Marshmallows

A little tip is to put the marshmallows in the freezer for just a few minutes.  This makes them not move around so much and stay still on your sticks!

I DIY-ed my Graham Cracker crumbs.  I had one lonely pack of graham crackers, so I crushed them to make my sand!

I added just a bit of shortening to the candy melts to make it a smoother, thinner consistency.  I still struggled with excess on the marshmallow.  I gently shook off as much as I could.

Then dip the bottom of the marshmallow in the graham cracker crumbs to make your sand.  Immediately stick on a Goldfish and place on your wax paper to harden!

VOILA!

Beach Party Dessert Table

I served the Goldfish Marshmallow Pops alongside Moreaya's Birthday Cake, but they could easily be served as a stand alone dessert.  They're yummy!

After using sucker sticks this time and paper straws on the Mickey Mouse Marshmallow Pops, I would definitely say that I prefer using the Paper Straws.  They are stronger and larger, so it's easier to make them stand up straighter.  Although, if you use the Paper Straws, be sure to make a small X with a knife where your straw will go, so it's easier to put it in the marshmallow when it's a little frozen.

    I am always looking for fun things to do with my grandchildren and I know they will like this. It also is easy enough for them to do after I melt and coat the marshmallows.
