MYO Marshmallow Pop Station – Yummy fun for everyone!

This is a fun and quick children’s party activity for even very young children. If they can hold a lollipop stick they can participate. It could be adapted into quite a few party themes or color schemes.

Basically, it’s along the idea of a MYO cupcake or cookie decorating station except that the kids will dip a marshmallow pop into melted chocolate (you could offer several chocolate color choices, or white and milk chocolate choices). Prepare 5-7 choices of toppings to dip their chocolate-dipped pop into, such as; crushed Graham cracker crumbs, crushed Oreo or chocolate mint cookie crumbs, chopped peanuts (be aware of peanut allergies), rainbow sprinkles, colored sugar crystals, Rice Krispies cereal, Fruity Pebbles cereal, micro-mini chocolate chips, mini M and M’s, or crushed peppermints.

Supplies needed:

1 package of Wilton Candy Melts in each color or type you want to offer
1 pkg 4″or 6″lollipop sticks, allow 4-5 per child
XLarge Camp-More Marshmallows available at iParty, regular large marshmallows or make your own homemade marshmallows
5-7 ‘dip’ choices to dip pops into
5-7 identical bowls for dips, plus 2-3 for melted chocolate choices
A dinner-sized paper plate per guest
1 plastic tablecloth
1 baking sheet covered with parchment paper (with pen, draw narrow rows on the paper and put a guest name at the end of each row)

Cover your activity table with a plastic tablecloth. Prepare ‘dipping’ bowls and fill bowls with candy melts. Put out a paper plate for each child around the table to work over and catch falling dipping crumbs.

Melt your chocolate according to package directions shortly before the guests are ready to make their pops. As the kids finish their pops put them onto their row on the baking sheet to harden.

Let each child eat one or two now, and bag the rest in cellophane party favor bags to go home as favors.
