I knew when I spotted this picture on Pinterest (from Vanessa of SeeVanessaCraft.com’s absolutely adorable goldfish-themed birthday party–seriously, check it out!  I die.) that I would somehow have to include Goldfish Marshmallow Pops on our mermaid party menu.  Goldfish….mermaids….things that swim….it fits, right?

As luck would have it, I already had everything I needed on hand, including the blue colored candy melts.  (I think this might be the sign of a true craft hoarder, but I’ll just choose to believe I am just well-prepared.  Don’t burst my bubble.)  The main difference was that I decided to make mine with coconut marshmallows so that they would be right-side up instead of upside down.

The kids absolutely loved them and they were much faster & easier to make than regular cake pops, which makes me think marshmallow pops might be our new party go-to treat.  Thank you Vanessa, for this awesome idea!

Step 1:  Melt the candy melts in the microwave.  Add vegetable oil if necessary to create a smooth, dippable (yes, that’s totally a word) consistency.

Step 2: Dip your stick in the candy, then stick into marshmallow.  Repeat for all marshmallows, then refrigerate for 10 minutes until candy is hardened.

Step 3:  Reheat candy slightly if necessary.  Dip a marshmallow almost all the way into candy mixture, leaving a small line of coconut exposed at the bottom.

Step 4:  While candy is wet, quickly press in a goldfish and two pearl “bubbles,” then set on the stand to dry. Repeat steps 3 & 4 until all marshmallows are complete.

    These are so cute! I have wanted to try making cake pops forever but they always seem like so much work. These I think I can handle! Where did you get the coconut marshmallows? I’ve never seen those before!

    These are so cute! When I first looked at them, they looked complicated, but your directions make it seem like a simple and fun project.

    So glad I remembered you threw a mermaid party! Bella’s last-minute, no-theme 4th birthday party has quickly turned into a “Little Mermaid” party….it’s this Sunday and even though it’s still last-minute, these marshamallow pops and the oyster cookies will make adorable additions (and help make it look not quite so last-minute). 😉 Thanks Ruth! xo
