Chocolate Turkey Marshmallow Pops for Thanksgiving
With Thanksgiving around the corner, I thought it would be a great idea to share this cute Chocolate Turkey Marshmallow Pops recipe. I bought some Dandies marshmallow on sale last weekend at Sprouts (and I stacked it with a $0.50/1 Dandies coupon 🙂 ), so it was perfect timing for this DIY recipe!
These Chocolate Turkey Marshmallow Pops are super easy to make and if you have kids, they’ll love making these with you. Bring them to your Thanksgiving gathering and everyone will be gobbling these up!
BTW – check out the cute bowls that I used to hold the ingredients…I posted the deal from Hollar a couple weeks ago on these bowls. I ordered a few sets and I’m in love them! Don’t they look great in the pics? 🙂
- Chocolate Chips/Melts (I used Whole Foods 365 Milk Chocolate)
- Large Marshmallows (I used Dandies Marshmallow)
- Miniature Marshmallows (I used Dandies Marshmallow)
- Candy Eyes
- Red Hot Candies
- Orange Tic Tacs
- Red, Orange and Yellow Sanding Sugar (see How to Make Organic Colored Sanding Sugar Recipe if you want to make your own and save some money)
- Sucker sticks
Pour each color of sanding sugar into a small bowl (Red, Orange and Yellow)
Fill a small bowl with water
Take a toothpick and insert into a mini marshmallow. (This is just to be able to handle the marshmallow with ease).
Dip in water and tap on edge of bowl to get excess water off.
Dip into colored sugar. Use your finger and slide the marshmallow off onto parchment paper.
Continue to do this until you have all your mini marshmallows colored. Set them aside and let dry.
While those are drying, take your sucker sticks and insert them towards the back underside of the Large marshmallows. Set aside
Now take and pour your Chocolate discs in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds then take out and stir. Continue to do this until the chocolate is melted.
Take your marshmallow and dip it in the melted chocolate until it’s all coated. Tap on the edge of bowl to get excess chocolate off.
Immediately put on the eyes, nose, and wattle.
While those are hardening you can start making your “feathers”
Take a toothpick and slide on a yellow marshmallow about ½ way down, then an orange and lastly a red. Continue to this until you have all your feathers made.
When everything is dry and or hardened, take 3 feather toothpicks and insert on top back of the marshmallow.
They are ready to be gobbled up!
