It’s only a month until half-term and Halloween, which means it’s time for me to start planning our Annual Pumpkin Party. I had an idea for a no-bake cake-pop after seeing my daughters toast marshmallows on our last camping trip, so I wanted to test it out. I’m very pleased with my pumpkin cake-pops, and the Girls even more, because they can help make them.
- lollipop sticks
- orange candy melts, or melted white chocolate which has been coloured orange
- edible marker for detail
Once you have melted your candy melts according to the instructions, leave them in their bowl over a pan of steaming water. This will keep them melted whilst you work.
Taking your first lollipop stick, dip the end in the melted chocolate, then poke into a marshmallow.
Leave to firm up and repeat with your other marshmallows.
Once all your marshmallows have sticks, go back to the first and dip into the melted candies until covered. I actually found it easier to use the back of a spoon to cover the marshmallow.
Repeat with other marshmallow lollies and leave to dry: I found an upended strainer to be thr perfect thing to keep the sticks upright so that they dried evenly.
Once dry, add details with edible markers.
Serve to trick-or-treaters.
