Skittles marshmallow pops



You know how I pulverized a whole bunch of Skittles that Wrigley sent me to make straws? Well, I had tons left over, so naturally I had to turn to marshmallows and lollipop sticks. Because it’s necessary to coat candy with more candy.



To make Skittles-coated marshmallow pops…. First, separate and grind your Skittles (find those instructions HERE). Then skewer a marshmallow, dip in a bowl of water, dab the marshmallow on a paper towel, hold the marshmallow over a bowl and sprinkle the ground Skittles over the marshmallow to generously coat. Prop in a Styrofoam block and let dry.

    I love your creativity. Coating candy with more candy.. I LOVE it!

    I can imagine just how good these taste when you bite into them and resisting licking that yummy skittle dust that will form on your lips. Yum!

    Very pretty AND I’d like one right now. I call dibs on the red one! What a cool way to add more great flavor to marshmallows! I know these will be a big seller at school bake sales. No baking required makes it even better.

    Oh gosh, gee, I don’t know if I’d say “brilliant.” I might say “brilliant genius.” :)

    Lisa, these were way better than even dipping just in sprinkles. Something about the Skittles flavors… and the combo made them extra soft inside, I don’t know. It was magic.

    Katrina, why, I love you, too, ever so much.

    Barbara, sold, you got the red.

    Thank you all!

    I would love to say I got this b/c I knew the new baby would live it someday but in truth I really had to get it for my 17-year-old son who could eat his weight in skittles :) I sure can’t wait to see my oldest baby holding my youngest baby!

    they look super cute, how do they taste? I wonder how sugar loaded we could get off these, LOL.

    Definitely sugar on top of sugar Sue, but I thought they tasted way better than even marshmallows dipped in sprinkles! they water/Skittles combo made the marshmallows inside stay nice and soft and the Skittles added flavor to each one. I couldn’t eat a bagful, but yum, so so so good!

    Candy topping candy is just a perfect snack isn’t it?

    What a great idea.

    Oh yes. These need to happen in my life. My dentist thanks you.

    Wow, Phyllis, I’m picturing 300 marshmallow pops :) !! Whatta sight. Please do post pictures! And side note: sprinkles instead of the Skittles will make things go much, much quicker when you have so many to do!

    I’ve made Skittles Vodka and loved it, do you think I could dip the marshmallow in Vodka rather than water (for the adults lol).
    great idea by the way!

    Yes. Yes I do. I think that would be genius!!

    tried it with vodka, think i need to leave them in a little longer, also how do you crush the skittles to get a fine powder, as i struggled :)

    Midi, I used a coffee grinder. It worked like a charm. I was surprised how fine it got the Skittles, given the chewy insides. After grinding a LOT (way more than I needed), the grinder started collecting the Skittles and it got stickier and stickier. I should’ve stuck with just a smaller batch.

    Brilliant. How far in advance could these be made and still be tasty?

    Hi Vanessa, kept in a sealed container, I’d not go more than a few days, though these didn’t last long. But Skittles and marshmallows each independently last awhile, so maybe they’d go even longer!
