sunflower marshmallow pops, the other way


And now for sunflower marshmallows, part two… the even easier way! Come on, how many of you predicted this exact outcome? Once again, I made these ages upon ages ago, back before I lost my days to home renovation and a 4 and 11/12 year old.



To make sunflower marshmallow pops:


You will need:


lollipop sticks

food coloring pens

green food coloring

wax paper

paint brush


*Find the lollipop sticks, food coloring and paint brush at the craft store. You may also find food coloring pens there, though I recommend Americolor Gourmet Writers or the FooDoodler Fine Line pack of ten, both available in specialty stores or online. I have a whole post all about food coloring pens HERE.


What to do:

Mix a few drops of green food coloring with a couple drops of water on a piece of wax paper. Paint the lollipop sticks green and let them rest on the wax paper until dry. Draw and fill a brown circle, then draw yellow petals surrounding the circle. I also added a few highlights with orange. Skewer the marshmallow with a lollipop stick and that’s it!

    Absolutely precious, as always! I’m so enchanted with these little painted marshmallows. I just need actually to give them a try at some point!
