We all need more Kool Aid recipes in our life, and so I give you Kool Aid marshmallow pops.
Kool Aid marshmallow pops
Kool Aid marshmallow pops! Marshmallows dunked in Kool Aid create a colorful, flavorful no-bake summer treat.
Anybody else remember when the Kool-Aid man used to bust through walls? Does he still do that? I haven’t had the stuff since I was a kid, and I haven’t seen a commercial (thank you, Netflix) in about as long. We also had the Kool-Aid man video game for Intellivision. I don’t need to tell you the graphics were top notch. Preeetty awesome. Oh, yeah!
Kool-Aid comes to the rescue for a quick and easy way to add a touch of flavor and color to marshmallows. Want an even cooler summer treat? Store them in the fridge. The Kool-Aid taste is not super strong on the marshmallows, but it does add a little something extra. And they are so pretty.

how to make Kool Aid marshmallow pops
you will need:*
Kool-Aid packets in varying colors
glasses or small mason jars
*Yellow Kool-Aid is too light, so choose flavors that are red, orange, blue, purple or green. Find lollipop sticks in the craft store.
what to do:
Pour a packet of Kool-Aid (about 1 tablespoon) in a glass or small mason jar. Mix in 1/4 to 1/2 cup water, or enough so the marshmallow can be submerged.
Skewer a marshmallow with a lollipop. Submerge the marshmallow in the Kool-Aid for 10 to 15 seconds. Remove and prop in a Styrofoam block. Use a paper towel to catch drips.
Let the marshmallow pops dry for 15 minutes. The color will set and deepen as the marshmallow dries. If desired, store in the refrigerator.

These are soo “Kool” AND pretty! The other day I mentioned to my daughter about her making the kids some Kool-aid. She was all like..”no way Mom”! Maybe I made it too much for her and her brother while they were growing up. But just wait till I show her your marshmallow pops..love them! 🙂
Haha, thank you ladies!!
Late to the party – but I had my Girl Scouts make these for snack while we were working on the Painting badge. They were a hit! Thanks for the recipe!
Yay! That’s fantastic! (I’m a new Girl Scout daisy leader myself.)
These will be so cute in an Easter basket thanks for the idea
Does the due reach the inside of the marshmallow ???
Hi Reannah, The dye does not reach inside the marshmallow, it remains white.
