New Year’s Eve gold marshmallow pops are a sparkly fun food idea for your New Year’s Eve party.
My, how quickly this year has flown, yes? Time to bring out the glimmer and sparkle for New Year’s Eve. I’m no stranger to New Year’s Eve marshmallow pops. Check out these ball-drop marshmallow pops. Or these sparkly marshmallow pops. But when I saw this Wilton gold sprinkle pack, I new what the marshmallow pops would look like this year.
My five year old is really into all things gold and metallics, so I sort of also made these for her. And yes, she will be up until midnight on New Year’s Eve. My kids always are, because they are mini-teenagers already.
how to make New Year’s Eve gold marshmallow pops
you will need:*
*I only used the small container of sprinkles, the assortment, shown in the link, which I found at the craft store. You can also find candy melts, lollipop sticks, and Styrofoam blocks at the craft store.
what to do:
Skewer marshmallows with sticks and set aside.
Pour some candy melts in a bowl and melt according to package directions. (I like to melt at 70 percent power for 90 seconds, stir, and continue to microwave at 15 second intervals until the residual heat is enough to fully melt the candy when stirring.)
Dip the marshmallow in the candy melts, tap the stick on the bowl to remove excess, and immediately coat with sprinkles. Prop in the Styrofoam to fully set, about 1 hour.
