North Pole Pops

If you had a chance to read yesterday’s post on creating an easy marshmallow bar then you already know we’re big fans of simple projects the whole family can enjoy. I know today will probably be a super busy day for a lot of you. You may be busy traveling or fluffing the house to get it ready for family and friends.

I’m getting excited about the entire weekend which will include hosting friends, making s’mores by the fire pit, eating great food, hanging out in my jammers and taking random naps in the afternoon. It’s going to be tons of fun!

I don’t know how it is at your house but at ours there is always an interesting few hours between the time the littles wake up from their nap and the time we eat dinner. We’re always looking for something fun to do with them in the kitchen because they love “helping.” Yes, I meant to put that in air quotes he he. As with the marshmallow bar, these North Pole Pops are crazy easy to make and your family members can customize them with that they like best. Here are the details you need to know if you want to make a few North Pole Pops too…

You’ll need to pick up some melting chocolates at the store. We bought this white chocolate melts at Hobby Lobby in the cake decorating section.

Place the chips in a bowl and

melt the chocolates in the microwave according to the directions on the back of the bag.

While the chocolate is melting, gather other supplies. You need marshmallows rice cereal treats (we used these Rice Krispies Treats which are individually wrapped and you can find at your local grocery store),

and candy canes (make sure candy canes are unwrapped if wrapped).

Make a ball with the marshmallow cereal treats

then carefully put the flat edge of the candy cane into the ball.

Use the hook as a stem and gently swirl the marshmallow cereal treat into the melted white chocolate.

You can either leave the pop with just the white chocolate topping or you can add coconut, toasted coconut or silver sprinkles so it will look like your pop has “snow.” Allow the chocolate and toppings to set as per melting chips instructions.
