Come up with a unique design to decorate marshmallow pops. Start by choosing the types of marshmallows you are looking for. Marshmallows come indeed in different shapes and sizes — big, regular, small, rope-shaped, heart-shaped, etc.. You can also personalize the marshmallows by cutting them, using scissors and water to avoid stickiness. Another option is to make your own homemade marshmallows and tailor them to suit your taste.

How to Decorate Marshmallow Pops - Step 1

Once you have determined the ideal shape for your marshmallows, you may add the stick to finalize the look. Candy sticks are safer options, especially for children, but you can also get regular barbecue bamboo or paper sticks, depending on your project. To insert the stick into the marshmallow is fairly easy, dip it in water and insert.

Choose a dipping of your choice. You can find many interesting projects online. A typical topping can be milk chocolate, white chocolate, caramel or a customized dipping sauce. The dipping is usually melted. Dip the pops one by one in the dipping or drizzle the dipping across the marshmallow pops to customize your treats.
