Kara and I really enjoy marshmellow pops. I have been looking around online for some ideas for St.Patrick's Day. I found a really cute shamrock pop, but could not find anything for leprachauns. Using only what we had on hand, we came up with this little guy. I would have been able to be more detailed with the face if I had edible markers, but all we had was cookie icing, candy melts and gels.
To make the leprachaun coat, push a marshmellow on a lollipop stick, leaving enough room for another marshmellow. I melted some green Wilton candy melts in the microwave for 60 seconds, stirring at the 30 second mark. I used a spoon to cover the marshmellow with chocolate. I did not dip into the chocolate because it would get green candy all over the stick.
Once the candy coating was hard, I pushed on a second marshmellow onto the stick. This time I turned it on it's side to make the head. Leave just a little bit of room to add a mini marshmellow hat in a later step.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
