Beach Party Marshmellow Pops

With Kara's Beach Bash Birthday in  just a few weeks, we are thinking about what kind of treats to serve.  We want to do some kind of pop.   Our Meijer store recently started carrying the Jumbo Marshmellows which are the perfect size for some swimming and surfing bears.  

Until today I did not realize that Teddy Grahams are not all the same.  Did you know that some of the bears are arms down with feet apart, and some are arms up with feet together?   We used the arms up bears for the little surfers. 

I tried a couple of different types of candy to make surfboards.   Taffy type candy worked well because it is  on the thicker side and is easy to mold.  If you have a piece that is hard to manipulate, microwave for 5 seconds to soften it up.   Either use an oval cookie cutter or mold into shape with your hands. 

I also tried to make surfboards with fruit roll ups.  While they have a cooler look, they stick to the wrapper and are very thin.   If your fruit roll up is too sticky, refridgerate it for a few minutes and it will be easier to pull off the wrapper. 

For the intertuber you would need some sort of ring candy.  These peach rings were the perfect size for the Teddy Grahams. 

It is easier to prepare your bears before melting the chocolate for the marshmellows.

Because the jumbo marshmellows are so big, I used a thicker and longer size stick.  If you use the smaller stick your marshmellow will be top heavy. 

Dip in the marshmellows in melted blue candy melts.  Add your swimming and surfing bears on top of the melted chocolate.
Depending on what candy you find,  you can easily change the colors of the intertubes and surfboards. 

I have linked this treat up on many incrediable blogs.  Please make sure to check out my linky party page and check them out!
