St Patrick's Day Marshmallow Pops

These leprechaun marshmallow pops are one of my favorite 
St. Patrick's Day treats that I have made.  

I made these awhile back, so the pictures are not the greatest, but you can see how I made them.   

For each leprechaun you will need three marshmallows, two of the regular size, and one mini.

Place the bottom marshmallow upright on a lollipop stick , and coat it with Wilton green candy melts .  Leave a bit space on the top of the stick, because you will be adding another marshmallow for the head.  

The best way to dry your pop is by standing it up in a floral foam ring or block.  You can find several shapes and sizes at the Dollar Tree . In this picture you can see how to place the top marshmallow on its side, which will be the leprechaun's head.

I used edible food markers  to draw on the face can not remember which brand I used, but I think this dual tip set that is highly rated looks really good.  

I used orange squeezable frosting in a bottle to add his beard and hair. 

The last step was to make his hat.  I put a mini marshmallow on a toothpick and dipped in the green candy melt.  Once there were dry I added them to the top of his head with a little bit of melted chocolate to act as glue. 

A fun way to display the leprechauns is in a pot of gold.  I made this with a black pot from Halloween, a little bit of floral foam, and glass accent gems from the Dollar Tree painted gold. 

These were not only fun to make, but yummy to eat! 

I have two fun games you can play while you eat your leprechaun pops.  One is this find the Find the Leprechauns Treasure Hunt.  You use the clue to find the three hiding leprechauns.

In this St. Patrick's Day game you look for the Pot of Gold.  Both games are a lot of fun.
