I love the squeals from children when they see these Halloween Marshmallow Pops and are so excited to get their hands on them. Believe it or not you don’t have to be 5 years old to have that same excitement with this fun Marshmallow PopTreat, trust me. So grab a bag ofCampfire Marshmallows and follow along to make these fun Candy Corn Halloween Marshmallow Pops.
Step 1: Heat for 30 seconds and then stir. At this point they won’t have melted much but you are stirring to move everything around so you don’t have hot spots
Step 2: Heat for 30 more seconds and then StirStir Stir. As you stir more candy wafers will melt but you will still have plenty of large pieces and that’s okay.
Step 3: Heat for 15 seconds more. You guested it, STIR! You do NOT want to over heat. It’s best to heat in 15 second intervals until mostly smooth. The last remaining candy wafers typically melt from the heat and stirring will result in a nice smooth melt.
Melt Candy Wafer - Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker
Step 1: Pour 2 cups of water into Instant Pot /Pressure Cooker
Step 2: Place Glass Bowl on top of Instant Pot /Pressure Cooker
Step 3: Press Saute and allow Instant Pot to heat up. The steam created from the boiling water will heat the glass bowl and melt the candy melts.
Step 4: With a silicone spatula, stir. Stir until candy melts are melted
Step 5: Press Cancel and set to “Keep Warm”. This mode will give just enough warmth to keep the candy melts smooth while you are dipping.
Making Halloween Marshmallow Pops
Poke sticks into each marshmallow. I poke in ¾ of the thickness of the marshmallow to secure.
Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. You need to be able to lift and peel the hardened candy wafer off of the pan easily and parchment paper is the key.
Dip each Marshmallow one at a time. You want to cover 75% of the marshmallow leaving the top white. Don’t forget to allow the excess candy melt to drop off. Shake off what you can into the bowl or mug.
Repeat the process until you have covered all theMarshmallows.
Melt the Yellow Candy Wafer by your preferred method. Again, it’s important to use a bowl with tall sides or a mug works great too.
Start with the first marshmallow you dipped in Orange candy wafers, It should be dry and ready for the yellow. Dip 25% of the marshmallow into the yellow coating so you can see a nice thick ring of orange.
Repeat with remaining marsh mallows and allow them all to fully harden
Tip: Wilton makes a real nice bag for Cake Pops that works nicely or a Candy Apple Bag could work. But even aSandwich Baggie would work well.
When melting Candy Wafers or Chocolate it’s important no water gets added. This will seize up the candy wafer and make it chalky. It’s also impossible to save once this happens. Be careful that steam does not collect on the spatula and fall intoUse a Mug or bowl with tall sides for dipping candy wafers. It's easier to cover 3/4 in Orange with a bowl or much with tall sides.Wait until candy wafers are hardened before placing in plastic bags.
