Pin It and Do It #4: Marshmallow pops

The Pin It and Do It -challenge continues. This pin was my inspiration when I was thinking of something sweet and small I could give as a present to my mom on Mother's Day. The original picture was from Cakes&Sweets tumblr page.

I'm really not good when it comes to baking or creating some dessert chocolate mini gourmet bites. I like to buy that stuff from a confectionery and not spend hours trying to create something that looks like a blob of melted sugar. That's why I was bit sceptical with this project and I had no back-up plan. It was either going to work out or I had no present at all to give!

After I had already melted all the chocolate I realized I had nothing to stick those pops into. I rummaged through my closets and found a sponge I had bought for another DIY project. I wrapped it into silk paper and my tray was ready to go.

The process of making these marshmallow pops wasn't easy either. I think the chocolate was too thin so it was really messy and dribbled all over. Also I shoud've put those finished pops straight into fridge so the topping would've hardened faster but in the end it all worked out fine for a first try and I'm quite proud with the results! I'll definitely make more later (but never for a big group of guests).




P.S. My mom loved these. She couldn't decide which one was her favorite, but she usually loves hazelnuts so I'm guessing that was the most popular option.

  2. They look really great!! And I bet you could do this with bits of fruit as well--maybe after they're frozen so they're not mushy. Bananas and chocolate and coconut? Yes please. :) Glad your mom enjoyed them, too!
