I’ve got a few treats coming your way this Valentine’s Day. Let’s start with mini marshmallow pops!

These are a white chocolate, miniature version of the dark chocolate marshmallow pops I made for Christmas last year.

My future father-in-law complained that the regular sized marshmallows were too large. So this time, I subbed in mini marshmallows. In the process, I realized this recipe would be great for kids. Coincidence?

Use one to two bars of good white chocolate. Melt on low heat on the stove top. Prep your marshmallows by inserting toothpicks for dipping.

Add a couple of drops of red food coloring to the white chocolate. Technically, you should use an oil-based dye because water-based coloring will ruin the chocolate. I used a water-based dye here and it was fine with only a few drops.

Coat the marshmallows in chocolate and then decorate them how you like. You could use colorful sprinkles, coarse sugar, powdered sugar, or leave them plain.

Use red string to assemble them into a petit bouquet.

But… marshmallows aren’t vegetarian! They contain gelatine, made from connective tissue from animals (generally cow or pig).

Those look super cute though!

Good point! I use vegan/vegetarian marshmallows when possible. You can usually find them at Whole Foods. That said, marshmallows are one of those exceptional foods that I personally don’t feel too bad about consuming because I eat them so rarely. It’s an individual choice and I think some vegetarians are a bit more flexible in their diet than others. I’ve been following this diet about 3 years now, so I’m still working on issues and ironing out the kinks. Thanks again for your comment!

They look so sweet! My cravings for marshmallows have just started…

Thanks, Gournmantine! Sweet is the perfect way to describe these. :)

SO CUTE! I love these! :)

Jen @ Keepitsimplefoods February 13, 2011 at 9:39 am

Thanks, Sara!

These sound yummy. I love white chocolate and I love marshmallows!! There is a gas station by my house that sales chocolate dipped “gourmet” marshmallows for $2 each. Crazy huh and people buy them. By the way, I love your green pan.

Jen @ Keepitsimplefoods February 13, 2011 at 9:39 am

Thanks, Jenn. I agree, why pay for stuff like this when you can easily (and inexpensively) make it at home. I’m super picky and super frugal so I prefer to make it myself.
Got that green fondue pot at a garage sale years ago. It cost a dollar, I think. It has been good to me.

Ooh, what a great idea…I love marshmallows (my evil, sugary side)! It’s so cute…

Jen @ Keepitsimplefoods February 12, 2011 at 8:51 pm

Thank you, Charissa! I’m kind of obsessed with marshmallows right now. Another marshmallow recipe to come tomorrow-stay tuned!

Thanks, Lauren! They are super fun and so easy. You can decorate them however you like, the possibilities are endless.

these look super cute! i will have to make some for my clients for a little valentine’s day treat!

Jen @ Keepitsimplefoods February 12, 2011 at 10:06 am

Thanks, Alli! You could use large marshmallows and put them on long, kabob skewers and tie a ribbon around, just like a real bouquet!

Estela @ Weekly Bite February 11, 2011 at 2:57 pm

What a super cute idea!! I love how easy they are to make :)

Jen @ Keepitsimplefoods February 11, 2011 at 3:34 pm
