8 long wooden/lollipop sticks I used gold colored sticks for the final products, and some white sticks to help with dipping.
1 styrafoam block / half sphere
24regular sized marshmallows
12ouncesgreen candy meltsI used Wilton
12ounces white candy meltsI used Wilton
Gold and silver confetti sprinkles
Gold, silver & green sanding sugar
Gold food color spray
Black food sparkle gel
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a small, microwaveable bowl, melt 1 - 1 ½ cups of one color candy melts according to package instructions. Do not overheat. Once candy is smooth, put one marshmallow on a stick (stick can be poked all the way through except for the marshmallow you plan to be on top).
Dip the marshmallow into the candy melts at a 45° angle, twisting the stick until the marshmallow is fully covered. Gently tap the stick on the edge of the bowl to get rid of excess candy. (If adding sprinkles or sanding sugar, add while the candy melts are still wet. This will make them stick once the candy dries. For gel or drizzling, add once candy is dry.)
Once a marshmallow is ready to dry, carefully remove it from the stick (using scissors works great) and set it on the parchment paper, the side with the hole facing upwards.
If you’d like the marshmallow to have a smooth top, put the stick into the styrofoam for the marshmallow to dry.
Repeat all steps again with the other color of candy melts.
Once all marshmallows are completely dried and decorated, assemble 3 on each stick and eat!
Remember: If adding sprinkles or sanding sugar, add while the candy melts are still wet. This will make them stick once the candy dries. When adding the gel or drizzling, add once candy is completely dry.
