Marshmallow Pumpkin Pops

It takes mere seconds to turn plain marshmallows into pumpkins for a quick and easy Fall treat.

  • Marshmallows
  • 4-inch lollipop sticks
  • Orange sprinkles or sanding sugar
  • Bowl of water
  • Paper towels
  • Spearmint leaves gumdrops
  • Scissors
  • Wax paper
  • Paint brush
  • Green and white food coloring
  • Light corn syrup

Have ready: A bowl of water, paper towels, orange sprinkles, an empty bowl or plate and a piece of wax paper. Skewer a marshmallow with a lollipop stick. Holding the lollipop stick, submerge the marshmallow in the bowl of water and quickly remove. Dab the marshmallow on the paper towel to remove excess, then hold the marshmallow over the empty bowl or plate and generously shake the orange sprinkles over the marshmallow to completely coat. Sit the marshmallow on a piece of wax paper to dry.

With the paint brush, mix a drop of green and a drop of white food coloring on a piece of wax paper. If necessary, add a drop or two of water to thin. Carefully paint the lollipop sticks green, and let dry.

Use scissors to snip a piece of gumdrop and rest on top of the marshmallow. If the candy doesn’t stick on its own, add a dab of light corn syrup to use as glue.
