Graduation Party Dessert: Class of 2015 Marshmallow Pops

Graduation parties are all about celebrating the recent graduates and their classmates, which is why I love making the grad year a big focus on everything from the desserts to the decor. For this year, I made these simple yet delicious Class of 2015 Marshmallow Pops! 

I made each pop a little bit different to mix up the toppings and flavors, but with the focus being on the peanut butter candy melts, any toppings are possible; chocolate sprinkles, sea salt or even mini chocolate chips. To indicate the year, I used piping gel to spell out the 2-0-1-5. Have fun with the colors and use your school colors. You can do that with the icing and the popsicle sticks; you can even use striped paper straws as the base for your sticks!

I displayed them in sets of 4 in mini mason jars. Fill the mason jars with anything to keep the pops upright in the styrofoam —  chocolate chips, jelly beans, confetti or whatever you want. 



  • Big marshmallows
  • Lollipop sticks or colorful paper straws
  • Peanut butter candy melts
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Piping gel or icing
  • Styrofoam block

Start by melting the peanut butter candy melts. Place the candy melts on a heatproof bowl and place over a small pot of simmering water. Stirring

Place a lollipop stick or paper straw into the center of the bottom of each marshmallow.

Dip the marshmallow into the melted candy melts. You can either completely melt them or just dip half of the marshmallow in, whatever you prefer.

Immediately sprinkle the chocolate sprinkles over the marshmallow pops and place the stick into the Styrofoam block to dry completely.

Once the marshmallow pops have completely hardened, use the piping gel/icing to write 2, 0, 1 and 5 on the marshmallow pops.

Make as many sets of 4 as you want to spell out 2015To serve, keep the marshmallow pops in the styrofoam (just wrap in with a festive wrapping paper to match your theme), or place chocolate chips into cups and/or jars and place the pops into the jars.
