Lego Head Marshmallow Pops

These are super easy and if you have a kiddo as in love with legos as mine, you have to make these pronto.  They are easy enough for kids to make and drawing the expressions on with food markers can be especially fun for kids!

LEGO HEAD MARSHMALLOW POPS
Regular and miniature marshmallows
Lollipop sticks
Candy melts
Food safe markers
Heart sprinkles, optional, for girl’s bow

Place a regular marshmallow on a lollipop stick, the end of the stick just slightly sticking through the top.

Cut a miniature marshmallow in half and place on the regular marshmallow, cut side down.  Depress down to “adhere” to the stick.

Melt desired colored candy melts.  If they are too thick, thin with a little canola oil, adding a teaspoon or 2 at a time, until desired consistency.  Don’t go crazy here, if you add too much it might make them blotchy when they dry.  I haven’t had issues when adding a little though, and it sure makes it easier to coat them when you thin it.
I found it easiest to spoon melted candy melts over the marshmallows, turning to coat well, then tapping the stick gently for the excess to drip off.

Stick in some styrofoam to dry (I actually have a 2 by4 that I painted and drilled some holes in that I use for drying and serving cake pops that I use).
When dry, use a food safe marker to add face expressions of choice.  I used 2 heart sprinkles for each pink one for a bow as well.
