12 ounce candy melts
1 bag jumbo marshmallows (25 marshmallows)
Sprinkles and/or sugar crystals
Cake pop sticks
Individual cellophane bags (found by party supplies in most grocery stores)

Melt candy melts in a bowl, according to directions.

Lay out wax paper, and dip marshmallows in the warmed candy melt, covering about 1/4 up the side of the marshmallow. Lay chocolate side up on the wax paper. Sprinkle with toppings while chocolate is still melted. Work in batches of 5 (dip, then sprinkle). Repeat until all marshmallows are decorated.

Let dry completely, then flip over and gently push the stick through the bottom of the marshmallow. Wrap each pop individually in cellphone bags.

These work for any holiday, just adjust the color of the sprinkles accordingly. Use green for St. Patrick’s Day, a variety of pastels for Easter or red and blue for Memorial Day.
