Recipe type: Pops
Serves: 24
  • Jumbo Marshmallows
  • Vanilla CandiQuik
  • Chocolate CandiQuik
  • Miniature Marshmallow Bits
  • Miniature Candy Canes
  • Snowflake (or other holiday) Sprinkles
  • Lollipop Sticks
  1. First, make your mugs. Stick a lollipop stick into the bottom of each jumbo marshmallow, gently pushing it about ⅓ of the way through or enough so the marshmallow is secured on the stick. Gently place the sticks into a styrofoam block to keep them upright.
  2. Melt your Vanilla CandiQuik according to package directions, using the amount you need for the amount of total pops you'll be making. (For about 24 pops, you'll only need about 1-2 squares of Vanilla Candiquik.) Snap off the long part of the miniature candy canes so the arc remains. Dip the arc's tip into the Vanilla CandiQuik and gently push it through the side of the marshmallow to create the mug's handle. Use the remaining Vanilla CandiQuik to gently attach holiday sprinkles to create the mug's design.
  3. Next, fill your cups! Melt the Chocolate CandiQuik according to package directions, using the amount you need for the total amount of pops you'll be making. (Again, for about 24 pops you'll use about ½ pkg of Chocolate CandiQuik). Pour the melted CandiQuik into a piping bag or a resealable plastic bag. Seal out the air and snip off a corner of the bag.
  4. Pipe the melted Chocolate CandiQuik onto the top of each pop to create the hot cocoa filling. Immediately top with miniature marshmallow bits for garnish. You could also sprinkle in sprinkles or crushed candy cane bits for a peppermint hot cocoa pop!
