Marshmallow Pops are fun, whimsical, and make great gifts or party treats. Vanilla-scented marshmallows are coated with chocolate, cut into cute shapes, skewered on lollipop sticks, and decorated however you like. You can always substitute a different flavored extract to customize the taste of these Marshmallow Pops. This recipe yields about 2 dozen 2- or 3-inch pops.

Begin by gathering your ingredients and equipment. For this recipe, you will need:
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 envelopes of unflavored gelatin (.75 oz)
  • 3/4 cup water, divided use
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 12 oz chocolate-flavored candy coating (or tempered real chocolate)
  • Stand mixer with whisk attachment
  • Candy thermometer
  • 2 or 3-inch cookie cutter of your choice
  • Lollipop sticks
Combine the cornstarch and powdered sugar in a small bowl. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle some of the cornstarch mixture all over the baking sheet and set aside for now.
