Prepare a work surface by placing lollipop sticks,
Large Marshmallows (1 pckg)
Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (to taste)
Sprinkles (to taste)
Assorted Nuts (to taste)
in separate bowls. Arrange 3 cups to place dipped marshmallows for drying, and bags and ribbons for wrapping once dry.
Melting Wafers (1 pckg)
in a double boiler and heat slowly and stir until melted and smooth.
Form an assembly line with melted chocolate, marshmallows, sticks and sprinkles within grasp.
Place a popsicle stick into the middle of a marshmallow and dip halfway into the melted chocolate. Use a knife to help remove excess chocolate.
Use one hand to hold the marshmallow, and the other hand to sprinkle the coconut or sprinkles onto the melted chocolate covered marshmallow.
Set marshmallow "stick side" down into a mug or glass, and allow to dry completely.
Once dry, wrap in plastic bags and tie a pretty bow around the plastic to seal.
Display or carry in a cute Valentine's bucket. We had some Florist Foam, that we put into a bucket and covered with confetti type filler. Then each pop could be stuck into the foam and made to look like a cute bouquet; you could also use this as a way to dry your pops.
