Easter chick pops recipe

Move over chocolate eggs! These delightful little Easter chick marshmallow pops will be a hit with the kids, and they’re simple and budget-friendly to make.

Serving Size:

Makes 20

Category:

Ingredients:

  • 150g white chocolate melts
  • 100g white marshmallows
  • 10 yellow M&M’s
  • 1-2 red licorice twists
  • black icing pen

You will also need:

  • 20 pop sticks or skewers

Method:

Step 1. Melt white chocolate in a bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water. Alternatively, melt in short bursts in the microwave.

Step 2. Push marshmallows onto the pop sticks. One by one, dip into the melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off.

Step 3. Cut M&M’s in half with a sharp knife. Cut 4mm slices of licorice and then cut those across into half moons. Working quickly before the chocolate has completely set, press a half M&M into the front of the marshmallow and a licorice piece onto the top. Refrigerate to set completely.

Step 4. Once set, using icing pen, squeeze a small amount onto each marshmallow to form the eyes.
