There is no hiding it, I love my marshmallow pops. I love how easy they are to make for kids birthday parties and I also love how just a simple tweak can make them look totally different.
Now, if I was good at baking, I might attempt to make some microphone cake pops, but I’m not. I don’t pretend to be and I’m not going to start practicing either.
Let’s face it, I’m a busy mom who has limited time when it comes to preparing the treats for my kids parties.
Can I hear you say a big “hell yeah!”.
Who has the time to be baking and decorating every item for the party. Certainly not me!
That’s where marshmallow pops are a saving grace.
My daughter recently had her 7th birthday party which was a rock star theme. These microphone marshmallow pops were the perfect party treat and they were totally easy to do.
Sounds good right?

7 Steps To Awesome Microphone Marshmallow Pops
Now that you know how easy they are to make, it’s about time I actually showed you how!
I’ve broken it down into 7 steps, but don’t worry because that sounds WAY worse than it really is.
Let’s get started.
Step 1: Melt the chocolate melts either in the microwave or over a pan of water.
Personally I prefer to melt chocolate over a pan as I have more control over it. If you melt chocolate too far it goes all clumpy and that doesn’t make good spreading over marshmallows!
Step 2: Dip the end of the cake pop stick into the melted chocolate and then place into the middle of the marshmallow.
You could skip this step, but the chocolate helps the marshmallow stick to the pop stick, so I think it’s worth the extra 10 seconds that it takes to do.
Step 3: Dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate and with a teaspoon, gently cover the marshmallow with chocolate.
Allow the excess chocolate to drip off.
Step 4: Once the marshmallow is completely covered with chocolate, allow it to stand on a covered baking tray. We want the chocolate to harden enough that it wont make a mess when dipping it into the sprinkles, but we don’t want it to harden too much so that the sprinkles won’t stick.
Tip: If you have someone helping then you can take one job each (one person cover the marshmallows with chocolate, then the other person cover with sprinkles.
If you are doing the job alone, then do roughly 4-5 at a time otherwise the chocolate will set too much and the sprinkles wont stick.
Step 5: Dip the end of the marshmallow into the silver sprinkles.
Very carefully then place some extra sprinkle balls around the side of the marshmallow so that it resembles the head of a microphone.
Step 6: Leave it to dry on a fresh covered backing tray.
Step 7: Display at your party.
Pretty simple right?
I quite often display my marshmallow pops as shown on the baking tray, but as I wanted the microphone head to be on display, I placed them in a marshmallow pop stand instead.
The stand was pretty simple to make and I literally used some floral foam and covered it with wrapping paper.
The sticks were held in place easily and the microphone head was fully on display. It worked perfectly.
