Simple Treats {Skittles Marshmallow Pops}

Skittles Marshmallow Pops

I did something ahead of time for a holiday. Can you believe it? I’m feeling rather on the ball right now.

I signed up to bring treats to Leah’s Valentine’s Day party at her preschool. I don’t usually do that… I typically leave treat bringing up to the more creative, “pinteresting” moms, but I figured preschool kids are pretty easy to impress. Surely, even I, could make something easy that they would love.


When I saw this recipe for Skittles Marshmallow Pops on the Very Culinary blog last week, I knew I found just the treat to bring. Cute, simple, colorful, tasty and fun… everything I wanted in a preschool Valentine’s Day treat all wrapped up in one on a stick recipe.

Aren’t they fantastic?

I’m so pleased with how they turned out I may even get crafty and put them in bags with their own little Valentine’s Day printables. Or not. Really… let’s not get carried away now.

      I totally thought of you 1) last night when I was making Ella’s Valentine’s Day box and 2) when I was making these today. I’m trying to channel you 😉

    So stinkin fun!!!! I must try these with my kiddos! And I had to LOL at your comment about the bags and printables… I am so there with you girl!

    Gotta admit this is nothing I had envisioned when I heard marshmallow and Skittles.. They remind me of pixie stick dust, which then makes me wonder if I could pulverize freeze dried fruit. Although you can get Skittles in a lot of flavors, so maybe I’ll just stick with that. I bet all the kids were happy (and high on sugar!)

      Amy linked to someone who used jell-o powder. It makes me want to think outside the box and try other things, and freeze dried fruit would totally work, I’d think! Good idea!

    My motto is that there can never be too many marshmallows in life. I’ve never heard of pulverizing Skittles before. Cool! This really makes me want to try this with homemade marshmallows, yum!! Thank you for the link to my marshmallow pops, much appreciated!
