Frog Marshmallow Pops

Wednesday … February 29 … it’s leap year!  The first thing I thought of was … leap-frog 🙂

This is a first for me … I’ve never made anything for leap year.   It just seemed like a good reason to make frog marshmallow pops!

This is what you will need …

  • Jumbo marshmallows (any flavor will do)
  • Large marshmallows (any flavor)
  • Lollipop sticks (6″ – 8″)
  • Candy eyes
  • Green candy melts/ chocolate (1 pound for 10 – 12 frogs)
  • Dark chocolate/candy melts
  • Red candy melts/chocolate
  • Squeeze bottles or pastry bags

Before we start, I want to let you know that I am using chocolate & caramel marshmallows.  These have been in the cupboard for a long time and I need to use them up.  The flavors don’t matter … but the size does matter …

I cut the jumbo marshmallows in half …

Dip the tip of the stick in melted green candy …

Insert the stick in the jumbo marshmallow (1/2) and  push it all the way thru …

Dip the tip of the stick again in the candy …

Now insert the stick in the large marshmallow and set aside to let the candy harden up …

Dip the whole marshmallow pop in the melted candy and tap off the excess.  Lay the pop on wax paper and pop in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to harden up …

Use a small knife to trim up any puddles or drips …

Put some melted green candy in a squeeze bottle or pastry bag and draw legs and toes …

Use the same green chocolate to attach eyeballs …

Use dark chocolate to give these little guys a mouth and nose …

Use red chocolate to draw a tongue … only if you want … the more I look at them, I don’t like the tongue …

So here are my silly little leap frogs …

I look forward to your comments …
