Super Easy, Super Cute Marshmallow Pops

Okay so just in case you really wanted a DIY here it is:
Last week Flip and I made these gorgeous marshmallow pops

To start with I gave some wooden kebab skewers a quick spray with cooking oil to help the marshmallows not to stick too much
Thread on a marshmallow and very quickly dip in water
Shake off excess water
Dip in jelly crystals (hey I never said they were healthy!) and pop in a jar or similar to allow them to dry
** You do need to shake off the excess water or it makes the jelly crystals wet and lumpy**

We used lemon and raspberry and they had a slightly sherbert/sour taste on the outside which complimented the marshmallow beautifully.
OR - thread the marshmallows and dip in melted chocolate and then in sprinkles (or not) which is one of my all time favourite combos chocolate and marshmallow -

It seems to be a peculiarly kiwi thing - pineapple lumps, pinky bars, perky nanas, marshmallow Easter eggs, mallowpuffs..... I missed them all in the UK.

I love these for a party or just to make an exciting-looking and easy treat.

I love that last picture 'I got all the marshy-pops nah-nah-nah-naaah-nah'. Seriously they were delicious - I must have the only child in the universe who doesn't like marshmallow?!
