Marshmallow Ginger Kids

For my boys, it just doesn’t get any better than this!  Marshmallows coated in sugar, cinnamon, and ground ginger turn into these adorable Marshmallow Ginger Kids in just a few short minutes.  Bryce helped me pull these together and it was so much fun I can tell we’ll be making another batch soon.  Reece came home and ooohed and aaahhed over them so much and then asked “When can I eat one?”  I guess they’re not too cute to eat!

Here is Bryce waiting so patiently for me to put the camera down and get started…

So first slide two large marshmallows onto a lollipop stick {I got mine at World Market}.

Ginger Kids Step 1

Melt the white chocolate chips according to the package directions.  Transfer the chocolate to a ziplock bag and cut off one corner.  Use the chocolate to adhere the small marshmallows to the large ones making up the arms and legs.  They already look cute!  Let the chocolate set before continuing on.

Marshmallow Ginger Kids Step 2

Mix the sugar, cinnamon, and ginger in a small bow and set aside.  Fill a bowl or large cup with water {I used a mason jar}.  It needs to be big enough to dip the entire pop in.   So first dip the pop in the water and then roll it in the cinnamon-sugar-ginger mixture.  I ended up needing to pour some over the pop to get it completely coated.

Here they are ready to decorate!

Marshmallow Ginger Kids Step 4

I used a variety of decorations on our Marshmallow Ginger Kids {Wilton’s Sparkle Gel, Wilton’s Cookie Icing, Wilton’s Pearlized Sprinkles and more – just what I had on hand}. I think this group looks more like a Marshmallow Ginger Family – hehe!

Recipe from Family Fun Magazine. The original recipe said the ingredients would make four but I made six and had A LOT left over. Plan for 8 with this recipe.
