Earlier this week I shared classroom valentines ideas with unique valentines from Cardstore. I recently ordered Outer Space valentines and created an alien pop treat for my daughter to hand out with the cards at her preschool classroom party. The treats were fun to make and I loved not having to spend hours crafting our own valentines.
- large marshmallows (I used Kraft vanilla & chocolate flavored swirled marshmallows)
- white chocolate melting chips
- green food coloring
- black gel frosting
- rainbow and heart sprinkles
- candy eyes (not pictured)
- sucker sticks
Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until chocolate is creamy consistency. Add food color to achieve desired shade of green and stir. Place marshmallow on sucker stick and dip into warm chocolate (hot chocolate will melt the marshmallows). Hold marshmallow over chocolate and let excess drip back into bowl.
Place alien pops head down on a paper towel covered in sprinkles. While pops are drying decorate with eyes and heart sprinkles. Add small dots of black gel for mouths.
Turn the pops upright when chocolate is completely dry.
My daughter can’t wait to put the alien pops in treat bags and hand them out with her Outer Space valentines at her preschool classroom party next week.
