Finding Dory Marshmallow Ring Pops | Recycle your ring pops into marshmallow pops! I took some ring pops (without the pops) to make these Finding Dory Ring Pops. If you don’t have any ring pops you can purchase bags of them at Dollar Tree. I think they come 4 to a bag. Just take off the wrapper and place the ring pops in hot water. The hot water will dissolve the candy. Great as a party favor too! If you don’t want to use ring pops you can also use lollipop sticks. Watch my video below to see how.
I made these for my Grandson’s 2nd birthday and the kids loved them! The inspiration behind making these were the Finding Dory sprinkles I found at Michael’s.
First dip the tip of the ring into melted candy (I used blue).
Insert a large marshmallow; press down so that the candy and the bottom of the marshmallow touch. Hold until the candy is firm.
Dip the whole marshmallow in melted candy and add the sprinkles ( I used tweezers).
TIP: If it’s humid where you are and you’re having a problem with the candy hardening, place a small fan on the counter. Hold the marshmallow up to the fan for a few seconds until the sprinkles adhere to the marshmallow.
Once my marshmallows were coated and had sprinkles I set them in a baking pan filled with rice but you can choose whatever works for you. I found this was the easiest way to keep the marshmallows sitting straight up. Oh….and you don’t have to use colored rice. That’s just what I had.
For the sand I added one crushed oreo cookie to some graham cracker crumbs. This step is not necessary it just adds a more realistic look to the sand. Using a clean paint brush, brush on some water to the bottom portion of the marshmallow pop; now sprinkle on some graham cracker crumbs (sand).
You can package these up as party favors or set them on your party table! I chose to put them on my party table and since my theme was under water I used some artificial grass (sea grass) I found at the 99cent store.
