Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops?

by Maria Kauflin
(Dayton, Ohio)

Hi! I'd like to make these chocolate dipped marshmallow pops and sell them at my next craft fair along with my buckeyes and dipped pretzel rods.

How long do you think these will stay fresh after dipping and wrapping? Should they be refrigerated or not?

I'm just doing them simply... marshmallow on stick dipped in chocolate and rolled in holiday jimmies, etc.

By the way, my first craft fair went well! Your tips really helped me so that I didn't lose too many buckeyes and could keep them frozen when I was there so when I got home, I just put them back in the freezer. Thank you so much.


Hi Maria,

Congrats on the success of your first craft fair! I'm so happy for you. :)

I think that chocolate dipped marshmallows will keep well for a few weeks at the least.

Marshmallows alone stay fresh for that long, and the chocolate coating should even increase the life span of freshness.

At your next craft fair, get a photo of your display table and let us have a look at what you've done!

I'm so happy I came across this post for storage. My cake group is doing 800 covered treats for a huge Children's Foundation Christmas party and I wanted to get a head start on making my 100.

Don't refrigerate your chocolate covered marshmallows! NEW
by: Angie from

I would definitely avoid refrigerating your chocolate marshmallow pops if you can help it. The moisture in the fridge won't do them any favors.

If your house is cool enough to keep them from melting, just store them in an airtight container. They should keep fine that way for a couple of weeks.

Pricing Fundraising Candy NEW
by: Angie

I assume you are referring to chocolate covered marshmallow pops and chocolate covered pretzel rods. :)

Sometimes pricing depends on the target audience and region. If you were marketing toward teenagers, or lower income areas, you'd want to keep your prices low enough to entice the buyers.

In that case I'd charge about 50 cents each pretzel rod and marshmallow pop.

If you are targeting a more middle class area, I'd charge $1 each, and you could even go higher if you were targeting a high income clientele.

For instance, if you were taking your fundraiser to a place of business (like a doctor's office, lawyers office, business center, etc., you can probably make more because they are likely to have more disposable cash and be willing to pay a bit extra for 'a good cause.' :)

Storing Marshmallow Pops NEW

I've moved your question (above) to this page so that you can read the answers and suggestions for making and storing your marshmallow pops and other goodies.

Yes, you most definitely can be making them in advance as long as they are wrapped and stored properly.

Hope they turn out wonderfully.

I'm making marshmallow pops, chocolate dipped oreos (in cooking mold), chocolate dipped pretzels and white chocolate lollipops.

Can these be made in advance, and what's the best way to store them?

Thank you.

Storing Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops
by: Angie

I would wrap the chocolate marshmallow pops in cellophane bags and store them at room temperature away from any strong smells.

You don't want them to absorb the smell of garlic, onions, scented candles, or anything similar.

You can get the cellophane bags here at Candyland Crafts if you can't find them locally.

Take some photos of your sister's 16th birthday party favors when you finish them and show them off to us here. We'd love to see them. You can add them using the form on the chocolate party favor page.

Have fun!

Hi! I use Merckens. I find that it melts well and stays more liquid longer than Wilton discs or the big blocks of chocolate.

Tip about dipped marshmallows
by: Barbara

Dip the end of the stick in chocolate before you insert it into the marshmallow. This helps keep the marshmallow on the stick.
