Truffula Tree Marshmallow Pops


Sometimes I have a whim to create something fun the kids will enjoy. And sometimes it turns into something sort of cute. I thought it would be fun to dip some marshmallows in white chocolate and them dredge them in sprinkles. After putting them on the straws, dipping in the chocolate and then then sugar, I immediately thought of The Lorax and the Truffle Trees.

Netflix provided me with a streaming device and service in order to facilitate this post. All opinions expressed in this post are my own. #StreamTeam 

We had recently watched the Lorax by Dr. Seuss in movie form on Netflix (sadly, it’s since been pulled). The girls really connected with it. They love pretty much anything they’ve seen from Dr. Seuss including The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That which we regularly stream! They enjoy the fun facts and silly nature of the show for sure.

Back to the Truffula Trees. I don’t have a double boiler or a fondue set, but putting a smaller pot into a bigger pot with water did the trick. I did have to be careful not to let the water slosh into the smaller pan. Gradually, I heated the water and melted the white chocolate chips (you can color the chocolate or use candy melts). Once smooth, I removed it from the heat, I dipped the paper straw into the white chocolate and then pushed the marshmallow on it while twisting. Then, they went into the freezer for a bit to make sure the marshmallow was stuck on there good.

Then I dipped the marshmallow into the melted chocolate and smoothed with a spatula. Then into a bowl with colored sugar crystals (sprinkles would work, too). You will need a lot more sugar crystals than you think! Then back into the freezer to harden and cool for just a minute or two. It also helps to have some florist foam to set them in while they cool.

Then, enjoy! They are the perfect treat to enjoy with a Dr. Seuss movie or show!

    These are so cute! My kids love both movies (the original and the new one) so they will love these.

    1. I didn’t even realize that there were two of them! Off to find the original one. I’m guessing it’s more true animation instead of CGI?

      1. It’s barely even animated, lol. It was made in the 70s!

    What a super idea. I love putting them on straws, making them easier to dip in the chocolate. This would be a great addition to any dessert table, especially since you can change to color of the sugar for any occasion.
