Virtual Surprise Book Release Party for Sugarlicious! {Marshmallow Cake Pops}

Today is a special day for our friend Meaghan who blogs at The Decorated Cookie. She has been working hard and today her book Sugarlicious is released! When I think of Meaghan I think of marshmallows. She does amazing, artistic things with all kinds of sugar but she will forever be my go-to marshmallow girl. So when I was invited to celebrate with her today and throw her a surprise book release party I knew I wanted to do something with marshmallows. Deciding just what to do proved to be difficult.

First I bought these. Insanely cute but not for today.

Then I made my husband find these for me. Nope. Not this time.

Should I just put them on a stick?

Yes. A stick. That’s what Meaghan would do. Maybe something classic? S’mores.

SURPRISE!?!

Surprise Inside Marshmallow Cake Pops - Cake pops that look like marshmallows

Were you surprised? I hope so! Yes, after purchasing every marshmallow product in the tri-state area, I finally decided on Marshmallow Cake Pops. And of course they had to be pink for Meaghan! Aren’t they sugarlicious?!

Instead of traditional frosting I used 2 heaping Tablespoons of MARSHMALLOW FLUFF to bring these babies to cake pop consistency. Y-U-M. Form into marshmallow shapes and dip into chocolate. Sticks or no sticks these are still a fun surprise.

Marshmallow Cake Pops Recipe

PrintPrint

Yield: 2 dozen Cake Pops

Surprise! These marshmallows are actually cake pops!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cake, baked and cooled
  • 2 Heaping Tablespoons Marshmallow Fluff (or more or less to consistency)
  • 2 Cups white chocolate
  • 1 Tablespoon shortening
  • Sprinkles, optional

Directions:

  1. Prepare and bake your cake according to package instructions and let cool completely (overnight, uncovered is best). I made mine in a 9x13 pan and used about half of the pan to make the cake pops.
  2. Crumble half of the cake and mix in 2 heaping Tablespoons of MARSHMALLOW FLUFF to bring to cake pop consistency (holds shape but is not sticky).
  3. Melt chocolate and add shortening to thin out.
  4. Form into marshmallow shapes and dip into chocolate. Sticks or no sticks these are still a fun surprise.

Notes:

  • I used a basic white cake mix and colored it pink. If I hadn't spent so much money on every single form of marshmallow there is I would have bought a strawberry cake mix but I already had a white cake on hand.
  • You can use more or less cake and more or less marshmallow fluff to meet your needs.

 

Stop by The Decorated Cookie today and tell Meaghan congratulations. She worked really hard on this book and I know you will love every page. I’ll be ordering mine today for sure!
