*Find the lollipop sticks, candy melts, candy eyes and Styrofoam block at the craft store. You may also find a black edible writer (or, food coloring pen) at the craft store. Though I prefer the Americolor Gourmet Writer. For tips on buying edible writers, click HERE.

 

what to do:

Skewer marshmallows with the lollipop sticks. In a jar or deep microwave-safe bowl, place about 1 cup of candy melts. (TIP: To make the melts easier to dip, you can also add a teaspoon of vegetable shortening.)

 

Microwave for 90 seconds at 70 percent power. Stir and continue to microwave at 15 second intervals until fully melted. Dip a marshmallow in the candy melts, but leave the space shown at the front and bottom of the marshmallow un-dipped. Gently tap the stick on the jar to shake off excess melts.

 

Prop the marshmallow in the Styrofoam block. Attach two candy eyes at either side of the marshmallow pops. Repeat with the rest of your marshmallows and let the pops dry well, at least 30 minutes.

 

Use the edible writer to draw teeth on the marshmallow and gill slits on the candy melts. Note edible writers often don’t write well on candy melts. It’s best to make quick, short lines using the tip of the marker.

 

For the fin, fold a piece of blue paper. Sketch a fin shape along the fold. Cut out and glue the fin around the stick.
