How to Make Lego Marshmallow Pop Party Favors
I made these Lego Marshmallow Pops a few weeks ago for the twins’ fifth birthday party. They are so much easier to make than you might think. Of course it involves melting candy wafers- one of my favorite things to do!
Ready? Here we go….
- 1 bag of big marshmallows
- yellow candy wafers
- double boiler
- serrated knife (cuts the marshmallow with ease!)
- sucker sticks (craft store)
- icing bag and small writing tip (for making the face)
- black gel icing dye
- Royal Icing (I bought the boxed stuff that you just add water to- so easy!)
- treat bags and black ribbon (if you want to wrap them up)
Use a serrated knife to cut the top of the marshmallow off as shown below.
Use a coupler from an icing bag, or something of the same shape and size, to cut a hole in the marshmallow top that you just cut off.
Now you are left with three pieces like this:
Take the small round marshmallow piece and press it to the top of the large marshmallow piece. If you need to use a dot of water to make it stick you can do so.
Insert a sucker stick in the bottom end of the marshmallow ensembles as the picture below shows.
Next, dip the marshmallow-ed stick into your melted yellow candy wafers. (When I dip you dip we dip. Remember that song? Or am I the only one?)
Resemble a Lego head yet? So cute, hua?
Now, let it cool 100%. Use a floral foamy block to stick it in while it cools.
Once the Lego heads are cool, mix up some Royal Icing. I buy the boxed/bagged kind from the craft store or cake supply place. You just add water- so simple!
Once you’ve mixed the icing, add some black gel dye to it.
Place it in a piping bag with a small writing tip on it. I used a #2 tip.
Pipe little eyes and lips onto the Lego heads. Use Lego faces you have as a template. I just stuck with smiley faces and dot eyes.
Now you can use cellophane treat bags and some black curly ribbon to finish up.
Pop them in the goody bags and you have a hit! A crowd pleaser for sure! 🙂

Thank you for this tutorial. I appreciate it. I have not yet made cake pops, but marshmallow pops sound easier! 🙂

Hi , i love these and would love to make them for my sons up-coming birthday , but im from the uk and was wondering , what exactly is the candy wafer covering the equivalent to in the uk here , Thanks xx
Louise- this is what you’re looking for in a candy wafer. I bet you could order them online and have them shipped to you. If not from this site, try amazon or ebay- just search candy melts or wilton candy wafers, etc. There are many different brands on the market if Wilton is not available.
Hope that helps. Have fun!
Can anybody give me an estimate on total time it takes to complete 25 of these? And approximate cooling time? Thanks.
Amy- it has been over a year since I made these, but to make 25 I would carve out an entire afternoon.
I popped mine in the freezer to speed up the cooling time.
Hope that helps.
Love this idea! So creative but still simple to do. Thanks so much 🙂
