6. Insert skewer through the side of the white marshmallow and push down to your finger tips

To make a larger bouquet simply make more pops and use a bigger flower pot. The bigger the bouquet the bigger the surprise will be!

Note: If you’re making these ahead of time, to maintain freshness, wrap each pop in a cellophane bag and tie with a twist tie underneath the ribbon. Marshmallow pops can be enjoyed up to six months later. They also may be stored for keepsake in a cool, dry place forever without deteriorating. Enjoy!
