I celebrate life everyday, but when there is a party to behold not only will I be there with bells on, I intend to have a BALL! This past weekend one of my cousin’s turned 25, and held a theme party (hence the pink Marie Antoinette wig). I wanted to make something sweet, simple and fun since she was having a candy bar along with a tribe of other sweets that included cupcakes and cookie sandwiches. Donut Poppity Pops… You are the winner! The perfect hybrid between a lollipop and something cakey sweet!

Ingredients for Donut Pops:
24 – glazed donut holes (I used Winchell’s)
24- small marshmallows (I use Kraft)
24 – lollipop sticks
1 – 11.5 ounce bag of milk chocolate chips or white chocolate chips or both (I use Nestle)
1 – cup dyed coconut…. any color you like
Take a small marshmallow and push it an inch down lollipop stick then place/push donut hole on top. Repeat until all donut holes are prepared. Set to the side.
In a double boiler, or in a pot with boiling water and a metal bowl sitting on top, add chocolate chips and wait until they get shiny, then mix with a rubber spatula. Mix constantly until chocolate is melted smooth.
Then take a donut pop and dip it into the melted chocolate. Then hold chocolate covered donut pop over a plate and decorate with candy sprinkles or coconut or whatever else your heart desires.
Line a flat surface with wax paper and place decorated donut pop down for chocolate to dry/harden. Continue making the next one and so on. Let dry for 3 hours depending on weather. If it’s super hot in your kitchen place in refrigerator.
That’s it…your done! Take them to a party or enjoy your Donut Poppity Pops at home!
LET THEM EAT DONUT POPS!
