My kid’s asked for a Lego Birthday Party theme this year for their double celebration at my parents house. Each summer we throw them a huge bash and invite all our extended family and friends in the America. It’s a great way to not only celebrated them both but to get a family reunion in too. Both my kid’s were due on the same day, while they didn’t make their due date either of them, one being late and one being early their birthdays still fall pretty close. They love having their celebrations with my family and all their second and third cousins.
It’s always my momma’s job to make the cake. Have a peak at my instagram feed to see her absolute masterpiece of a Lego Cake. She pulled all the stops out even making 90 some fondant dots to create edible legos on it. WOW! I know! She is incredible.
Why Lego Marshmallow Pops?
Free From Gluten And Dairy
I wanted to make something Lego themed for the party. My kids absolutely love marshmallows. Since B can’t eat cake or ice cream I wanted him to have a treat too. These pops are gluten free and dairy free, and if you buy vegetarian marshmallows it can be a great vegetarian party treat too.
Quick And Easy To Make
These are so easy and quick to make. I learned a few things on the way that I can share with you too down below. I let the kids make the Lego case to hold them so they felt involved too, but they could actually help with making the marshmallow pops themselves – they are that easy!
They Can Be Made Ahead
If you are having a big party lego head marshmallow pops can be made in advances and stored for up to a week. On the day of the party you can just put them out with no fuss. The candy coating protects the marshmallows from drying out.
Lego Marshmallow Pops
- One pack Long Cake Pop White Sticks
- One bag Large Marshmallows
- One bag Mini Marshmallows
- One bag Candy Melts Yellow
- One Black Edible Marker Pen
- all ingredient can be bought at Walmart in USA, or Hobbycraft in the UK
- Depending on how many you want to make: take out equal amounts of mini marshmallows, large marshmallows, sticks, and put the rest aside.
- Cut your mini marshmallows in half for the top
- Push the stick into the large marshmallows and allow it to go all the way through enough for the half mini marshmallow to fit on top too
- You can dip just the top of the stick in melted candy melts first and then push stick through large marshmallow and mini half marshmallow be sure to let harden so it doesn’t slide down stick when it’s stands up or while you are dipping it
- I didn’t do this as we made them and used right away for the party but if you make ahead of the party probably better to do this step so the marshmallows stay on the top of the stick when you dip them and stand them up
- Now that you have your large marshmallow on the top of the stick with half mini marshmallow on the tip you have your lego head and it’s ready to dip
- Melt candy melts in a small pan on the stove on medium stirring constantly
- (if you haven’t done already for the above alternative method)
- Dip your lego marshmallow heads slowly sideways and roll in yellow candy melts to coat
- Tap the stick on the edge of the pan to let extra chocolate dip off and stand up to dry
- I used a floral foam base that florist use for flowers to stick them in to dry
- Using the black edible marker pen draw Lego smiley faces (or more artist faces if you can)
- Have your kids built a lego rectangle base and using loose legos inside, place your finished Lego Marshmallow Pops to display for the table
It’s easy, fast, and delicious and the kid’s absolutely loved them too!
Easy For Kids To Make
Why not get the kids involved in the making of their own Lego pops? It would be a great rainy day activity and they will love making their creations as much as eating them. If you are artist you can look on pinterest for hundreds of Lego faces to draw. I stuck with the original smiley face as I am not artist in the slightly. Speaking of Pinterest I made you a pinnable photo below don’t forget to save this to your party treats or Lego boards please!
Lego Party Theme
Do your kid’s love Legos as much as mine? Lego is one of the easiest party themes ever. We had so much fun using the kid’s toy legos both big and small that they already had as decorations and using other primary colored party decorations to match and go with it. Don’t forget to check my instagram direct link above to see the awesome LEGO birthday cake my mother made she is truly talented.
Lego Marshmallow Pops Stand
I love that we could use the kid’s legos as the vase to our Lego Marshmallow Pops. Just make sure you have enough loose legos in there to hold your Marshmallow Pops up right. Or I used a floral foam block underneath to stick them in and laid the loose legos on top of it. It makes for a great centerpiece and more decorations for the party.
