Valentine Pops

An edible Valentine

By Diane Kehm January 27, 2021

Valentines are a long-time tradition, but if you're looking for a way to sweeten them up a bit - try these Valentine Pops! They would be great with Valentines to classmates, or a small bouquet of them will tell a teacher, friend, or coach just how special you think they are. Kids can help with nearly all the steps (a teen or adult should handle heating the chocolate).

You will need:

  • Lollipop sticks (6 inch pictured here)
  • Almond Bark in your desired flavor or color
  • Sprinkles or jimmies
  • Large marshmallows in your preferred flavor or color OR you can also use valentine Peeps
  • Cardboard box (recycled cereal box works great) with small poked holes or styrofoam to 'dry' the pops upright
  • Plastic wrap
  • Decorative ribbon


1. Melt the Almond Bark according to package directions

2. Insert stick into marshmallow

3. Dip marshmallow into chocolate, rotating it and gently scraping off any excess chocolate as you remove it from the bowl

4. Place stick upright in pre-poked holes in cardboard box or styrofoam

5. Add sprinkles while chocolate is still wet

6. Repeat until you have the quantity you want

7. Once the chocolate sets and hardens, place in treat bag or as shown here, cover with a small amount of plastic wrap, fastening with ribbon.

(Option: you can use a hole punch to make a hole in your Valentine and slide it onto stick before fastening with ribbon.)
