Ingredients
  • 12 regular sized marshmallows
  • 24 mini marshmallows
  • 1½ cups of gingerbread flavored melting chips
  • ¼ cup of white melting chips
  • 6 lollipop sticks
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Heat the gingerbread flavored candy chips in a large bowl by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating until melted. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Push 2 marshmallows onto the stick to form the head and body.
  3. Dip and roll the marshmallows in the melted gingerbread candy to coat well. You can also spoon it on, if that's easier. Then allow to set for several minutes.
  4. Dip 4 mini marshmallows in the melted candy and place as hands and feet (be careful as these may want to slip down the pop). You may need to hold it for a few seconds. Then allow to set.
  5. Reheat the melting chips for 30 seconds and stir.
  6. In a shallow bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar together.
  7. Take pop and spread a thin additional coat of melted candy on the front.
  8. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture, or roll the pop in it. Allow to dry.
  9. Heat white candy chips in a bowl by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating until melted.
  10. Transfer white chocolate to small plastic bag and clip a very tiny piece of corner to use for piping.
  11. Pipe eyes, mouths, buttons and cuffs on each. Then allow to set.
