Chocolate Marshmallow Egg Easter Baskets {A Tutorial}

on March 20, 2012 by Jami Balmet 3 comments

Easter is quickly approaching so that means my Easter baskets, marshmallow eggs, and fun treats are ready to be handed out!

I love being able to make a fun Easter treat and attach a beautiful scripture about Christ’s death and the joy of his Resurrection. One fun Easter gift is chocolate dipped marshmallow egg baskets.

This is a fun gift to make for kids of all ages and can be quick and easy to throw together. I am making 6 of these for my sparkies (I’m a leader in Awana).

What you’ll need:

  • Egg Shaped Marshmallows (or regular marshmallows)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Chocolate Candy Melts
  • Sprinkles
  • Easter Buckets/Basket (I found mine at the dollar store)
  • Floral Foam (or similar)
  • Plastic Wrap or parchment Paper
  • Oreos
  • Edible Grass (Optional)

1) Cut the floral foam to fit inside your bucket/basket

2) Cover the foam with Plastic wrap or parchment paper
I was going to use plastic wrap until I realized I was out 😉 so I was resourceful and used parchment paper instead and it worked great.

3) Crush Oreo’s to make the “Dirt”
When I started crushing the oreos I realized this was messy business and that they were very sticky! So I stuck them in a bag first and then crushed them.

4) Assemble the pops
Now put your marshmallows on sticks, dip them in melted chocolate and sprinkle away.
5) Insert your pops and add grass
Now insert your dried marshmallow pops through the oreo’s into the foam and add some edible grass if you want.

Now you are all ready to attach scripture or a personal note and your marshmallow egg baskets are ready for delivery. Enjoy!

  1. I was just looking for something to make with my toddler to give as gifts (we try to give gifts on holidays where most people receive gifts to build a heart for giving) and this is perfect. He loves adding sprinkles to everything! Seems like the perfect gift for the local ronald mcdonald house – thanks!

    • What a great way to teach your children about giving rather than expecting to always get! Love it!!

      Well duh, sprinkles are the best! 😉 Share with us if you and your toddler make these ! 🙂
