I’ve been excited at the thought of Easter being around the corner. It means warm weather is on the way! It also means it’s the perfect opportunity for sweet treats. That’s why I’m excited about this recipe for Cute Easter Chick Pops. Aren’t they adorable?
They’re fairly easy too. Simply assemble all of your ingredients.
Put the marshmallows on the sticks and then dip them into the melted chocolate and then the frosting.
Roll them in the colored coconut.
Put on the candies for the eyes and beak, touch up the coconut, and you’re done!
We love this recipe and it’s one that is sure to get a lot of smiles this Easter season. Have fun making them and enjoy!
- 6-8 Regular Marshmallows
- ½ C. Yellow Wilton Candy Chips
- ½ C. White frosting
- Yellow Food Coloring
- 3-4 Orange Lifesaver Gummies
- 1 C. flaked coconut (baking aisle)
- Large Ziploc bag
- Mini Brown M&M’s (located in the baking section)
- 6-8 Candy Sticks
- Heat candy chips by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating for 10 seconds until melted.
- Insert stick in each marshmallow. Dip and roll marshmallows into the melted chocolate covering the marshmallow completely. Use a spoon to cover the marshmallow if needed. Stand the marshmallow up in a small cup to let set and repeat with the other marshmallows.
- Once all the marshmallows are coated and drying, mix ½ C. of white frosting with 1-2 drops of yellow food coloring and mix well. Set aside. (you do not need a lot start with 1 drop and add more if needed).
- Next, add the ½ C. of coconut to the Ziploc bag and add 1-2 drops of yellow food coloring (again, you do not need lot – start with 1 drop to be safe). Close the bag and shake until the coconut is yellow. Pour into a bowl or a paper plate and set aside.
- Using a pair of kitchen scissors cut the orange Lifesavers in ½ and then into a small triangle for the chicks beak.
- Starting with 1 marshmallow at a time, use a small spatula and coat with frosting. Place (2) small brown M&M’s on it for the eyes and 1 orange triangle for the nose. Then, dip into the coconut and slowly ‘roll’ it to coat. You will have to put some coconut around his face with your fingers.
- Repeat the process with the other marshmallows!
What about you? What spring or Easter treats are you looking forward to enjoying?

I tried making cake pops – which look quite similar to these last night, and it was quite possibly the Hindenburg of kitchen disasters. These might go well… maybe.
