Hi everyone! My name is Diana from The Girl Creative and I’m so excited to be sharing this super easy 4th of July treat with you along with some free printables to help make it even more festive!

I LOVE sweet treats and I love to bake but I don’t love turning my oven on during the hot summer months. Good thing there are plenty of things you can pick up at the store that you can get a little creative with. My kids love when I put together yummy treats for them, especially for holidays,  so I decided to mix 2 things that I know they all love: Marshmallow Treats and Chocolate!

Here’s what you need to pull off these 4th of July Marshmallow Treat Pops!

Clear Treat Bags

Bakers Twine

I started by sticking the marshmallow treats on the straws. I inserted it about 3/4 of the way up to make sure they didn’t fall off the straw. I then melted my white chocolate candy melts in the microwave according to package instructions and dipped just the front of the pops into the chocolate. I tilted my bowl on it’s side a bit so that I could easily cover just the front. I smoothed out the chocolate just a bit with a butter knife before placing on a parchment covered baking sheet and sprinkling with sprinkles.

Once I was done I popped them into the fridge for about 10 minutes or so to let the chocolate set. I finished it off by covering each pop with clear treat bags that you can pick up in any craft store. I secured the bag with bakers twine and added a fun 4th of July label just because everything looks cuter with a printable!

If you are hosting a 4th of July party, these make great favors for your guests. I’m not sure they will want to wait that long to eat them so you just  might want to put them into a cute bucket and set out on display for your friends to help themselves.

4th of July Tags

Here are some free printable 4th of July Tags for you to download. To use as labels, print out onto full sheet labels and use a 2 inch circle punch or a 2.25″ scallop punch to punch out. To use as tags, print out onto white card stock and use the same size paper punch of your choice.
