LEGO HEAD Marshmallow Pops

This year birthday of my son was kinda not so stressful, but it was exciting and bit easier. Maybe as my parents are here and were helping me around or for the reason that I choose to make easy recipes and which were fun as well. I was just googling one day and was kinda looking for some lego themed party goodies and this struck my eyes; as soon as I saw these cute Lego head pops, I fixed my mind to do it, whatever it takes. Firstly I had no idea what were candy melts, I thought it was something like the hard candy. But when I read about what ingredients were in the candy melts, I was much happier to go ahead. Actually it is white chocolate which comes in so many colors, I chose yellow for Lego head. Also I read about Almond Bark, but I decided to use candy melts itself, as almond bark would have almonds and I cannot use it in the party where some kids would be allergic. 
This was fun and exciting kids pops. You can get creative and make so many different toppings and coatings for this marshmallow pops.
Here is the post of the party snacks that I prepared....Anush's 6th LEGO Party Snacks.
* Buy already colored Candy Melts, as if you buy white candy melts and try to add food color it will harden the candy melts when you try to melt and use it.
* Buy Puffed Marshmallow, as it holds the shape better, else they will be soggy or out of shape

1. If using cardboard box, prepare it by piercing holes where you can stick the candy or ice cream sticks. If using Styrofoam block you don't have to worry about piercing holes.
2. In a microwave safe bowl, add the candy melts and first melt them for about 30 to 45 secs, stir and melt it again for 30 secs, keep stirring and reducing the time you keep in microwave, when the melts starts melting almost to a thick batter consistency, take it out of microwave and let it cool a bit.
3. Now to prepare the pops, do the below steps one by one.
4. Take a candy or ice cream stick, dip the tip into melted candy melt, then pierce into the bottom portion of one marshmallow and then pierce it into the Styrofoam/cardboard box.
5. Allow it to cool and harden so that the marshmallow sticks to the stick.
6. Now take each marshmallow with the stick and dip the other end into the candy melt, then roll into the candy melt on all sides, now smooth it out with the help of the spatula or butter knife.
7. Add a yellow m&m on top of the marshmallow.
8. Now stick it back on to the Styrofoam/cardboard box and allow it to harden.
9. Now with a tip #1 attached to the black decorating icing tube, draw smiley face as shown.
10. Allow it to harden, enjoy this delicious and fun kids party snacks.
