Everyone loves the Peanuts gang in some form or another. I personally don’t care for the shows or movies, but I like the cartoon strips. Since the newest movie release, Peanuts has been given new life with this current generation of children. Snoopy is showing up everywhere, even as a party theme! How cute would these Snoopy Marshmallow Pops be at a party!?

Snoopy Marshmallow Pops Instructions
Step 1: Before you begin building your Snoopy, you need to cut and separate the mini Oreos. It is okay if some have icing and others don’t. Set them aside for Step 13.
TIP: The easiest way I found to cut the Oreos was to hold the knife at a slight angle to cut them in half. If you hold the knife perpendicular to the cookie you have a greater chance of the bottom piece breaking.
Step 2: Cut one jumbo marshmallow in half long ways. (You will use one-half per Snoopy.)
Step 3: Slide the one-half onto the sucker stick about 1 inch from the top of the stick. You want the cut “sticky” side down. Stick placement on the marshmallow should be towards the back side. This is the “feet”.
Step 4: Melt white chocolate according to the directions on the package.
Step 5: Add a little white chocolate to the top of the “feet”.
Step 9: Cover entire Snoopy with white chocolate and let excess drip off.
Step 10: While it is still warm and sticky, wrap licorice string around the “neck” portion. I used my fingernail to cut off the extra once it was wrapped all the way around.
Step 14: Prop each pop up so it can dry without the chocolate touching anything.
Step 15: Once chocolate is dry add the “eyes” to each side of the “head” near the ears. If using melted chocolate, create the eyes using the handle tip of a paint brush.
