Little "Fist" Fish Marshmallow Pops

Little "Fist" Marshmallow Pops!
My dear friend Annette and her boyfriend Tom had recently lost their goldfish Fist. And while searching the amazing site that is Pinterest, I came across this DIY Goldfish Marshmallow Pops from See Vanessa Craft. So because of their loss, I made these pops and took them to our Tuesday night rehearsal for all of us guard-girls (and coaches) to enjoy and remember the little fish.
Recipe adapted from See Vanessa Craft:
1 bag light blue chocolate melts (I use Wilton's Candy Melts)
1 – 10.5 ounce bag large marshmallows
1 box graham cracker crumbs (I just used the cheap grocery-store brand and only used like 4 crackers)
1 – 6.6 ounce bag cheddar goldfish (I had a huge Costco size box so I had plenty)
Large white pearl nonpareils
Plenty lollipop sticks (about 20 or more)

1: Melt blue chocolate melts according to package. I use Wilton's Chocolate Pro Electric Chocolate Melter, it makes keeping the melts warm and not over done. A lot of bakers recommend placing chocolate in a microwavable bowl and melting in 30 second increments, mixing in between. Do not over-melt or the chocolate will be difficult to work with.

2: Place lollipop sticks in marshmallows. Dip marshmallows into the chocolate. Tap excess chocolate off the marshmallow.

3: Before the chocolate dries, dip the bottom in graham cracker crumbs. Add a goldfish and 2-3 white pearl nonpareils.

4: Allow to dry and then enjoy! If you are making this a day in advance, make sure to place your pops in an air tight container or cover with saran wrap so they don’t go stale.

RIP Fist-Fist fish
