Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat Marshmallow Pops

Dr. Seuss is having a birthday on March 2nd so we thought it would be fun to make some Dr. Seuss Hat Pops! We have seen hat pops before made with sprinkles, frosting, color, etc… However, we wanted to make really easy no mess pops by using fruit roll ups. This is seriously the easiest pops you will ever make…so perfect for a preschool or kindergarten party! We made these Patriotic Pops for 4th of July last year the same way and we loved how easy they were to do and how they turned out!

All you need is 3 large marshmallows (we like Jet-Puffed), 1 s’more (flat square) marshmallow, 1 red fruit roll up (walmart brand is good because it’s sparkly), white decorating sugar (optinal), and a lollipop stick. Cut the square marshmallow into a circle with kitchen scissors. Dip that into the white sugar to make it sparkly and it covers up the ruff edges. Cut one large marshmallow in half. Put the stick in the square marshmallow first. Put on the marshmallow half. Put on the 2 regular marshmallows and then put on the other marshmallow half on top. It will look like this…

Just take your cherry fruit roll up strips and wrap them around the bottom, middle, and top. It will stick together in the back. Cut off 2 small pieces for the very top and then wrap around. It will look like this…

You can secure with frosting in between the marshmallows, but we didn’t and they stayed put! Here is a close up…

Here is my 8 year old with his Dr. Seuss Pop! I found this hat in my house and have no idea where it came from, but it looks pretty cute!

We hope some of you can use this fun idea for your Dr. Seuss class party or just to make with the kids for fun!
