It amazes me how Star Wars is still going strong after all these years.  And my 5 year old is a huge fan of both the original stuff and especially the new Clone Wars series.  So for a treat for him and his friends, I made these chocolate/marshmallow Clonetrooper Pops (and a few retro old school Stormtroopers, too.)

The inspiration for this was a smaller and simpler version of the Clone Trooper cupcakes I created for my son's birthday party.  These are not difficult to make, but could definitely be a little time consuming.  But wouldn't these be awesome party treats for a SW themed birthday party?

Hope you enjoy them!  And if you make them, I'd love to see pics!


Step 1: Ingredients & Materials

These instructions are for 1 dozen pops, although you could probably make at least 20, because I had extra left over.  And this is easy enough to double or quadruple.

You'll need:

12 Rolo candies (plus a few extras for mishaps)

Marshmallow fondant:
  • 4 oz (by weight) marshmallows (1/4 of a 16oz bag)
  • 8 oz (by weight) powdered (icing) sugar (1/2 of a 1 lb box)
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • Vegetable shortening (like Crisco)
Black food coloring (I used Wilton Candy Colors)

Blue, green, or yellow food coloring if you're doing Clone Troopers

skewers or lollypop sticks about 6 inches long

Scrap styrofoam block or something else you can stick the skewers into to hold them upright.

Rolling pin (or something similar)

2 in circle cookie cutter or something else circular about 2- 2 1/4" in diameter.

Everyone can agree on the benefits <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>UGG Ultra Tall</strong></a> of music lessons for kids. In particular, piano lessons <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Ultra Tall Boots</strong></a> have the most advantages. But, for the young student, music lessons can be a long, difficult undertaking. Parents thus need to do whatever they can to <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Ultra Tall uggs</strong></a> encourage the student and make the experience pleasant. There are a <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>ugg 5245</strong></a> variety of things you can do, but one good strategy to start with is to make the student feel important. Create a mental picture <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ultra-tall/" rel="nofollow"><strong>ugg 5245</strong></a> of their potential musicianship.
wow~seems great~~~ but....I can not find your stuff in China~~~~555~~~~
If you can't find the Rolo candies, just any similar shape candy will do. Do you have large gum drops there? those would be the perfect shape. You could also make your shape out of modeling chocolate.
hoho~~~thanks for your advise! I have already find the substitute stuff~~~
I happen to be a star wars fan myself, and i'm a little older than 5
