Marshmallow pops

I don't know about you, but we LOVE dessert in our  house. Anything from donuts and chocolate cake, to fruit brioche or baklava. If it is sweet, we will eat it. Seeing as this is the case we have to limit the amount we eat, self control is minimal! 

For an after dinner treat and a little incentive to finish dinner, 9 times out of ten we will eat yogurt. That could be natural, creamy vanilla yogurt or the standard pre-flavored yoplait variety- these do get a little boring at times so we try to make it a little more interesting with Alex's favorite -green jelly, or one of Max's favorites- marshmallow pops. Marshmallow pops are one of my faves also. You really can't go wrong with marshmallow dipped in dark chocolate and then sprinkled with shredded coconut. I usually make a batch and am pleased with myself thinking that should do us for the week (it only takes about 5 minutes to make 10), however they taste so yummy especially the strawberry flavored marshmallows- Nic and I eat them as well, a weeks worth dwindles to 3 days worth- it is a good thing it is summer and we always have fresh fruit in the house otherwise it is back to plain old yogurt and Max would never finish his peas!
