Marshmallow Beach Balls: Pool Party Treats

| | |

I’ve had this idea for marshmallow beach balls in my head all summer and I’ve been meaning to post it,  and I feel like summer just ran away from me! But, I figure now summer is in full swing and these pool party treats are perfect so I’m posting this now!

These would be so cute to do for a swimming pool party or slip n’ slide party. The absolute best thing about them is that the kool-aid flavors the chocolate! Sure, you could just purchase different color candy melts, but the flavor the kool-aid gives is awesome and makes them taste as good as they look!

What you’ll need to make these pool party treats:

Marshmallow Beach Balls

Step 1: Place the marshmallows on the skewers

Step 2: Melt a few candy melts in the microwave in 20 second intervals. Stir in between each 20 seconds in the microwave and stop once they are just melted. I used about 6-7 candy melts for each color to do 3 marshmallows and had leftover chocolate.

Step 3: Once the chocolate is melted, sprinkle in a small amount of the kool-aid powder. Add a few drops of water and stir to activate the color. You will add drops of water until the chocolate is a nice smooth consistency.

Step 4: Using the offset spatula spread a small amount of chocolate on a section of the marshmallow, to resemble the section of a beach ball. It doesn’t have to look perfect because the sprinkles will cover any imperfections. If you need to, you can use your fingernail or a clean spatula/knife to scrap or push the chocolate into the shape you would like it. 

Step 5: Shake sprinkles to cover the chocolate and tap them into the chocolate with your finger. Stand the marshmallow on its skewer into a tall glass while you do the other marshmallows in that color.

Marshmallow Beach Balls


  • – Do all of the marshmallows in one color before moving onto another color.
  • – Use yellow and blue to make green if you can’t find the green kool-aid (I searched 3 stores).
  • – Add water a very small amount at a time so your chocolate doesn’t get too runny.
  • – Slip the bamboo skewers into a cute striped paper straw before displaying them in a beach bucket for the pool party!
