Just in time: Easter treats to make and enjoy!  These delicious, easy-to-make Marshmallow pops are  another great recipe from my friend Danielle at Hugs&CookiesXOXO.  She is the queen of sweet treats!

Simply thread marshmallows on a stick (or straws).  Sticks come in a variety of lengths and are easily found in the baking section of craft stores (Walmart also carries them).
