What You Will Need:

  • Treat ingredients:
    Candy melts (green and white)
    Peanut butter

Instructions For Homemade Party Favors:
Peanut Butter Marshmallow Treats

Step 1:

Make the peanut butter mixture:

  • 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

Mix all ingredients together

Step 2:

Insert a wooden skewer into each marshmallow. Then coat each marshmallow with the peanut butter mixture. It will be a little messy, but it is probably easier to just use your hands to evenly coat each marshmallow in the mixture. Once the marshmallow is evenly covered, stick the skewer into your floral foam to hold it upright. See photo A.

After they are all done, refrigerate them until the peanut butter coating has become firm.

Step 3:

Melt the green candy melts in a double boiler or microwave according to the package instructions.

Step 4:

Dip or roll the treats into the melted candy. You may want to pour the melted candy into a drinking glass to make it deeper and easier to dip the treats into the candy. See photo B. Do this as quickly as you can because the peanut butter may start to get soft in the hot candy.

Step 5:

After you have dipped each treat, stick them in the floral foam to hold them upright while they cool and harden. It is best to refrigerate them so the candy hardens faster.

Step 6:

Once the green candy coating has hardened, melt the white candy melts. Then take each treat and dip the tip of it into the white candy. Do this as quickly as you can, or the green candy will start to melt into the white candy. See photo C. Immediately after dipping it in white, cover the top in your shamrock sprinkles so they stick in the hot candy. Then place the treat back into the floral foam and refrigerate until hardened.

Your peanut butter marshmallow treats are now done! Before serving them, you could tie green curling ribbon around the base of each treat to make them more festive!

Hi Annie, I'm very sorry that they didn't work for you! They are a bit tricky, I will admit. With the peanut butter it's easiest to just spread it on, with your fingers even. Since you had trouble with it sliding off, I'd be sure to refridgerate them for a little longer. Then, when dipping it in the melted candy, try tilting the glass/container of candy and swirling it in at an angle so the marshmallow is less likely to pull off. Also you want to do this pretty quickly, because if the peanut butter heats up, it can start to pull off. I don't know if this was much help, and I do apologize that it didn't work for you!! It isn't the easiest thing to do!

Annie Says:
