Big Hero 6 Baymax Fruity Marshmallow Pops – Make Fruity Marshmallow Treats for Movie Night
Marshmallow creations are a big hit at parties – mainly because there’s so much you can do with them, they’re easy to get hold of in all shapes and sizes, and you can dip them, draw on them, melt them – they’re brilliant. So for our Big Hero 6 Movie Night over Hero’s birthday weekend, I made these Big Hero 6 Baymax Fruity Marshmallow Pops.
I was going to use red sparkly sugar crystals for decoration on top of the candy melts, but this time instead of just sugar on sugar, I decided to try something a little fruity – freeze dried fruit pieces. They taste good.
I came up with the Baymax idea after making over 200 marshmallow snowmen in a similar fashion for our infant school Christmas Fayre. They sold quicker than any other item there. There’s something very attractive about a huge marshmallow or two on a stick, all decorated and dipped in something sweet.
What is Disney’s Big Hero 6 About?
Disney’s Big Hero 6 is the film that our friends – and anyone who knew us when Hero was born – thought we had named him after the main character in. Big Hero 6 came to the cinema screens in 2014 and is Walt Disney Pictures’ 54th animated film. It tells the story of Hiro Hamada, a 14 year old boy who’s somewhat of a robotics genius, but who also spends far too much time gambling and hustling in shady robot wars. He lives with his aunt and big brother Tadashi, who is studying at the San Fransokyo [a mix of San Francisco and Tokyo] Institute of Technology. To divert his baby brother from his dangerous pastimes, Tadashi brings Hero to the Institute to be inspired to work hard – and this is where Hiro meets Tadashi’s friends – Fred, Go Go, Honey Lemon and Wasabi – and his creation, Baymax. All is going well until in a horrible event, Tadashi dies and leaves Hiro alone.
Who is BayMax?
Baymax is the character that’s going to pull at your heartstrings and make you cry. Created by Hiro’s big brother, Tadashi Hamada, Baymax is an inflatable robot, created to be a “personal healthcare companion”. He’s possibly the most beautiful character Disney ever created.
Big Hero 6 Baymax Marshmallows
I used the Bright White Candy Melts from PME, which I got from The Vanilla Valley – you could use white chocolate too. I got the freeze dried raspberry pieces from Super Garden at Amazon here and I get the long sticks from the local flower market in bulk. You can usually get BBQ skewers in Supermarkets and they will of course do the same thing.
Enjoy making your Baymax Fruity Marshmallow Pops – I’ve popped the step by step photos in this post to make things even easier. Are you satisfied with your care? haha. Enjoy 🙂
Big Hero 6 Baymax Marshmallows
- Wooden Dowels or Kebab Skewers
- Microwaveable Bowl for Melting Candy Melts or Chocolate
- Bowl for Sprinkles
- Greaseproof Baking Paper and Tray or Baking Mat
- Edible Marker in Black
- 1 Bag Large Marshmallows
- 1 Bag Regular Marshmallows
- 1 Tub Heart Sprinkles
- 1 Tub Freeze Dried Fruit Pieces – raspberry strawberry or cranberry are all red so good choices
- 1 Pack White Candy Melts
- Skewer the smaller marshmallow first and move it up to about halfway.
- Add the large marshmallow – this is his body and so it needs to stand him up. Make sure the stick doesn’t poke through too far and wobble him over.
- With edible marker, draw Baymax’s features. They’re very easy, like a little barbell.
- Melt your chocolate or melts in the microwave and dip Baymax’s bottom into them, coating up about a third of the way.
- Remove from the candy or chocolate and make sure he’s not drippy.
- Hold over an empty bowl and sprinkle your freeze dried fruit pieces on,
- Take a heart sprinkle and dab with candy melt or chocolate, and place where Baymax’s heart is.
- Stand to set on greaseproof paper and refrigerate.
