Spring Marshmallow Pops
Oh my goodness. These were really fun and easy to make. All of my kids participated in the process. We hosted a dinner party for my mother's birthday and made these treats for all of the cousins... (8 in total). The ingredient list is very small: Standard size marshmallows, candy sticks, white melting candy wafers, food dye and sprinkles, sprinkles and more sprinkles. You simply dip half of the marshmallow into the tinted melted wafers, sprinkle on topping while still wet and set to dry.I discovered that a baking dish covered in foil with worked the best for allowing them to harden without smearing your work everywhere. I did put them in the fridge to hasten the process, but that would be optional.
Very simple, very easy to tailor to different seasons/events and allowed the kids to participate!! I would also add that these things were so amazingly over-the-top sweet, that there was no temptation on the part of the grownups to snitch! Whoo Hooo! Enjoy
