I haven't caught up on reading blogs and thanking everyone who has stopped by. I promise I will -- just as soon as work calms down some.
I've got some great ideas for Easter and spring, but I just haven't had a free moment to wrap them up. (Anyone else know this feeling?)
So for now, I've got an easy (and totally yummy) project to share. I made these a few weeks back for a friend's going-away event. They were so much cuter than I imagined, and they were sooo much easier than I had hoped. I borrowed the idea from Kraft's web site. Check out the original here.
What You'll Need
large puffed marshmallows
dipping chocolate (I used Dolci frutta because I've found it hardens well unlike some others)
adorable sprinkles (emphasis on the word adorable!)
What You'll Do
- Open the bag of marshmallows. Avoid eating 15 of them like I did.
- Melt the chocolate.
- Dip each marshmallow into the melted chocolate.
- Drop your sprinkles on while the chocolate is still melted. Or dip the end into a bowl of sprinkles.
- Let cool/harden and enjoy!
You could always slide them onto a sucker stick, add fruit, do multiple marshmallows on a larger stick. Be creative! Have you ever done anything like this? I've seen it around before in a few different forms. I'd love to share with others if you have done something like this.
Back to work on the projects. I hope I get to share something fun and Easter-y soon!
