And then I remembered that my kids are 2 and 4 and they couldn't care less what color frosting they were dipping their marshmallows into and what kind of candy they were sticking all over them... they just wanted marshmallows, frosting and candy. You know what kids are like.
So here you go. The easiest, sugariest little crafty treat, perfect for the 6 and under crowd (but loved by their mothers and fathers... because marshmallows are yummy at any age!)
- Lollipop sticks
- candy pieces (we used M&Ms and sprinkles)
- frosting (I bought mine, but if you make your own, make sure it is thick enough to stay on the marshmallow)
- food coloring
When your marshmallow pops are done, you might want to put them in the fridge for about 8-10 minutes so the frosting can set and the candy bits wont just melt off.
Expect a sweet and sticky mess... hurray for bathtubs.
And don't forget to watch over them, so sneaky little fingers don't make off with all the candy toppings.
