Yesterday we threw a party for my little boy and his little pals. We had ten four year olds here, most of whom were boys. It was very fun, but utterly exhausting! The day before the party I let my son skip “quiet time” and had him help me cook up a storm in preparation for his party. One of the treats that we made for the party were these Spooky Halloween Marshmallow Dippers. They were so fun to make together! So so simple, yet spooky-fabulous enough to impress! We have made other versions of dipped marshamallows together in the past. They are one of our favorite kid-friendly treats.
If you want to make some of these Spooky Halloween Marshmallow dippers then you will need the following items:
* large marshmallows (We used the JUMBO kind that they make for s’mores. I had them on hand. Shocking, I know.) ;)
* vanilla candy coating/bark
* Halloween sprinkles
* orange food coloring
* lollipop sticks or straws (I found these fabulous seasonal ones at my local grocery store.)
* wax paper
Start by laying out some wax paper. Next you can sticking the sticks/straws into your marshmallows.
Follow the directions on the package to melt the candy coating/bark. Stir in orange food coloring to turn your dipping mixture orange.
Pour sprinkles onto a paper plate. Dip your marshmallows into the melted orange candy coating/bark. Allow the excess dip to drip off for a moment and then dip the still wet marshmallow into the sprinkles. Place on the wax paper to cool.
That’s it! So easy, but super cute. The possibilities are endless!
