After deciding on making the Jello Cake for the 4th, I thought I'd try something else that could be eaten on go since I knew there'd be lots of kids (and adults) moving around a lot. I didn't want to do cupcakes and I had seen on Pinterest a great idea of coating marshmallows and putting them on sucker sticks. I didn't even feel like using sucker sticks... I wanted these to be easy and quick, both for me and the poeple eating them.
I used one whole bag of regular marshmallows and one bag of coconut covered. I melted some chocolate candy melts and used maybe 2/3 of the bag for all of the marshmallows. I then dipped the ends in sugar - red and blue of course!
In the future, I'd probably either pick a different type of sprinkles or just leave them off. The sugar added an extra crunch that wasn't the most pleasing. But everyone ate them and so I'll probably do them again. It'd be an easy addition to any buffet and the colors could be changed for any holiday. Orange, purple and black for Halloween? Red and green for Christmas?
