Paper candy sticks or wooden skewers
Food coloring gel-optional
Candy sprinkles/colored sugar-optional
- Melt the candy melts in microwave safe bowl and stir in food coloring gel to achieve desired color if needed.
- Dip Marshmallow into first candy color, if using white don't cover the marshmallow all the way, only dip 1/2 or 2/3 of it. Remove from candy melt and let the excess drip off.
- Note: I chose to use ramekins for the candy and held the marshmallow with my fingers and dipped them, adding the stick after they dried. This worked well because I did not completely cover the marshmallow.
- Place on wax/parchment paper/silicone and allow to dry for a couple minutes.
- Dip marshmallow into each additional color, letting dry between colors. I'm sure you get the idea.
- If not using all candy melts you'll have to dip the marshmallow with wet candy coating into the sprinkles/colored sugar before it hardens.
- Allow to set up on wax/parchment paper/silicone liner. Once dry, add stick, twisting while inserting, trying to not push all the way through the marshmallow. Gently lift off paper/silicone by nudging the marshmallow with your fingers, not by pulling on the stick. Thrifty tip: If you don't have paper candy sticks you can cut wooden shish-ka-bob skewers in half (remove the point too). An added bonus, they are much cheaper.
- Serve and enjoy!
My biggest tip would be, get the kids involved! It's a great messy, sticky project:@)
