So between a week of potty training (it worked this time, bye, bye diapers) and having to be home for the contractors renovating the bathroom, Nate and I have spent a great deal of time inside the house. Team that with triple digit temps and that means that I have had to get really creative to keep the little guy (and myself) entertained. Thus, marshmallow pops.
Lollypop sticks (or drinking straws or Popsicle sticks or bamboo skewers or chopsticks)
An assortment of jimmies, colored sugars, sprinkles
Wax paper/parchment paper/aluminum foil coated plate or tray
Stick the lollypop sticks in the marshmallows
Dip the marshmallow in the melted chocolate. Repeat as necessary. [I showed Nate how to do this once and he did he rest]
Dip the now chocolate coated marshmallow in the jimmies, colored sugar and sprinkles of your choice. [Nate had a ball with this one.]
Put finished marshmallow pops on a wax paper/parchment paper/aluminum foil coated plate and pop in the fridge for a few minutes to harden the chocolate.
Your end product will look something like this:
Nate had a blast, he got to "cook" something on his own, we all got a treat for alter and it ate up and hour of the day... all in all a successful project.
