GIGANTIC marshmallow on a stick!


Sophia wanted to give out something with a picture of her on it for her baptism luncheon, and this is what I came up with... GIGANTIC marshmallows on a stick with almond bark, sprinkles and tulle. My mom and I made them yesterday, and I think they turned out SO CUTE!!!




Seriously... what adult, or child wouldn't want one of these :)

How darling!?!

If you want to do this, you will need gigantic marshmallows. I found these in Salt Lake City at a Mexican Market. I didn't write down the name, but it is on 33rd South, just above state street, on the south side of the street, across from the movie theater.



They are so huge... I wonder how they are roasted by a campfire? They are $3.99 a bag. You get 30 in a bag. They are about half and half white to pink. I bought two bags, and made 30 sticks.

You also need wooden dowels. I forgot to take a picture, but mine are about 12 inches long, and they are from Wal-mart. Sucker sticks do not work. They are too short.



I just used crystal white sprinkles from Wal-mart. You could do all sorts of sprinkles, or nuts, or coconut. Put the sprinkles in a bowl, and use a spoon to sprinkle the sprinkles over the wet chocolate.



Almond bark. Melt in the microwave. You could add food coloring if you like. I just wanted white.

You can use all sorts of kitchen tools to apply the color. Below is the end of a wooden spoon, used to make polka-dots.





Egg strainer to make big polka-dots.



Paint brush for patterns.



Mini cheese graters for rectangles.



The side of a fork for making straight lines.



Cookie cutter for shapes. If I had known I was going to use cookie cutters, I would have bought a flower or some additional shapes.



End of a wooden spoon for dots.



Here is how they looked without the embellishments.




Finished product... SO CUTE!!!



Fun memory for a special day :)

Hi! Can you share how did you tie the tulle around the stick? Thank you.

Hello, I just used shiny tulle, and tied a bow. I can't remember, but I think I may have cut the loops of the bow. I am thinking I didn't cut them though. Good luck!
