This weekend the little girl I nanny for turns 6 years old! She is having a small birthday party, so Jeff and I decided to make a party/Valentine's Day treat for her to take to her friends at the party. They obviously aren't the healthiest, but are much healthier than a cupcake or piece of cake...and much cuter in my opinion.
- 1 container of Baker's melting chocolate
- 15-20 marshmallows
- red and pink sprinkles
- 15-20 lollipop sticks (you can find these at Michael's)
First, follow the directions on the Baker's container and melt the chocolate (30 seconds in microwave, then stir and repeat until fully melted). While the chocolate is melting, place a marshmallow on the end of the lollipop stick. Once chocolate is fully melted, dip half of the marshmallow into the chocolate. Sprinkle with colored sprinkles. Repeat until all of the lollipops are made, then place in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes for chocolate to harden. Enjoy! I bought these sprinkles a while ago and use them all the time! All of the colors are great.
Want to see some behind the scenes? Being a food blogger isn't as easy as it may seem. Jeff and I put a lot of effort into our pictures. We usually take anywhere from 20-50 pictures until we get the perfect one! Don't you just love his blue eyes? :) You could really make these for any event. For a baby shower, you could decorate them with blue and pink or yellow sprinkles. For Halloween, orange sprinkles. So on and so on! Have fun with them...we sure did :)
