Yumminess on a stick - recipe and how to



They look good don't they?  They taste even better and they're ridiculously easy to make!  Inspired by those pricey little pretties in Starbucks =)


This is what you will need 

♥ chocolate 


♥ large marshmallows 


♥ sugar sprinkles 


♥ lolly sticks


♥ bowls / dishes


♥ rice


♥ silver foil





Fill a dish as deep as one third of your lolly sticks with rice and cover with silver foil 


Thread marshmallows onto lolly sticks and stab into the silver foil to make a hole


Break the chocolate into pieces and melt in the microwave - be careful not to burn it.  If your microwave has a power setting, turn it down so that it's not cooking on full power.  Stop and check the chocolate regularly.  Once it's melted with a few chunks, stop cooking and just stir to melt the remainder.


Dip a stick of threaded marshmallows into the chocolate and then add some sprinkles.  Put it into the silver foil holder you made so that it can stand freely whilst the chocolate sets.


Try not to drop your roll of silver foil in the chocolate like I did!


Make lots because they're really yummy 


Put them in the fridge to harden, especially if it's a hot day 
As you can see, I made some with milk and some with white chocolate and used contrasting heart shaped sprinkles.

The chocolate melts the marshmallow a bit on the inside, so when you eat them they're extra squishy and yum

I think they're great for when you want to make something sweet but don't have the time or all of the ingredients to make cakes.  Hope you like them =)
