These came about mostly my accident. I was trying something else that didn’t work and ended up with these rays of sunshine. My daughter is into unicorns and rainbows now (ah, does a ’80s kid like me proud) so I’m hoping she still is at her next birthday.
you will need:*
*I used red, yellow, green, blue and purple sprinkles. I found five marshmallows worked best per stick, so poor orange and indigo got the shaft. Find lollipop sticks in the craft store.
step one: glitter up your marshmallows
Have ready a bowl of water, a paper towel, an empty bowl or plate, an open container of any color sprinkles and a piece of wax paper. Skewer a marshmallow at one of the flat ends with a toothpick. Use the toothpick to hold the marshmallow, submerge the marshmallow fully in the water quickly, and remove. Dab the excess water on the paper towel, hold the marshmallow over the empty bowl and sprinkle generously with sprinkles to entirely coat the marshmallow. Carefully remove the marshmallow from the toothpick and set on a piece of wax paper to dry. Let dry several hours. Repeat with more marshmallows in the different colors.
step two: add the stick
Dab a paper towel in Crisco and grease the top half of a lollipop stick. Slide the rainbow of marshmallows on the stick. Tips: Don’t skip the Crisco, it makes this step much easier. And, insert the lollipop stick into the hole left by the toothpick.
