I’m guest posting today over at Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons. The lovely Jill is my hostess, and if you haven’t visited her site yet, you must scroll through the clever food art she makes for her three boys. I’m all dessert, but she finds ways to turn breakfast, lunch,dinner, snacks AND treats into cute and crafty and sometimes silly creations. So I made some dragonfly and butterfly marshmallow pops.
I thought in honor of Spring arriving–though it seems it arrived last November, what with our crazy mild Winter–I thought I’d pull out my trusty food coloring pens and whip up some flying bugs. The prettier ones anyway.
You will need:
food coloring pens
food coloring (green or any other color)
*Find the lollipop sticks, food coloring and paint brush at the craft store. You may also find food coloring pens there, though I recommend Americolor Gourmet Writers or the FooDoodler Fine Linepack of ten, both available in specialty stores or online. I have a whole post all about food coloring pens HERE.
What to do:
First, paint your lollipop sticks. Mix a few drops of green food coloring (or any color you like) with a couple drops of water on a piece of wax paper. Paint the lollipop sticks and let them rest on the wax paper until dry. Use the food coloring pens to draw your butterflies and dragonflies (or anything!). Skewer the marshmallow with a lollipop stick and that’s it!
