Blast from 4th of July Past...

I made these last year for 4th of July and wanted to re-post b/c they are SO easy to make and SO yummy to eat!
So easy, all you need is a bag of marshmallows, and some candy melts.
I have some chocolate and sprinkles I may use this year, but you get the idea from the pictures.

I did cover the craft block with cute red & white polka dot wrapping paper,
but forgot to take a pic of it before we left. Oops!

I set out all my marshmallows on some wax paper counted them out.
Then I broke out my candy melts.
I started with the white candy melts first, b/c I knew I had to dye them blue
(my grocery was out of blue candy melts BOO!)
Added some blue food coloring
Mixed it up, and started dipping.
I placed these blue UP until they dried, then stuck in the sticks.
SOMEONE snuck in and stole one or maybe two!
I added the sticks when the blue was almost dry and then went to work on the red.
Melt- and it just so happens that my microwave melts 1 bag of candy melts in exactly 1 minute!

Repeat on all of the marshmallows and then

Hope you all have a GREAT 4th of July with your family & friends!
