Marshmallows for the 4th of July

Today’s 4th of July marshmallows are so simple …

I did use a different brand of marshmallows this time.  The brand name is “de la Rosa” and they are flavored vanilla and strawberry!  They are available in two sizes, large and extra giant.  Here is a photo …

You will need marshmallows, candy melts or chocolate, sprinkles and lollipop sticks.  To make the glittery star you will need Starburst (or any other candy that will work for you), “Disco Dust” (non-toxic glitter available at cake supply stores) and a star cookie cutter …

First melt your chocolate … put a stick almost all the way in a marshmallow (or 2 or 3 marshmallows) … dip it in the chocolate to coat …

Tap off the excess chocolate …

Add sprinkles …

  

Put it in a stand or styrofoam … pop it in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to set the chocolate …

To make the glittery stars … flatten the Starburst candy … I used my fingers … cut out the star using the cookie cutter …

  

Now sprinkle the Disco Dust on the star … do this on a piece of parchment or wax paper so that you can reuse any excess dust … try to keep you fingers out of the dust … it flies everywhere!  The Disco Dust will stick to the candy automatically …

  

I dipped some marshmallows and did not add sprinkles before putting them in the fridge … use some melted chocolate to attach the star to the marshmallow …

  

Now use more melted chocolate (just around the edges) to add sprinkles …

Disco Dust comes in many colors … I love way it adds sparkle!

Visit tomorrow to see Sweet Slider Cupcakes!
