Short on time this week (it's a busy one, isn't it?), I wanted to prepare something fun for all the kiddies, but specifically the preschoolers out there who are probably bursting with excitement over Halloween. I think this would be a great food-craft for a class, home or church party and using nothing more than marshmallows, chocolate, pretzels and green food colouring this is super simple fun for everyone, including all your little chefs.
So, with Halloween just a few days away are you all ready and organized? What are your kids dressing up as this year? I'd love to hear your ideas....have a great day!
20 large marshmallows
20 long pretzel sticks
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp table cream
green food colouring
~ Place 2 tbsp of water in a shallow bowl and 5-6 drops of food colouring and combine well.
~ Place the marshmallows, one at a time, in the bowl and turn over to completely coat with the coloured water. Remove and place on a cooling rack placed over a cutting board covered with paper towel to dry.
~ Melt the chocolate in double broiler, or heat-proof bowl set over a pot of boiling water. Add the cream and mix well.
~ Dip one end of the marshmallow into the chocolate and place on the drying rack. The chocolate will be Franken-Mallow's hair. Dip the end of the toothpick or a wooden skewer into the chocolate and draw eyes, a nose and mouth into the marshmallow.
~ Stick pretzels into the sides of the marshmallow (for the bolts) and allow to completely dry.
