Marshmallow Wands

Nothing really says summer like marshmallows! Yes, they are available all year round, and we eat them no matter what the time of year. But summer seems to bring out the marshmallow lover in all of us! These simple Marshmallow Wands are an ode to the biggest holiday of the summer. With their sparkly sugars and their chocolate covered goodness they bring to mind warm summer nights, blinking fireflies, giggling with friends in the backyard under a blanket of stars, and wishing the summer would never end!
Marshmallow Wands
White Candy Melts
Candy Sticks
Chocolate Candy Melt
Red Sugar
Blue Sugar
Red, White and Blue Icing
Red, White and Blue Sprinkles

To make the wand with one blue end and one red end
dip one end of the marshmallow into
the white candy melt. Go a little over the edge like in the pictures.
Immediately dip it into your bowl of blue sugar.
Dip the other end the same way, but use red sugar.
Let dry.
 Melt the white candy melt.
Dip the end of each stick into the candy melt,
and while it is still wet, stick the wet
end into the marshmallow.
This will help the marshmallow stay on the stick.

To make this wand with the stripes going around it,
dip the top into the candy melt and
the blue sugar. Then take an offset spatula, dip
it in to the candy melt, and immediately sprinkle with sugar.
Rotate red and blue all the way around.
To finish,  dip the stick into the white candy melt,
just like above.
To make the chocolate covered marshmallows,
insert the marshmallow onto the stick, and let dry.
Dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate melt.
Let it dry, and the decorate with icing.

Go have fun!
