|I am so sorry that my pictures are horrible. I used to at least try to get one nice picture. But after 3 hours of dipping and wrapping these I was just done.|
I have been dreaming about these for a long long time! You all dream about sugary treats right? Wait, don't answer that, I don't want to know!
So I have had these on my mind obviously, and that is because I have been obsessed with marshmallows ever since I first tried to make them a little while back. Seriously, I think about all the ways I want to make them, and how I want to make lots of them. So I finally did it. I made some. And I am so glad I did. My pants, not so glad, they are getting a little mad at me. Oh well, I can always get new pants right?
This is just the first pan,by the end my whole table was covered in icing sugar.
|These are the two cutters I used, it is amazing how many more you get with the smaller cutter. But I loved how big the big ones were, so much good stuff!|
To start out I made 3 batches of marshmallows. Yes I said 3! My thinking was, if you are going to do it, do it right, and make enough to share. I wanted some for both of my jobs, some for the trampoline place we are going to, some for the tutor and if I have some left over, some for me. Okay who am I kidding, I ate myself silly before they were even dry. And I made these before my self imposed spending freeze.
To make these I used the recipe from Martha Stewart that I posted about here. I really like this recipe because there are no eggs, and I am getting to the point where I can whip up a batch in half an hour.
|If this picture was not so crappy you would be able to see the melted candy melts and the graham cracker crumbs.|
|This is the lollipop stick, I had to hold it in the marshmallow for a few seconds to let the chocolate set and hold it.|
I will never be accused of being too smart.
Just so you know.
|I ended up using a whole box of the crackers for this, I was surprised how much I used.|
|These were my first two, I was very happy how they turned out.|
|Another amazing picture or my baby ones.|
|This is my little army of Smore pops, and that was less than half of them.|
|These are the large ones, they were so good!|
I ended up running out of crackers and could not convince Pork Chop to go to the store with me. He is now allowed to play at the park with his friends, so it is going to be harder to bribe him into the car. What am I going to do when he is older and no longer wants to talk to me or be in pictures and you know be cute? I may have to have another one, or get a puppy. Either way.
Anyway, the sprinkle topped ones were great too, just not a smore like great. If that makes and sense at all.
|I was too lazy to look for cute sprinkles, so I just took the only non holiday sprinkle I could find on the Wall O' Sprinkles.|
|The one on the right, that is for me, the tiny ones, those are for everyone else. I deserve the biggest!|
