Here are some pics of the little treat Merrick and I decided to make for all his friends in his class at Mother's Day Out. This year, Merrick became obsessed with marshmallows and gingerbread houses (and anything else that was pure sugar) so when I stumbled across this recipe, I knew it was the perfect treat for us.
I love making little treats like this with Merrick. One, it keeps him within my line of vision and in an area of controlled chaos. Secondly, I get to eat about seven or eight of them when he's not looking. C, if I train him right now, I could have him cooking dinner by the time he's seven years old. That's the plan, anyway.
The best thing about this "recipe" is that it only takes about 10 minutes to complete. There are two things I would suggest if you decide to make these yourself. One, don't "dip" the candy coated marshmallows into the sprinkles. Instead, put a few sprinkles in the palm of your hand and pour them on the marshmallow (over a bowl, of course). The second tip is to buy a little piece of styrofoam to use to stand the sugar plums up as the candy coating is hardening. Both these tips are to prevent the candy coating from getting smooshed.
