Fairy Puffs


I'll be revisiting these soon, and adding a little more pizazz now that I've perfected my technique, but I could not cross go, I could not collect 200 dollars until I shared this little idea for at the cheeky kitchen for mini-cotton candy on-a-stick I just stumbled upon. There is so much potential for the name alone- fairy puffs, fairy wands, mini-cotton candy, cute-pink-goodness. I don't know, but I pink, bubble letter LOVE these little gals. They are also really....really....really easy to make.
1. You need sticks (not a problem for me), white chocolate, large marshmallows, wax paper and cotton candy. I bought this bucket at Walmart, they also sell it at Sam's, and I've seen little bags of cotton candy at Target in the Dollar Spot, and the Dollar Store.

2. Slide your marshmallow on a stick. Melt your chocolate (I just melt mine in the microwave for about 30 seconds). Dip your marshmallow in your chocolate (I like to spoon it over so I make sure I get the top and bottom well coated). Pull a 'strand of cotton candy off and wrapped it around your (still warm) chocolate-covered marshmallow. Place it on wax paper to dry.

3. Ta Da!


I wish I knew about this idea when I threw the circus baby shower a few years back. It's all right, I've got a plan for packaging these up really cute, and a 'theme' event in mind for distributing them to friends. This is not the end of the pink puffs and I....no sir-eeee, Bob. You'll be seeing more of us in the near future.

Whoa, that is awesome. Perfect for a fairy/princess party!! I'm having a "Seal" party for my munchkin (at her request) in a month....and I am desperately trying to think of a way I could fit these in somehow. Seals use fairy wands....right? ;-)

So nice to meet you! These are absolutely adorable and I am sure we could handle this. I know all my little ones would love this and wouldn't they be appreciated even at an adult party. I was so surprised when I saw that it had a marshmallow in the center. Super cool.
