July 4th: Firecracker Marshmallows

These aren't innovative.
These aren't new.
These are tasty.
I had some left over marshmallows.
I had some left over patriotic spirit from last year.
I have enough sprinkles to feed all the children in daycare in the state of Texas today, but....I didn't see that going over well, so I made these.
I didn't even include steps b/c it's just too easy.
I took bamboo skewers, white chocolate and marshmallows.
I melted the chocolate in the microwave for about 45 seconds.
Dipped half a marshmallow in the chocolate.
I then dipped that half in sprinkles.
I dipped the second half in chocolate (bet you didn't see that coming).
I dipped it in a different sprinkle combo.
I slipped it on the skewer.
Repeated the steps with a second marshmallow.
Added a little snip of licorice to the top...
I let them dry on wax paper.
I took a picture.
I ate them.
I could have decorated a cupcake with these
I could have decorated a cake with these.
But I ate them, and in doing this....
I decorated my left hip, and right thigh instead with an additional layer of....ummm....winter insulation. Yup....I'm always thinking ahead.

I found you on Thrilling Thursday Linky Party. I didn’t join since I haven’t created anything but I had to check out the projects everyone else did. Creative people inspire me and this project is an example of why so I am now following you. I would have never thought of firecracker marshmallows, or watermelon cookies. You have lots of neat stuff on here and I look forward to what you write in the future too. I hope you will follow me back I can be found in facebook too and twitter @DeniseLillaRose If you like/follow me there I will do the same for you. When you stop by my blog, please check out my kind of fashion (hair jewelry).
