I found the idea for these cute little guys here: http://themomblog.freedomblogging.com/2009/06/30/win-cupcakes-from-guest-blogger-the-meringue-bake-shop/25837/
She did hers with big marshmallows and used them on her cupcake kabobs. So clever. I had grand ideas on how to use these as a garnish for our 4th of July dessert, but unfortunately I had none of the ingredients for any of my ideas and living 30 min. from the grocery store- you learn to either improvise or wait! I opted to wait since the lake and boat were calling my name. Oh well- I left them out on a plate and eventually they disappeared. Maybe you will have a good idea on how to use these little cuties for your independence day celebration. Let me know what you came up with.
The how to:
Dip one end of the marshmallow in a dish of water then pat dry on a napkin before dipping into red sprinkles. Repeat with other side, dipping in blue sprinkles.
In a nutshell: Very cute and very easy. I will make these again, maybe for other occasions using different color sprinkles.
