I went to town making some of our own…

Here’s how:

1) vanilla flavored orange candy melts (from Michael’s)

2) marshmallows

3) lollipop sticks

4) finely crushed graham cracker crumbs

(whirled them up in my bullet!)

home 124


(& some mini chocolate chips which
may or may not have been used & quickly consumed!  sorry no pics of the mini choc chips = no evidence that they existed!)


get the marshmallows all ready

& set aside the graham crumbs in a little bowl

then melt the candy

cover the marshmallows

(using a metal icing spatula to remove the excess)

and then dip in the crumbs (or mini choc chips - mmmm!)

and then place on waxed paper lined cookie tray

You can pop the whole tray in the fridge to help the candy to set more quickly

when all done - let the kids have a treat of one (or two!)

and wrap in little bags

I used green little twist ties curled around a chopstick to make
