Ice Cubes Mini Tutorial

For Sawyer's birthday we had marshmallows dipped in chocolate (blue) and dubbed them ice cubes. These treats are very yummy and simple. I dare say it's even a kid friendly project. Here are the details.

2 bags of large marshmallows
lollipop sticks
Melt away chocolates or almond bark (these are what I like to use)
Food coloring (optional, if you have white chocolate and want a color)
Toppings: sprinkles, peppermint, just use your imagination
Block of foam

Place marshmallows on lollipop sticks
Melt the chocolate according to package directions
Dip half the marshmallow in chocolate
Sprinkle with topping (important to do while still wet)
Place in foam until cool

It's nice to do this project with a partner. We had an assembly line of 3 people: 1 person dipped the marshmallow, 1 person sprinkled, and 1 person inserted the pops into the foam. I'm sure kiddos would love to do the sprinkling :)

Quick, easy, tasty, and cute that's my kind of project!

Unfortunately, I did not take any pictures of the process. Here's a tutorial with more pictures for those visual learners. And how appropriate that the tutorial is valentine's day inspired. V-day is just around the corner and this would make a great treat for the classroom or office.
