Tomorrow is Dr. Suess's birthday and NEA's Read Across America Day.
To celebrate I made these Cat in the Hat Marshmallow pops.
A very simple no-bake treat
They really are very neat
Make them today, or make them tomorrowed,
even if the marshmallows have to be borrowed
Here's yet another peak
Now make them yourself, even it's next week!
These are very easy to make. You'll need:
- Confectioner's Sugar
- Red Gel Food Coloring (available at most grocery stores)
- Lollipop sticks
- A paint brush used only for food
- Parchment Paper (wax paper would do just fine as well)
- Rolling Pin (or other heavy object)
- Two very small bowls or tea cups
- And a little water
You need two marshmallows per pop. Leave on whole and cut the other about 2/3 of the way down.
Stick your larger piece to the whole marshmallow using a little water. Do a bunch of those and set them aside.
Now take your small pieces of marshmallow, dip the sticky end in a little confectioners sugar so it's not sticky.
Set it between a folded piece of parchment paper and roll it out into a flat circle.
Stick this to the bottom of your stacked marshmallows. (my order went whole marshmallow, 2/3 marshmallow, flattened circle)
Now you have the basic hat shape!
Let this try for a few minutes and then put it onto a lollipop stick.
Add a drop or two of water to some red gel food coloring and paint strips three red stripes onto the sides and fill in the top with red and your done!
If you want to cut down on the food coloring just paint the stripes on the sides red and skip the top. It'll still look super cute.
