While at the beach the beginning of this month my sister Kim shared with me her Woman's World magazine, and on the 3rd page was this adorable fun kid recipe from blogger Vanessa Coppola from See Vanessa Craft. (You must hop on over and check out Vanessa's blog...so many great ideas for parties and crafts!) Well it stuck in my head as being one of the cutest party treats I have ever seen. So today when my friend Donna invited us to her pool for a little swim party with the kids, I knew I was going to have to make Vanessa's summery sweet treat to take along.
These are incredibly easy to make with some pretty simple ingredients.
Here is what you will need...
About 15 lollipop sticks or straws. (I used plastic straws from Walmart and cut them down.)
1/2 12 ounce bag of light blue candy melts (also from Walmart)
1/4 cup of crushed graham crackers
15 cheddar flavored gold fish
30 large white pearl sprinkles for the fishy's bubbles
Push the straws or lollipop sticks into your marshmallows. Melt the candy according to package directions. For really smooth coverage I use a teaspoon and dipped it into the candy and then with the right side of the spoon I smoothed on the candy as I twirled the marshmallow stick. Then dip the bottom of the pop into the graham crushed crackers and lay them on their side on a clean plate. Press in the fish and the pearl sprinkles. The candy will hard pretty quick but if you are in a hurry you can pop them into the frig for a few minutes.
This darling recipe appeared in the August 11, 2014 of Woman's World Magazine
These pops are really perfect for a kid party...but I have to admit that adults like them too!!!
Hope you are enjoying a great day!
