Wow. I have been a busy lady! We recently moved into a new home and what a job this has been! I have finally put the house together enough to get back to what I enjoy doing! Blogging!! I know last year these cute Marshmallow Fire Crackers where all over Pinterest, my daughter just had to make them. It was the eve of July 4th and I didn’t have all the ingredients that they called for, so I searched my pantry to see what we could come up with. They turned out pretty good so we will share how we made our version!
What you will need:
- Fruit Roll Ups
- Starburst candies
- Kitchen Shears, Knife or Pizza Cutter
- Rolling Pin
- Powder Sugar
The first thing we did was prep all of our ingredients. We started by rolling our yellow Starburst candies,and then cut them into strips using our pizza cutter (you can also use kitchen shears or a knife). The pizza cutter made it easy to make strait lines and was easy for the kids you use too. Extra Tip…Warm the Starburst in your hands first to help make the Starburst more pliable.
Then, the girls cut strips of fruit roll-ups at about 1/4 inch wide.
My 3 year old liked this part the best. Place three marshmallows on a skewer. Extra Tip 2: Roll the skewer in powder sugar first and it will help the marshmallows from sticking as you slid them down the skewers.
Now, wrap the fruit roll-up around the marshmallows where they touch the other marshmallow.
Finally, top it off with the Starburst strips. We placed three strips of the Starburts cut at about 1′ and pressed them around the end the skewer.
Once, we had made a few we didn’t have anywhere to put them, so I filled a bowl with white rice and added a festive 4th of July bow to create a pretty display! Remember this was a last minute project the girls just had to do!
Our finished project!
These Marshmallow Fire Cracker Skewers were a hit among the kids! They would be cute for a Dr. Suess party also.
