Welcome to Verve's July Project Parade!! This month's theme is very fun and spirited...
. . . . . MY HERO . . . . .
This may be a person serving your country, a family member or a friend. For mine, I was inspired by 2 things...people who in general make my life happy and those fighting for our freedom. When brainstorming for this project, I knew that I wanted something fun, festive, a 3D project and, of course, a little chocolate always makes it better...right!!?? So this is what I came up with using the new Verve release, American Hero...
Are you looking at this and questioning "what in the world are those?" They are chocolate dipped and sprinkled marshmallows on lollipop sticks. YUMMY!
To make the marshmallows you need:
Dipping Chocolate (I used Baker's in it's own microwavable container)
To make them...
Heat chocolate according to packaging instructions. Place a marshmallow on a lollipop stick and dip into chocolate. Shake excess chocolate off (I actually twisted it off so there wouldn't be too much on the marshmallow). Roll in the sprinkles and place stick upright (I used a stryofoam block) and place in refrigerator to harden.
Here are a few more shots of the marshmallows and supplies...
And as with all of our project parades, there are prizes!!!!
