Easter is quickly approaching so that means my Easter baskets, marshmallow eggs, and fun treats are ready to be handed out!
I love being able to make a fun Easter treat and attach a beautiful scripture about Christ’s death and the joy of his Resurrection. One fun Easter gift is chocolate dipped marshmallow egg baskets.
This is a fun gift to make for kids of all ages and can be quick and easy to throw together. I am making 6 of these for my sparkies (I’m a leader in Awana).
What you’ll need:
- Egg Shaped Marshmallows (or regular marshmallows)
- Lollipop sticks
- Chocolate Candy Melts
- Easter Buckets/Basket (I found mine at the dollar store)
- Floral Foam (or similar)
- Plastic Wrap or parchment Paper
- Edible Grass (Optional)
1) Cut the floral foam to fit inside your bucket/basket
I was going to use plastic wrap until I realized I was out 😉 so I was resourceful and used parchment paper instead and it worked great.
When I started crushing the oreos I realized this was messy business and that they were very sticky! So I stuck them in a bag first and then crushed them.
Now put your marshmallows on sticks, dip them in melted chocolate and sprinkle away.
5) Insert your pops and add grass
Now insert your dried marshmallow pops through the oreo’s into the foam and add some edible grass if you want.
