Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday today, here's a SUPER simple treat.

  • Marshmallows
  • 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) Let it dry for a couple minutes. 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!
