Today I have a fun little treat for you to make with your kiddos. And its perfect for summer! My daughter was very excited to help me with this project. We made Strawberry Marshmallow Kabobs as a fun treat for her friends. A couple weeks ago we celebrated her turning 3. Instead of a big party, we decided to just have a small dinner with a couple friends, and these kabobs were the perfect gift. All you need is
Almond Bark (either white or dark chocolate work)
Large Marshmallows (we used the pink strawberry flavored ones)
And Wooden Skewers (at walmart I found a pack of 12 for under $3, and if you are making them for small kids you can buy them without a pointed end and they still work just as well)
It’s really as easy as the pictures show you. Cut the stems off the strawberries, carefully push a marshmallow 2 inches or so down on the skewer, then carefully push the skewer through the strawberry. I put 3 marshmallows and 2 strawberries, but you can put as many as you want. Since we were making them for small children, I figured 3 large marshmallows would be enough sugar. Another great option if you don’t want to use marshmallows is to use angel food cake, you can buy them already baked at the grocery store and cut it into small squares. We then lined a baking sheet with foil and laid the skewers down once they were all done. Then melt your almond bark in the microwave and drizzle it over the top of the skewers. Then refrigerate if you live in Phoenix where its boiling hot to let the chocolate harden. Once the chocolate is hard flip the skewers over and drizzle the chocolate on the other side. We then added these adorable tags from a great etsy shop called Lavender Peach! They were the perfect added touch. Audra was dying to eat one, can you tell.
The birthday girl! I also got this sign from Lavender Peach! So cute huh!
