Looking for something fun and frugal for the 4th of July with your kiddos? Last week we found marshmallows and Pop Rocks at the Dollar Tree (for just $1 ~ of course!), and tried out making Pop Rock Marshmallow Pops in just a few minutes. Although they were a Pinterest failure for us, we still had fun making them, and my kids ate every last one.
Because I'm a frugal girl (and couldn't find those cute paper straws), I thought it would be fine to just substitute with peppermint sticks that I found at the Dollar Tree. Ummmm . . . maybe if they were skinny they would have worked just fine, but these fat sticks didn't want to hang onto my marshmallows at all, and we had a messy, sticky, disastrous treat. (My daughters word: FAILURE . . . but she licked up every bite.) 😉
See how to make them (so much prettier than mine!) over at The Decorated Cookie, and let me know how they go at your house if you're courageous enough to try them. (I really think they're such a cute idea, and would work perfectly if you follow her directions rather than skipping out on the right supplies!) I can coupon with the best of them, but Martha Stewart just doesn't live at my house. 😉
See, aren't those CUTE? Go HERE to make them correctly.
