Chick On a Stick

You’ll need:

Regular marshmallows
Lollipop sticks
Yellow sugar sprinkles
Heart-shaped sprinkle
Chocolate sprinkles
Pink confetti heart-shaped sprinkles
1. Slide a regular marshmallow, flat-side up, on a lollipop stick. Cut another marshmallow in half and slide one half on top, rounded side up. Dip the chick into a bowl of water, and then roll it in yellow sugar sprinkles.

2. For eyes, attach round sprinkles, using white icing or edible adhesive. To make a mouth, attach a heart-shaped sprinkle upside down. For a tie, use white icing to attach three chocolate sprinkles to the body of the chick. Attach pink confetti heart-shaped sprinkles to the bottom for feet.

Bunny Lollipops

You’ll need:

Regular marshmallows
Mini marshmallows
Lollipop sticks
Red or pink confetti hearts or round sprinkle

1. To make the body, place one marshmallow flat-side up on a treat stick. Slide another marshmallow on top for the head.

Make a tiny cut in the middle of this half marshmallow and use white icing to attach three chocolate sprinkles to each foot.

2. With a black edible marker, draw eyes on the face. Use white icing to attach:

Mouth: A red or pink confetti heart or round sprinkle.

Whiskers: Two or three chocolate sprinkles on each side of the face.
