Edible Sparklers and Rockets for your Party!

We've been having a great time making edible sparklers and rockets.  We're celebrating a bit early because we won't all be together on the 4th of July.   The fun thing about both of these treats is that not only are they fun to eat, but they are fun to make too!  The edible rocket fireworks are pictured above and the edible sparklers are pictured below.  

We'll start with how to make the Sparklers First:

To make your Edible Sparklers you will need: Frosting, Holiday Marshmallows, a spreading knife, sprinkles and stick pretzels.

This is a kid-friendly project. If you are having people over for a party, you may consider having someone help the kids make these while the adults chill and chat.

1- Spread a little frosting on the star marshmallows.

I also tried using the trees. They look a little like rockets later?
2- Insert the pretzel.

3- Sprinkle some patriotic colored sprinkles and you are done!
I love to eat these because they are the perfect combination of sweet and salty.

Now for the Edible Rocket Fireworks!
To make your edible Rocket Fireworks you will need: at least one color of marshmallows, frosting, a spreading knife, pull-n-peel, and sprinkles.

1- Make a cut through the marshmallow and cut off a piece of pull-n-peel.  Mine came in bunches of 9 little pieces put together.  I liked groups of 5 the best.  I experimented with different lengths and longer looked better to me.  Around 2 inches is about right, give or take :)
2- Insert the pull-n-peel into your marshmallow. {Little Project Tip:}  It is easier to pull it apart now before you insert it.  Peel it most of the way down.
3-  Spread frosting around the outside of the marshmallow. 
4- Then roll it in sprinkles.

5- Take another marshmallow and frost it and roll it in sprinkles as well.  I used a different color for this second marshmallow.
6- Then frost the top flat part of the marshmallow.

7- Stack your marshmallows on top of each other with the sticky frosting holding them together.  {Little Project Tip:} If yours need to sit and look pretty for along time you may want to fortify them by using a piece of a stick pretzel through the middle of the two marshmallows to help them stand up.  The pull-n-peel can make the rocket a little top heavy after awhile.
8- Eat and celebrate!

 I hope you have a fabulous and safe 4th of July!

Cute treats. I just bought a bag of the star shaped marshmellows just b/c I thought they were cute. Now I have an actual idea to use them for. Thanks.
