Last year my son wanted a Buzz and Woody themed birthday party.
The love for Toy Story runs deep with this one! Last year we did a little Photo Booth with an Etch-A-Sketch theme. I have a tutorial for you!
THIS year he is ALL ABOUT everything Lego.
And not lego duplo.
He wants ‘tiny Legos’.
me us Lego now has Lego Juniors.
They are great for his little fingers and it is very attainable for him to put together with little to no assistance. PLUS one of the sets he reciepved from his Aunt has a STORAGE BIN included. THANK YOU LEGO!
So in planning his birthday party he told me he wanted to have cake pops that looked like the Lego head. Um? Have you seen the lego head? It looks like a marshmallow. Let’s go with a marshmallow instead of a cake pop. Deal?
- Mini marshmallows
- Regular marshmallows (did you know you can MAKE your own marshmallows!)
- Yellow candy melts
- Lollipop Sticks
- Chocolate chips (for face details) or use a Black Food Writer Marker
Cut the mini marshmallows in half horizontally and attached them to the regular marshmallows with drop of melted yellow candy melts.
Dip the lollipop stick in the melted candy melts and insert in to the bottom of the ‘Lego Head’.
Now it is time to dunk the heads in the melted yellow chocolate melts.
I did not have a piece of styrofoam to help keep the Lego Heads from getting messed up while they dried BUT I did have my grill basket! I am thinking some colanders would work also.
I pipped on the faces or you can use the edible food markers once the candy coating has set completely.
