Hosting Easter dinner? Wrap these cute treats in cellophane bags to make adorable party favors for the kids' table. Be sure to set out some of these cute-as-can-be Bunny-Shaped Crayons for the kids too:)
Here's What You Need To Make a Baby Chick S'more
- Ritz Crackers
- Large Marshmallows (cut in half)
- Pretzel sticks (2 halves per s'more)
- Yellow Candy Melts (I melted about 3-4 per s'more)
- Orange Candy Melts (just a few cut in slivers for beaks)
- Edible Candy Eyes (I found mine in the baking aisle at Target, or learn how to make edible candy eyes from Amy at My Name is Snickerdoodle.
How To Assemble Your Baby Chick S'mores
First, melt yellow candy melts according to package directions. Dip Ritz cracker tops (one per s'more) in candy melts. Spread candy melt with knife if necessary. Add edible eyes and a sliver of orange candy melt for beak. Let cool on wire rack or wax paper. If you're in a hurry, they'll set faster in the refrigerator.
To assemble an Easter Chick S’more, place half of a large marshmallow, cut-side-down, on a plain Ritz cracker. Heat in microwave on a microwave safe plate until the marshmallow puffs. (Note: Microwaves vary so watch carefully. Mine puffed in about 12 seconds in a 1200 watt oven. Fresh marshmallows puff the fastest.) Quickly add pretzel stick legs and top with a candy-coated Ritz.
If you'd like to add wings to some, use a little extra melted yellow candy to add candy melt halves as pictured.
