Mummy Marshmallow Pops

Marshmallow pops have become a favorite at our house. I first fell in love with the idea a few years ago when I made these 4th of July marshmallow pops! Ever since, my mind automatically begins to conjure up a new version every time one season melts into another. I just can’t help myself.

I thought that these marvelous mummies just screamed Halloween!

Well they would if they had a mouth. Ha.

I like to use decorative straws rather than lollipop sticks to give an added visual punch (you can find them at Target or any craft store). I couldn’t decide which size marshmallow had the cutest *cute* factor so I used both!

Other than marshmallows and straws, candy eyes and candy melts are all you’ll need to create these little sweeties.

Pumpkin Ideas :: Glow In The Dark Pumpkins

Tis the season for fun and festive pumpkin ideas, fabulous costumes and evenings spent whispering ghost stories around a fire pit.

Pumpkin Ideas Glow In The Dark Pumpkins

Every October my mind begins to swirl with a plethora of festive pumpkin ideas. First of all I adore pumpkins and secondly , since I was a wee little nipper,  I have loved every single moment of the pumpkin carving experience. From sketching out ideas for just the right face, to reaching my hand into the cold stringy goo, to roasting the harvested seeds, I love the tradition of carving pumpkins.

In fact, I still treasure the experience today with my girls even though their tiny chubby hands that I once held and helped navigate the slippery orange orbs have grown into long beautifully manicured ones that can carve and cutout the most amazing creations.

The other night as we huddled around the newspaper filled island, brainstorming our pumpkin ideas, I was struck with a glowing idea!! What would happen if I used glow sticks inside the carved pumpkins instead of candles????

Magic would happen, that’s what.

Red and yellow and green glowing marvelously magical pumpkins that won’t catch on fire or blowout (and can even become your very own night light in your bedroom if you wish).

And that’s part of what makes Halloween so much fun if you ask me. The marvelous magic that falls over the land for an evening of pure imagination.
