I simple ADORE finding the fun and whimsy in any season — and these cute little Easter Chicks are simply another part of our adventure.
Marshamallow Easter Chicks
- 10 Large Marshmallows
- Yellow Candy Melts 14 oz., bag
- Food decorating Marker
- Orange Starburst Candy
- Pretzel Sticks
- Yellow & Red Fruit Slice Candy
Make Feet & Beaks:
Using a knife cut Orange Starburst to form a triangle shape. (If your Starburst are very hard, they can be softened in the microwave for just a few seconds, carefull to not overheat!)
Form it into the shape of a chicken foot.
Put Foot on a plate and make 3 small cuts on the large end to form toes. After you make the cuts, you can round off the toes a little with your fingers.
Press the end of a Pretzel stick into the smaller end of the foot. Use your hands to form foot around pretzel stick.
Make the Beak by cutting off another triangle piece of Starburst and forming it into a beak shape.
Cut Yellow Fruit slice candy in half to make (2) Wings
Melt Yellow Candy Melts per directions on package. (Most are microwavable)
Stick large Marshmallow onto the end of a fork and completely cover in Yellow Candy Melts.
Stick Legs and beak into Marshmallow.
Add Sucker stick if you would like.
After Candy melt has set a little then add Yellow fruit slice wings.
If you are making a Rooster add the Red Fruit slice to the top of the head.
Allow to Candy Melt to completely dry.
*Tip: Use Styrofoam covered in foil to stick sucker sticks in while candy hardens.
*Tip: It’s cute to mix it up a little and add feet directly to marshmallow.
Using a food decorating pen, make small dots on chicks for eyes.
