We have been so busy and took some time off from our blog this past week. I did however make this fun Baby New Year Pop with my 6 year old yesterday using things we had in our kitchen! They are easy to make and lots of fun for the kids to decorate themselves!
Baby New Year Pops
Vanilla Wafers (we like Who Nu)
Jet-Puffed Marshmallows (regular size & stackers)
Black, Red, & Yellow Edible Marker
Mini Chocolate Chips
White & Chocolate Cookie Frosting (Betty Crocker)
Take 4 vanilla wafers and squeeze either white or chocolate cookie frosting on the back sides. Cut a regular sized marshmallow in half using kitchen scissors. Place the halves on 2 of the frosted vanilla wafers. Place the other two frosted vanilla wafers on top and let dry. Poke a lollipop stick through the center of the marshmallows. We added just a little bit of white cookie frosting in between the two just to make extra secure.
We used a chocolate coin for the bottom of the hat. We placed a Tootsie Roll in the microwave for 7 seconds and pressed and shaped it for the top. We attached with chocolate cookie frosting and let it dry. We made the diaper and sash using stacker marshmallows and just cut them with kitchen scissors. We colored the sash using edible yellow marker and wrote 2013 using red edible marker. We cut 1 vanilla wafer using kitchen scissors to make the hands and feet and attached them with frosting. We made little fingers and toes using black edible marker.
We used white frosting and mini chocolate chips for the eyes. We used red edible marker to make the mouth. We cut a piece from a yellow Starburst to make the hair. We placed it in a glass and then attached the hat using chocolate cookie frosting. Let it dry and you will have a Baby New Year Pop!:)
