RECIPE : Marshmallow 'Sparklers'


Bonfire Night has crept up on me!
Its such a colourful, fun celebration, I wanted to make a simple treat that reflected all the gorgeous vibrant colours of the night.

***

 Just because you may be losing or maintaining weight, there's no need to miss out on fun traditions. Sometimes we simply have to find low-fat ways of incorporating some treats so that we can enjoy ourselves just like everyone else.
These will appeal to kids and adults, young and old, Weight Watcher or not. They're a chocolatey, gooey treat but won't break the Smartpoints bank! I thought they would also lend themselves to being easily consumed outside in the freezing night air without having to remove your gloves. Always a good thing on a chilly, November night.

These gorgeous Marshmallow 'Sparklers' are 1sp/1pp/approx.50kcal each.

***

You Will Need:

8 Marshmallows
10g Plain chocolate
2 teaspoons sugar sprinkles
Bamboo skewers

***

These really need no explanation...
Simply melt the chocolate. Pop the marshmallows onto bamboo skewers. Dunk the top of the marshmallows into the chocolate...straight into some sprinkles, then leave to set in glasses, a jug or a vase.



If you don't have any bamboo skewers, these look equally gorgeous in tiny petit-four cases. I like to use hundreds & thousands and sugar strands to add some variety, colour and texture to these fun little treats.

Wishing you a fun, safe Bonfire Night.
Whoosh! Bang! Squidge!

UPDATE!



These also look gorgeous in tiny little petit four cases on sticks. I stuck them into a base made of florists polystyrene for a fab display.
