How could I forget these? They deserve their own post anyway! I really wanted to make some other type of mushroom-themed dessert, but couldn't find much. I found these fabulous creations using Bakerella's famous cake pop technique... but I really wanted something easier, so I came up with these semi-homemade versions: Gather your stuff- large marshmallows, sticks (you can use lollipop sticks or just skewers), red candy melts, white chocolate chips and doughnut holes. Oh, and make sure you have a wax paper lined cookie sheet near by. Then, cut the doughnut balls in half. In the microwave, melt the red chocolate candy and dip the half-doughnuts using a fork and scraping the bottom before you place it on wax paper so you don't get a huge build-up of candy on the bottom. Give it about a minute to barely set and then place white chocolate chips in the top... this is a good job for the kids. It doesn't really matter if this step is a little messy, you can clean up the edges later. Then, set up the container in which you will be placing your pops by lining it with at least an inch of foam... I always save foam board when it comes in boxes and packages because you can always find a use for it and who wants to fork out the dough for foam? Place large marshmallows on a stick leaving about a half an inch sticking out of the top. Then stick in the foam. When you have the marshmallow sticks all done and arranged the way you want, add the dipped doughnut holes to the tops. To glue them together, you can add a dollop of melted candy to the bottom of the doughnut before you attach it and then, when you place it on the end of the stick, gently hold the tops (dipped doughnuts) and bottoms (marshmallows) together for a minute or until secure. Add moss or whatever you want to cover the foam board and you're done. I love the way it looks like these little toadstools just popped up out of the moss. So cute! And, by the way, this is the last Smurfday Party Post! I'm abso-smurf-ly smurfed out!
