Pink Princess Sparkle Strawberry S'mores


Even though I usually post kids’ art activities, occasionally I’ll dabble in the cooking arena. (especially when it comes to s'mores). I use the word “cooking” very loosely. I’m one of the world’s worst cooks and am far from a pro in the kitchen. That said, I do enjoy the once-on-awhile ‘no cook’ recipe. Add in artsy intent and that’s totally my style. I’ve made Monet’s Impressionist cupcakes, Jackson Pollock style cupcakes (yes, I went through a serious cupcake phase) and some pretty princess and pirate popsicles.

While making princess popsicles I got slightly infatuated with the idea of making everything I could pink and sparkly. Around that time I developed a fascination with s’mores. I mean, I’ve always loved the regular marshmallow, graham and chocolate camping favorite. But, I started to realize that these magical marshmallow creations could be so much more. My son helped me to make a sprinkle-covered version that he enjoyed, but I wanted to feed my princess frenzy and make glittering ones. The result: Pretty pink princess strawberry flavored s’mores!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·         Marshmallows

·         Chocolate

·         Graham crackers

·         Strawberries

·         Pearlescent sugar

·         A heat-safe bowl

·         Wax paper

Here’s What to Do:

1.      Cut the strawberries into slices for your child.

2.      Heat the marshmallows. I used a microwave (I didn’t have a campfire available). But, you can use the traditional camping stick method or heat them over a stove (without putting them in the flame). Don’t allow your child to heat the marshmallows – do this step for her.

3.      Line a bowl with wax paper. This will help the marshmallows from sticking too much.

4.      Put the heated sugary treats into the bowl and have your child squish strawberries over them. Coat the marshmallows completely, turning them pink.

5.      Sprinkle the pearlescent sugar over the pink marshmallows.

6.      Use the left over sugar (it’s likely that your child will end up sprinkling extra sugar all over the bowl) to coat the strawberry bits that remain.

7.      Assemble the s’more. Graham cracker, sugar-coated berries, pink sugary marshmallows, chocolate, graham cracker!
