This edible craft was HOOT to make. Too much? I couldn’t resist. They were also a bit messy, but quick and easy to put together. I bet kids would love this one. Halloween edible craft #3: Owl S’mores!
I apologize for the horrible photos. I made the mistake of placing the marshmallows too high up on the cracker, and once I microwaved them, them became cemented to the paper plate. So I could not move them to a pretty platter. There was A LOT of trial and error. So below are some helpful tips..
Some helpful tips:
- Only microwave the marshmallows for a few seconds (mine took 8). Remove them immediate when they begin to puff up. Pull them out early and they’ll still feel tough to the touch and wont flatten. Cook them too long and they turn to goo, very sticky goo. It’s a delicate balance.
- Place the marshmallows about 1/2 – 1 inch from the top of the graham cracker or else the melted marshmallows will stick to whatever you place them on and it will be nearly impossible to move them.
- You may want to use a bit of chocolate frosting to stick the chocolate chips to the yellow candy melts, otherwise, they won’t stay on.
- Graham crackers ($2.18 at Wal-Mart)
- Yellow candy melts ($2.99 at Wal-Mart, Michael’s, and Joann’s)
- Chocolate chips
- Candy corn ($1.00 at Dollar Tree, $1.99+ everywhere else)
Step 1: Break the graham crackers in half, forming 2 squares.
Step 2: Cut the marshmallows into 2 equal halves, creating the eyes. Place the marshmallows 1/2 – 1 inch from the top of the cracker. Gently press down on the marshmallows until you feel them squish.
Step 3: Place the yellow candy melts onto the marshmallows. Microwave for 3-8 seconds or until the marshmallows begin to puff up.
Step 4: Place the chocolate chips in the middle of the yellow candy melts. Add the candy corn just below the eyes and gently push the candy corn up.
