While tootling down the soda aisle to pick some root beer, I discovered this cool ice cube container. The bottom part is rubber, so you can easily pop out the ice cubes. I picked it up and figured I would figure out a good use for it. It came to me a few days later – mini Super Mario Brothers mushrooms!
Red candy melts
Green candy melts
White sprinkles, round (I used Spring Confetti from Wilton)
Ice cube container with rubber bottom
Sealable plastic bags
Step 1: Melt the Candy Melts
Step 2: Pour Candy in Container
Step 3: Add Mini Marshmallow Stem
Allow the candy melts to sit for an hour.
When they’re set, pop out the candy melts. Careful when popping these out – one hit me right in the noggin! I could’ve been killed.
Step 4: Seperate White Sprinkles
Step 5: Dip the Candy Tops and Add White Sprinkles
Take 1/4 cup of the candy melts and microwave for 20 seconds, stir, and repeat until the candy is fully melted. Dip in a mushroom and shake off the excess candy.
Add white sprinkles to the tops of the mushrooms! I wasn’t able to take pictures for this bit since it’s a two-handed operation.
