Marshmallows + Candy Melts + Candy Eyeballs =

... Pac-Man marshmallows!

 
Now I have an edible Pac-Man set to go with the definitely not-edible Pac-Man rubber finger tips.

Materials: large marshmallows, Wilton Candy Melts (I used yellow, red, white, blue, and orange), and Wilton Candy Eyeballs, waxed paper

To make the ghosts:
Melt one color of candy in a small bowl. Drop a marshmallow in and swirl it around until it's completely covered. Lift it out with a fork and let it drain slightly. When it's done dripping, transfer it to waxed paper. Let it cool for a minute or two, then put the eyeballs in place. If they slump downhill, remove them and wait another minute and try again. Or leave them that way, like my Clyde (orange). Repeat for the rest of the ghosts.

To make Pac-Man:
Compress one marshmallow vertically until it is more round than cylindrical. Use kitchen shears to snip out a triangle from one side. 



Dip it in yellow and swirl to coat it completely. Lift Pac-Man out with a fork, allowing all the extra candy to drip off. Put it on waxed paper and let it cool for a minute or two before adding a single eye. 

Oh, and don't rinse out the bowls of melted candy yet. Tomorrow I'll show you how to use up the little bits that were left over.

  1. Do you know what I like best about your blog?
    You have ideas and projects that are real. Not necessarily perfect, but doable and fun and that are not so highfalutin that a "regular" person can't do it. Thank you for that!. I have been a Pinterest Fail Postergirl but your projects give me an opportunity to succeed.
