Supplies for Monster Smoothies Eyes
- Cute Paper Straws
- 2 Marshmallows
- 2 Chocolate Chips
- Icing or melted white chocolate to glue on the eyes.
Begin by poking a hole in the round size of each marshmallow with a skewer. A skewer is sharper than a straw so it will make a nice hole for your straw. It will also help keep your straw clean.
Then, slide the straw into the hole you made with the skewer. To know where to place the marshmallow eyes, measure your glass so you will know how far down the straw to slide the eyes.
Next, use the skewer to poke a small hole into the flat part of the marshmallow. Then, melt a little white chocolate to use as glue to attach the chocolate chip to the marshmallow. Follow the melting directions on the chocolate package.
Then, dip the pointed side of the chocoalte chip into the melted chocolate and place it in the hole you made with the skewer.
Let the eyes dry completely so the chocolate chips will stay in place. Once they are dry, add them to your favorite smoothie and vola, you have a healthy monster smoothie for your kiddos.
