Hiya!

So, those are the ones that I'm going to show you how to make today. Here we go!
 
 
For 1. you will need:
 
About 20 Marsh mallows.
 
Orange Candy Melts
(available from Amazon but they are also available in the baking section at most craft stores)
 
Yellow Candy Melts
(available from Amazon but they are also available in the baking section at most craft stores)
 
Lolly Pop Sticks
(available from Amazon but they are also available in the baking section at most craft stores and also in large supermarkets)
 
STEP 1
 
Lay out your marshmallows on a tray, covered in greaseproof paper, ready to dip into the candy melts. Stick the lolly pop sticks in the top of the marshmallows (it doesn't really matter which way up they go).
 
STEP 2
 
Melt the candy melts according to the instructions on the packet. Put them in a bowl and lay out next to the marshmallows.
 
STEP3
 
Dip each marshmallow in the orange candy melts about 2/3 up the marshmallow.

Once all the marshmallows have dried from the orange candy melts, dip them all in the yellow, about 1/3 up and leave them to dry.
 
STEP 5
 
Serve, share and enjoy!
