Valentine’s Kebabs

Strawberry Marshmallow Kebabs

Yep, you guessed it…more stick food!

The ingredients list for this recipe is VERY short.  

What you will need:

Strawberries
Marshmallows

Shish kebab sticks, scissors and a bit of water to keep those marshmallows from sticking to things.  If you are worried about the sharpness of the shish kebab sticks for those precious little chubby fingered children, just snip the tips of the sticks slightly so they aren’t so incredibly pointy.  


Step One:  Rinse strawberries, remove stem, slightly hull each one and cut them in half.

Step 2:  Using scissors dampened with water, cut marshmallows in half.

Moisten the shish kebab stick with a bit of water, shake off the excess and, alternating the strawberries and marshmallows, slide your ingredients on the stick.  If you wanted to go a bit more decadent, you could half dip the strawberries and marshmallows in chocolate and use Valentine’s themed sprinkles to decorate.

We tried to leave simple alone but then we thought of chocolate,
which can only improve food, right?

We took our marshmallows, cut them in half and dipped them
in warmed chocolate flavored coating.

The strawberries were done using the same method.  However, once we placed them on wax paper to set, we decided that they needed sprinkles.  We found some red sugar pearls, silver dragees and some white edible glitter and gave our treats some bling.  

 We skewered them all again once the chocolate had set up.

Now wouldn’t you love to get one of these from your sweetheart?

 My sweet boy sure loved getting one from me!

This little one loved his as well, but didn’t want to get his hands dirty. 

I can only imagine how perfect these valentine’s treats would be for your child to give to their friends at their class parties.
