Every time I look at these I semi-cringe because they look a little too convincing. But I assure you, they are tasty. I mean, they’re made out of candy after all. Of course they’re bound to be delicious.
Apart from being a fun, impressive sweet snack, they’re also obnoxiously easy to make. Seriously though — these take a verrry minimal amount of effort to put together.
All you’ll need is some mini marshmallows, some candy sticks (remember when they were called candy cigarettes?), and your edible earwax of choice. I personally used caramel sauce, however you could also dip the marshmallows into peanut butter, melted butterscotch chips, or even melted yellow chocolate to achieve the used cotton swab look.
If you’re looking to bring a total ew factor to your next Halloween party, these edible dirty q-tips are definitely the treat to bring.
What you’ll need:
Popeye candy sticks
1. Lay out some wax paper.
2. Push one marshmallow onto each side of the candy stick until it’s secure, but hasn’t gone all the way through.
3. Dip both ends into your caramel sauce and place onto the wax paper to set.
4. Serve them in a q-tip box for the added effect.
Hope you guys try these out!
