Minnesotans will put anything on a stick.  Pickles, walleye, and deep-fried Twinkies have all be stuck on a stick.   Mac ‘n Cheese?  No problem.  Just batter balls of that stuff, fry them up and skewer them.  A few years ago when our Governor was running for re-election he even put pictures on himself on a stick.  It’s what we do.  So when I came across this post on Tastespotting I knew I had to try it.

I’ve always wanted to make homemade marshmallows.  It’s good to have goals, don’t you think?  Especially ones that involve sweets!  Both the fudge and the marshmallows were very easy to put together.  The hardest part was waiting for them to set up!  Yesterday I assembled the lollypops – just look at this loveliness…

I added some crushed candy canes to a few of them for some seasonal flair.  Eat as is or stir into some warm milk.  Or maybe make some homemade graham crackers (another goal!) and sandwich this between them for the ultimate s’more.  You will not be disappointed.
