Here's a quick run down of everything you will need. Either parchment paper or wax paper, red candy melts (I used Wilton), regular marshmallows, skewer, lollipop sticks, bags and twist ties.
Start by melting the melt per instructions. Then dip one third of the marshmallow into the melted candy and place onto wax paper. Let harden.
Once dry you will turn them over and dip the other side into the candy melts, leaving a center white portion. Let these dry.
While these are drying you will need to roll out a brim for your hat. To do this cut a marshmallow in half. I found it was easier to use scissors to do this. Then you will use a rolling pin to flatten the marshmallow. Be sure to place the cut side down onto the parchment paper or your rolling pin will become messy very quickly.
After everything has dried and your brims are rolled out you are ready to assemble your hats. place the sticky side of the rolled marshmallow against the hat. Using a skewer poke a hole through the brim and into the hat. Pull skewer out and replace with lollipop stick. Then wrap in candy bag and close with a twist tie. Then you have your Cat In The Hat hat.
Enjoy your treats and remember....
"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child."
So sit back, enjoy your treats and a little of Dr. Seuss reading. I don't know about you but I still love reading his books and my kids do too.
Happy Cooking and Reading!!!
