These yummy chocolate leprechaun hats caught my eye while I was looking for treats to make with some leftover marshmallows for Saint Patrick's Day.
After sampling the cookies and marshmallows for freshness, B is ready to work. Since B turned three, everything now comes in threes. B decides to make three hats. First, placing three cookies on the plate and then three marshmallows on top. I decide to make three of my own. In all the excitement I initially forget the wax paper, but am able to slip it in later.
Next, we load up the bowl with chocolate. B checks the marshmallows again. Still fresh. One could use a double broiler to melt the morsels, but we opt for the preschool-friendly microwave. I burn the first batch of chocolate (2 minutes is too long!). In a pinch I grab a mug, which actually works out better for little hands!
