I am busy working on my Project One for Camp Loopy! I’m using a new indie line that we have arriving soon (Hedgehog Fibres – woohoo!) and loving the way it is knitting up. I’m making the Ananke Shawl/Scarf and can see making more of these with some of my multi-color fingering weight skeins. It’s a quick and easy pattern, and not so fussy that a mixed colorway mushes up the pattern. I love patterns that look good in multi-colors.
Of course all of this intensive knitting calls for some snacks, right? We can’t have you fainting from hunger while you’re working on your projects. I saw this idea on Pinterest awhile back and tried it out this week. Yum. And easy! It would be fun to make with your kids or your friends.
Melt the chocolate until it’s free of lumps. Insert the stick into the end of your marshmallow, pushing it up about halfway into the marshmallow. Don’t pop it through the end or your marshmallow will slowly shimmy on down the stick!
Dip the marshmallow into the chocolate, all the way down the side. While the chocolate is still warm, roll the marshmallow in the graham cracker crumbs. Be sure to dip the top in the crumbs, too.
Put the stick in a coffee mug so the chocolate can firm up for a few minutes, then you can lay them flat on a cookie sheet. Store in a covered container.
How are you coming along on your Camp project? (If you didn’t join, it’s not too late. Hop in!) I hope to finish mine up over the weekend. If you need a quick and cute project idea, check out Wendy’s new As You Like It Scarf pattern, which is free on Ravelry. She whipped this up for her Camp Loopy project, and now you can, too!
