Dr. Seuss’s birthday was the other day. The elementary school always has a “wear your pajamas to school” day on his birthday. I guess the two go together because you think of cuddling up in bed with Mom or Dad and reading a Dr. Seuss book? Anyway, we love Dr. Seuss. So, when I saw an adorable Cat in the Hat treat at the Dollhouse Bake Shoppe I had to give it a whirl.

AAahhh! The cuteness! I know!

Time would not allow me to experiment with the green eggs and ham. But really, how cute?!

Here is our version of the Cat in the Hat goodies…

What you need:

bowl of water

bowl of red sugar

marshmallows

toothpicks

The original recipe used large marshmallows and a lollipop stick. We only had mini marshmallows and toothpicks in the house. It was a spur of the moment experiment.

1. Flatten one marshmallow and thread it on to the toothpick.

2. Dip the second marshmallow in the bowl of water up to the middle of the marshmallow.

3. Dip the wet marshmallow in the red sugar.

4. Slide the marshmallow onto the toothpick with the red side touching the flattened marshmallow.

5. Repeat steps 2-4 for third marshmallow.

OH, the cuteness!!!

We used a block of styrofoam to hold our little hats. They would be great as cupcake toppers!


We had to jazz up the background a little…

Be sure to make enough to share with your family and friends.

This was a fun, fast, and easy project. Thanks, Dollhouse Bake Shoppe for sharing your creativity.
