  • 1. 1 Bowl of Pretzel sticks
  • 2. 1 cup of Merckens melting pink wafers
  • 3. 1/2 cup of Smarties
  • 4. I half cup of Rainbow mini marshmallows.
  • 5. 1/3 cup of Cheerios


  • Melt the Merckens melting pink wafers in the microwave until they are liquid. Don't leave these too long or they start to get hard instead of liquid.
  • In a bowl add Pretzel sticks (it's okay f they get crushed a bit. The longest ones are a bit too hard to coat.)
  • Add the Cheerios and the marshmallows and stir all the dry ingredients into the melted liquid fast before it starts to harden. Add the Smarties at end and stir a bit more. Make sure these are well coated. You may still need to break a couple of the pretzel sticks to make them take shape properly.
  • Drop them each onto a cookie sheet.
  • Using a large Tablespoon press them into shape and then let cool.
