Old-Fashioned Candy "Milkshakes".
These were so much fun to make and, if you don't super glue M&Ms to yourself and/or buy the wrong size foam ball the first time around, can be put together in less than ten minutes. I'm serious! They're perfect for Valentine's Day, birthday parties, last-minute festive centerpieces or gift-giving... or for absolutely no reason at all.
Let's do this!
Old-Fashioned Candy "Milkshakes"
An ice cream sundae glass
1 (4-inch, 4 7/8-inch, or 5-inch) white foam ball, cut in half with a sharp knife
Glue dots or a hot glue gun
Salt water taffy
1 red heart-shaped or round candy (like milk chocolate Lindt balls) for the "cherry" on top
Fill ice cream glass with M&Ms. Eat a handful. You deserve it.
Cut foam ball in half. Set on top, securing to the rim using glue dots or a hot glue gun if you must.
I really do recommend using glue dots for a less messy, super easy and low-stress experience. My first attempt at making these ended up with liquid glue dripping into the M&Ms and it was awkward for everybody. I found these clear adhesive 3D dots at Michael's...
And they pretty much saved my life.
See? Four dots. That's all you need. No need to go bananas here.
Plop the fake ice cream on top. Press down lightly to anchor it to the glass.
Gently poke your straw through the foam (P.S. Heart-shaped straws. Walmart. $.97)...
It's magic, how crafty you are.
Make someone's day this Valentine's weekend with a candy milkshake... then celebrate with a real milkshake. It's the best thing to do in these situations
