One of our favorite Dr. Suess books is One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and there are so many fun things to do with the book, including our easy marshmallow pops!

Ingredients for Dr Seuss Day Snacks
- Large Marshmallows
- Lollipop Sticks
- Blue Candy Melts
- Multi Colored Fish Crackers
How to Make Easy Dr Seuss Day Snacks
- Stick a lollipop stick through a marshmallow for each pop you’ll be making.
- Melt the blue candy melts according to package directions. (You can also use white chocolate or vanilla almond bark and gel food coloring to create blue chocolate.)
- Dip each marshmallow in the candy melts until fully coated then tap on the side of the bowl to remove excess. Allow to harden.
- Meanwhile, separate the goldfish by color. Place some of the lighter orange fish in a ziplock bag and crush.
- Paint a line of blue candy melts along the bottom of a marshmallow (I used a spoon to do this) and sprinkle crushed goldfish along it to make it look like sand.
- Use a toothpick to add a dab of blue candy melts to the back of different colored goldfish and affix two of them to the front of each marshmallow pop.
- Place upright in a piece of foam to allow to harden completely.
Just a warning that reading One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish might lead to your kids wanting to read more Dr. Seuss books and make more Dr Seuss Day snacks! (For Weston, it also leads to wanting to read more books about fish!)
