Copycat Tigger Tails

hundred acre recipe tigger tails winnie the pooh

I've always had a soft spot for Winnie the Pooh, so when Disney announced that they were making a live action movie I was beyond excited. When the trailer was released, I bawled my eyes out the minute Pooh spoke. Hearing his voice triggered tears of joy. I made sure to bring lots of tissues to the theater but I also wanted to bring a special treat to get me through the movie. That's when Tigger came to the rescue! 

These Tigger Tails are ooey gooey deliciousness on a stick. And they're so easy to make! Arrange four marshmallows on a long lollipop or treat stick with the flat ends facing you. I staggered my marshmallows to make it look more like a tail. Spoon melted caramel over marshmallows and place on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Once the caramel hardens, spoon melted candy melts over the tails. Let the candy melts dry completely and drizzle melted semisweet chocolate over each tail. That's it!
