Today’s DIY project is sponsored by Airheads.
Well folks, I have an exciting week planned for you! My birthday is on Friday and that means I am celebrating all week (duh!), so get ready for a whole lot of birthday projects starting tomorrow. But first! We can’t forget about the summer’s biggest, most patriotic holiday… July 4th! I can’t believe how quickly it’s coming up, but these edible pinwheels I crafted with Airheads certainly have me in the red, white and blue mood. Perfect for post-BBQ desserts, no!?
Psst.. I was lucky enough to get to try Airheads’ newest product, Airheads Bites, for this project! Bite size airheads… well, I don’t mind if I do!
Heat an Airhead in the microwave for about eight seconds and roll it into a ball. Flat the ball into a thin circle using your rolling pin. Cut off the circles round edges to form a square.
Use your knife to cut slits from each corner to about a half inch from the center of the square. Take one of the new “points” and fold it into the center, pressing it to secure. Repeat this with alternating points to form your pinwheel.
Take one of your airheads bites and carefully “carve” away some of the outer coating on the back of the Airhead Bite. This will allow it to stick to the pinwheel. Roll up a piece of your Airhead scraps and push it into the hole you made in the Bite.
Firmly press the Bite into the pinwheel to secure it. Flip over your pinwheel and lay your lollipop stick on the back. Take another scrap piece of your Airhead and press it over top of the pinwheel, securing it to the pinwheel.
Pop them in cupcakes or other treats and serve at your big Fourth of July bash (or any other summer party)!
