Rosanna Pansino's Candy Heart Lollipops Recipe


Posted on

Rosanna Pansino knows the key to a good party: sweets, sweets and more sweets.

When the star of YouTube’s Nerdy Nummies stopped by the PEOPLE office for a Facebook Live video, she revealed her go-to theme for a get together. “I don’t know if this is corny. but I do cookie decorating parties and I do cake pop decorating parties,” she says. To make the activity even simpler, Pansino uses the melting pot from her new line of bakeware.

She suggests melting chocolate or different flavors of candy melts in the pot, setting out cookies, marshmallow rice cereal treats, and fresh strawberries (one of her “guilty pleasures” when they’re chocolate-coated) and then letting your guests “dip, dip, dip!”
