Cut 20 small strips of licorice and set aside. These will be your fuses. Then use a knife to cut small slits in the bottom and top of regular sized marshmallows and push a colorful straw through the bottom.

Melt red candy melts in microwave until smooth. I usually start with a minute, then stir. After that, I microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until candy is completely melted.

Dip marshmallows in red chocolate, covering completely.

Quickly, before chocolate hardens, add sprinkles around the bottom of the marshmallow and insert a piece of licorice in the top.
