36Regular Sized Marshmallows
Melt candy melts in a glass microwave safe bowl on 50% power for 30 seconds and then continue to microwave on 50% power in 15-second intervals until completely melted, stirring in between. If the chocolate is too thick, mix in a tsp of shortening to thin out. (repeat if necessary)
Add three marshmallows to each straw.

Once the chocolate hardens, stick a toothpick in the top to create a small hole. Add a thin piece of black licorice on the top for the fuse.
