new year’s eve marshmallows

Here are some super-easy marshmallow decorating ideas for last-minute New Year’s Eve treats. Did I mention how super-easy and last-minute these are?

you will need:*

skewers and/or lollipop sticks

for glitter marshmallows:
bowl of water
sprinkles in preferred colors

for countdown and clock marshmallows:
edible pens

*I use Americolor gourmet writers. You can find substitutes in the craft store. You can also find a good variety of different colored sprinkles in the craft store. Choose fine sprinkles for an extra glittery effect.

to make the glittery marshmallows:
Skewer marshmallows or put on lollipop sticks. Working with one marshmallow at a time, very quickly dip a marshmallow into the water, remove immediately, blot on a paper towel and immediately sprinkle with the sprinkles to coat. Let dry.
to make the countdown or clock marshmallows:
For the countdown, skewer a few marshmallows. Simply write the countdown with the edible pens. For the clocks, skewer a marshmallow or put on a lollipop stick. Draw an almost-midnight clock face on the marshmallow.
