Special Marshmallows

I don't know about your kids but mine love marshmallows.  There is just something about that squishy, sweet treat that delights most kids.  But let's face it, they are not "cute" or "adorable", they are a puff of white (or pink if you find the strawberry ones).  Now and then during certain holidays you can find shaped one (snowmen at Christmas) but for the most part they are plain, boring white puffs. 

I have done this for years for a special treat for my girls.  I sneak them into lunch boxes or bowls of cereal occasionally.  They "ohhhhh" and "ahhhhh" at them and gobble them down.  They are super easy to make and turn a plain boring puff into something special.

You are going to need:

Powdered Sugar
Small Cookie Cutter

Step One: Place cookie cutter in powdered sugar
Step Two: Position cookie cutter on top of marshmallow
Step Three: Press cookie cutter gently into marshmallow
Step Four: Slowly remove cutter from marshmallow

 Where you able to get all that?  Need me to do it again?  No, okay.  Seriously these are so easy and turn out so stinking cute!  They look adorable in a mug of hot cocoa or the insides (smaller hearts) made a great addition to a bowl of cereal or peanut butter sandwich.   

In no time at all you can assemble an army of cute marshmallows waiting to be bestowed upon a lucky child (or adult).  They are cute packaged in clear bags tied with a ribbon.  So put down the boring puffs of marshmallows and create something that will have all the kids in the neighborhood begging.
