First, this recipe calls for marshmallows. You can use store-bought if you like, but If you prefer to make your own- follow the marshmallow recipe here, then simply cut the marshmallows out using a tiny gingerbread man cookie cutter, you can make them light brown by adding 2 Tbs Cocoa to the mixture)
- Candy Canes
- Edible Writing Pens
These are so simple, the kids will enjoy creating them.
Step #1: Break off the hook end of the candy cane.
Step #2: Insert it into a marshmallow.
Step #3: Using the edible pens (I prefer Americolor Gourmet Writers) add designs.
Some ideas are: Snowflakes, steaming mugs of cocoa, candy
To add designs using colored sprinkles You'll need water, sprinkles and fine paintbrush.
"Paint" the design of your choice onto the marshmallow with water and roll in colored sprinkles.
You'll need to work fast as the water will evaporate leaving gaps in your design.
