    "Paint" the design of your choice onto the marshmallow with water and roll in colored sprinkles.

    Some Tips:
    You'll need to work fast as the water will evaporate leaving gaps in your design.

      Adorable! I will try these, along with the home made cocoa. It would be fun to use cherry sticks also for a cherry cocoa treat. Neat!

      Making these today! I'm using Hershey's chocolate mint candy canes, I almost got carmel and vanilla and chocolate and vanilla marshmallows, but I thought the candy canes were enough flavoring! With Strawberry Marshmallows, and Pumpkin shaped ones, these aren't just limited to Christmas! Thanks for sharing!
