Who knew you could dye marshmallows? Well apparently not me until now! This is a super fun and easy treat for the kids to make too. I was looking around the marshmallow section in the grocery store and man are there so many different kinds of marshmallows these days. Some are already dipped just add a stick and they can be great party treats!
The ones I used were the large thin rectangular S’more version. I have these super cute mini cookie cutters and the S’more marshmallows are the perfect size to cut out the mini shapes. The S’more Mallows are a Limited Edition so grab some while you can. Then just dye them, let them dry and you a yummy colorful treat. Here’s how to make them~
Spring Shapes Dip Dyed Marshmallows
- Kraft Jet-Puffed S’more Mallows
- McCormick’s “Neon” Food Color/Egg Dye
- Wilton’s Spring Mini Cookie Cutters
Cut the shapes out of the marshmallows with the mini cookie cutters. Press cutter down in the center of the marshmallow and gently wiggle to cut all the way through. Gently pull the marshmallow out of the cutter.
In small bowls, fill with water (around a 1/4 cup), and mix 3-6 drops of each color. Adjust the drops to make the colors lighter or darker. Soak in water for 1 minute and remove marshmallow and lay on a cooling rack to dry and enjoy!
So fun and a great way to keep the kids busy on boring days. This is a great alternative to dying Easter eggs as well.
