In the past years, I’ve made tons of recipes, crafts and DIY tutorials for KRAFT JET-PUFFED Marshmallows. I’ve done projects from crazy-elaborate marshmallow showpieces, to simple recipes to cupcake toppers and I wanted to switch things up a little for 2016. This year I’ll be showing you how to make utilize marshmallows to make all kinds of fun treats that anyone can recreate. My goal is for you to have a blast and create memories with your family and friends with them.
First up in my series of DIYs are these super-cool
MARSHMALLOW & WHITE CHOCOLATE SNOWFLAKES.
*Top your hot cocoa mug with them.
*Turn these cuties into marshmallow pops.
*Pop these on top to decorate your yummy cupcakes with.
*Place them all over cake for a Winter wonderland themed cake.
*Perfect for Valentine’s Day grams – Wrap a few in a zip top bag and attach a tag saying “I melt for you” or “You make me melt”.
And I’m sure there are many more cool ways you can come up with too
To make these fun Snowflakes you’ll need:
*A handful of Large Jet-Puffed Marshmallows
*A bar of Baker’s White Chocolate
*Sanding sugar in different shades of blue and white
*A Plastic piping bag
*Kitchen shears or food-only scissors
Making these Marshmallow Snowflakes couldn’t be easier!
Make sure you’re using sparkly sanding sugar for these. If you use bigger or smaller sugar crystals (including sprinkles) it’ll be harder to see the snowflake pattern.
You know my rule…. always dip scissors in water before cutting marshmallows!!
Here you’ll be cutting the marshmallows in half right in the center to create 2 thinner rounds out of one.
Snap off a few pieces of white chocolate from the bar and put them in a piping bag.
You’ll microwave the chocolate right in the bag for about a minute and half. Take out every 30 second to squeeze around with fingers. You want to make sure you don’t burn the chocolate!!
After chocolate is all nice and melted, you’ll snip off a tiny little piece off of the tip.
Pipe snowflake shapes right onto marshmallows.
Immediately after, GENTLY dip snowflake into sugar.
DO NOT PRESS marshmallow hard into sugar or you’ll ruin your snowflake.
Lift and set aside to harden.
Repeat for all others.
Have fun with these. Play around with colors and patterns.
I got a little creative and made tiny mini snowflakes with Mini Marshmallows.
Wouldn’t these be absolutely perfect for a Frozen party? Or maybe a fabulous hot cocoa station? Ooooh and as a fun indoor activity for the kids when the weather is frightful outside.
How will you be enjoying these Marshmallow & White Chocolate Snowflakes?
