Marshmallows With My Name Written All Over Them


Ok, my name isn't Avery, that's my daughter's name and this is her sweet simple treat. Simply cut out letters printed on regular printer paper, slice marshmallows in half, place the cut out letters on the sticky side of the marshmallow and push marshmallow into a tub of colored sugar. Peel off the paper cut-out letter and viola, custom marshmallows.  I'm think of making these as baby shower favors for an up coming baby shower.
Custom marshmallows

Oh, I wish I owned a Silhouette, but I don't.  It's actually not that hard to cut out the letters.  Only took 10 minutes.
I printed a couple of different font sizes because I wasn't sure how big it needed to be. Arial Black 72 font worked perfectly.

Cut marshmallows, stick letter on cut side (sticky side), then dip in sugar.

Dipped on left, then remove cut-out letter.

Treats for my sweet.

  7. Fabulous idea! =) I'm wondering if you could fill in the sticky part where the letter was in regular white sugar...

    (& if that pic is of Avery, she is adorable!)

  10. Thank you for the comment regarding my banner and latest post. I thought it might be fun to change things up for Halloween. Maybe this is the start of a new holiday trend for Her Little Mister.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

  40. Silly question... What's the secret to cutting the marshmallows without squishing them to smithereens?

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's clear, you are a genius! Love your blog.

  42. TabiDee-

    You just need a fairly sharp kitchen knife to cut the marshmallows. They are actually pretty resilient and spring back into shape pretty easily.

  49. Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
