Marshmallow Flower Bouquet!

My Aunt Lorraine makes amazing desserts.  They taste delicious and look beautiful.  The kids LOVED the marshmallow treats she made for Easter.  I asked her if I could take a picture and post.

This is what she did:

  1. Place marshmallows on a large stick (you can find the white ones she used in the baking aisle). 
  2. Dip the marshmallows in water (wipe of excess water - not dripping, on a paper towel). 
  3. Dip the damp marshamallow into different colors of sprinkles.
  4. Punch hole into a mini cupcake liner and move it close to the marshmallows.
  5. Place floral styrofoam into a decorative pot.
  6. Push the sticks into place.
  7. Fill in the spaces with Easter grass.
  8. My aunt tied a a pretty ribbon around the pot to finish the look.
You can always make your own sprinkles:  bake sugar mixed with food coloring in the oven (muffin tin)  for about 5 min at 350 degrees.  Check out the post on Love Monster Marshmallows for complete directions.

These were a perfect treat for Easter but I think it would be adorable for any type of family gathering or shower.  Thanks Aunt Lorraine!
