How to Make Marshmallow Flowers
You will need:
white large marshmallows
colored large marshmallows (they make whole bags of the pink strawberry ones)
cellophane bags and ribbon
The flowers look the fullest with six colored marshmallows. Take a toothpick and pierce six colored marshmallows on their side. Pierce the white, center marshmallow with the toothpicks attached to the colored marshmallows. Take the skewers and poke the bottom of your flower, giving it a stem. I have found the stem works best when you pierce both the color marshmallow and the center one. Put the marshmallow flower into a cellophane bag and tie with ribbon just under the flower.
I have used these favors at an adult party and a kids party and they were hits both times. Too bad my husband doesn't eat sugar, I might be tempted to make him a bouquet of marshmallow flowers. :)
