More Marshmallow Fun with “Conversation Marshmallows” (tutorial)

After seeing all those cute, omnipresent (but unpalatable) conversation hearts around Valentine’s Day, I was inspired to make some “conversation marshmallows”!

I made the same marshmallow recipe as when I made the marshmallow s’mores, but instead of cutting them into 1″ squares with a pizza cutter, I used a bunch of mini cookie cutters (lightly oil first so that they don’t stick):

You’ll be left with a lot of cute little shapes, which can be stored up to three weeks in an airtight container:

Then I dug up some mini alphabet letter stamps and some food coloring (I used Wilton’s gel food coloring).  I used a clean brush to paint on the surface of the stamp, and stamped the letters onto the marshmallows:

And this is the result!!

Slip these into your cup of hot chocolate or eat alone!

Update:  If you are planning to do this  project, I would pain the letters on right before serving. Due to the porous nature of the marshmallows, the letters will bleed if not consumed within the next few hours.

Holy Cuteness! I wish I would have found this before Spring, but I’m sure there will be some gloomy days to try it out.

I love this. I want to incorporate the marshmallows in my wedding but I wasn’t able to open up your how to make marshmallow recipe link :( Would you be able to email that to me?
