Adorable Valentine Marshmallow Treats (Gift Bag Idea)
What You Will Need
- 1 package regular-sized marshmallows
- 1 container vanilla frosting
- Red food coloring
- Valentine colored paper straws*
- Valentine sprinkles*
- Wax or parchment paper
- Valentine treat bags*
How To Make Them
First, put half of the container of frosting in a microwaveable-safe bowl. Heat it for about 15-20 seconds. You want it the consistency of melted chocolate so you can easily dip the marshmallows.
Once the frosting is melted, mix in a few drops of red food coloring.
Now, it is dippin’ time!
Put a valentine straw in the middle of a marshmallow and dip it in the frosting.
Let all the excess frosting drip off.
Now, dip the end of the marshmallow in the valentine sprinkles.
Once you have the bottom of the marshmallow full of sprinkles, set it on wax or parchment paper.
Once the frosting is set, put them in valentine-themed treat bags.
Heart Meringue Cookies
4 egg whites
2 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
pink gel food coloring (if you want them to be pink!)
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy using an electric mixer. Sprinkle in sugar a little at a time, while continuing to whip at medium speed. Add a tiny drop of food coloring if using. When the mixture becomes stiff and shiny stop mixing, and transfer the mixture to a large pastry bag. Pipe the meringue out onto the prepared baking sheet using a large round tip or star tip in a heart shape.
Place the meringues in the oven and place a wooden spoon handle in the door to keep it from closing all the way. Bake for 2 1/2 hours, or until the meringues are dry, and can easily be removed from the pan. Allow cookies to cool completely before storing in an airtight container at room temperature.
