Make Marshmallow Snowflakes

Snow enforces winter's cold by trapping the earth's heat underground and reflecting away the warmth from the sun. In a play on that relationship, we've created a flurry of homemade marshmallow snowflakes floating in mugs of steaming hot cocoa. 

Materials

  • Rimmed baking sheet
  • Offset spatula
  • Snowflake cookie cutters

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Make a batch of Marshmallow Snowflakes.

  2. Step 2

    Spread the marshmallow mixture on a rimmed baking sheet with an offset spatula.

  3. Step 3

    Once the mixture is firm, use cookie cutters coated with nonstick cooking spray to punch out the flakes.

    I've made these a couple of times for my daughter who loves hot chocolate. didn't make any last year and got a BIG HINT this year for them. I don't have a snowflake cutter but I use what I have. I even put the "leavings" in with the nicely cut ones. I have no trouble making them.

    I tried this marshmallow recipie and it was very difficult to work with and turned out tough. Half of the marshmallow stuck to the mixing bowl. I was disappointed.

    Homemade marshmallows are amazing. They make great hostess gifts as well, or stocking stuffers. Try adding a drop of food coloring to make leaves for fall, hearts for valentines or witch hats for Halloween. The possibilities are endless. Instead of cornstarch try flour or a mix of flour and sugar to coat for storage.
