No marshmallow recipe here. We just used jumbo marshmallows, and a rolling pin to make our fun Halloween Marshmallow Shapes! Here’s how:

No marshmallow recipe required! Just roll out the giant store bought ones, and start having fun making fun Halloween marshmallow shapes!

The DOWNER to using the standard 3 inch cookie cutters –

  • It will take some muscle to really stretch those marshmallows out big enough. I will tell you, that if you have MINI cookie cutters, then use those. I will be purchasing the mini Halloween cookie cutters, soon, and doing this again.

It definitely helps to let your marshmallows set out a couple of days to get a little stale. I know, that sounds weird, but it helps to have a little less elasticity in rolling. The staler the better! 😉

The BONUS to using 3 inch cookie cutters –

  • Easier to decorate with frosting 🙂
  • And, just look how cool it looks floating in hot cocoa!

I let my marshmallows set out for about 2 days, and couldn’t stand it any longer. I just had to have some fun with them! This is from a skeleton cookie cutter. I used gel icing to decorate.

It almost impossible to avoid getting some hot chocolate on the edges. The marshmallows just tip a little. Martha Stewart must do it with tweezers!

Perfection is not the point here. It’s having fun with one of my favorite holidays, and favorite kids!
