You first make the marshmallows but during the boil sugar/water part – you add coloring. I dumped A LOT of red in mine.
Then you recruit help once the mallows are set, sugar up the counter and hand out some cookie cutters.
As you can see my very RED simple sugar turned a nice pink once all was said and done. Perfect for Valentines Day.
We used: heart, star, crown, flower and clover shaped cookie cutters. Our cookie cutters weren’t quite as deep as the marshmallows so it took some arm strength to push it all the way through – after it got tiring for the kids I went to just making 1 inch squares.
I think about these floating in hot cocoa and I smile without knowing it. Pink marshmallows, it’s the little things.
May your Saint Valentines Day be just a little cheerier.
