Looking for a fabulous way to customize a party with a color-coordinated treat? Try these beautiful and tasty sugar dipped marshmallows. These natural marshmallows have a more “candy” like taste and have better ingredients than your typical “jet-puffed” variety. Add some simple colored decorating sugar, and voila!
This treat is so simple to make and can be easily changed to match your party decor–all at the last minute, too! For my Mother’s Day Brunch , I served them two at a time in little cupcake liners on a custom-made paper cake stand!
This little sugar dipped marshmallows idea came to me while I hunted for coconut cupcakes of all things. I was trying to complete the Mother’s Day Party post without having to bake a huge batch of cupcakes (I was so short on time!) Looking around Whole Foods, white, white, white . . . my eyes landed the marshmallows, yum! which, I have to admit, I love! It’s on my list to make a batch of home made marshmallows, like these lovelies from Faux Martha. hmmm . . . .
But, no! I couldn’t stop . . . must execute party and move on! Homemade marshmallows another day. Sugar dipped marshmallows, albeit store bought, fit the bill for now and turned out to be a beautiful way to fill in a party table in a customized and decadent way.

TIP: Split sugar into a couple of containers as the sugar starts to stick in clumps over time.
Easier than pie:
:: Dip marshmallow in water at an angle.
:: Dip marshmallow in sugar, rolling a bit to get sugar to stick to dipped part.
:: Let dry. Sugar will adhere to marshmallow.
:: Place sugar dipped marshmallows in liners two at a time.
:: Enjoy! I know my kiddos did!
