easy Valentine marshmallows

My itty and I ran into the grocery yesterday to grab a few things and I saw these huge Kraft marshmallows on sale for $.50 (all sizes and colors are on sale this week at Kroger)!! Yay!

My first thought was to make Valentine marshmallows and use them to decorate my boys’ placesettings Valentine’s Day morning. Then I thought of their poor teachers… and decided these might be a better treat in the evening. {wink}

These Valentine marshmallows are super simple. You’ll need Karo syrup, large Kraft marshmallows, sprinkles and a toothpick.

Just write your message in Karo and add sprinkles. The Karo is clear so all you will see are sprinkles! I used this technique on smaller marshmallows for my art party collection, when I made marshmallow paint cans.

 Did I mention…

because I really do! As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!
