Mini Tutorial: Colored Sugar-Coating Marshmallows
By: Alejandra Morin, owner and designer of The Marshmallow Studio

Items You’ll Need:
·       Water
·       Granulated Sugar
·       Food Gel Color (I like AmeriColor)
·       Toothpicks
·       Plastic Glove
·       Washcloth or Paper Towel
·       Spoon
·       Marshmallows


How to Color the Sugar:

Step 1: Put glove on
Step 2: Pour desired amount of coloring into sugar (Approx. 1 drop per cup of sugar)
Step 3: Pinch, pinch and pinch gel and sugar together. Make sure there are no dark spots

You are now ready to start coating some ‘mallows!


How to Sugar-Coat Marshmallows:


Step 1: Insert toothpick halfway into marshmallow


Step 2: Submerge marshmallow completely into water for 2 seconds
Step 3: Take marshmallow 



Step 3: Gently squeeze marshmallow dry with washcloth or paper towel using other hand


Step 4: Using spoon, drizzle sugar all over marshmallow. Make sure to not leave any areas white

Step 5: Leave marshmallow laying out to dry on tray or stick toothpick on foam for about 5 minutes
Step 6: Remove toothpick

Now wasn’t that easy?!?!
Ideas of what you can do with your Sugar-Coated Marshmallows:
·       Serve as dessert
·       Place a bunch in a plastic bag, tie a cute ribbon on it and give to someone as gift
·       Use as part of the d├ęcor at your next party
·       Eat as a snack
·       Make colorful s’mores
·       Insert a bunch into a skewer to make a ‘mallow pop

What will you be doing with your colored mallows? We’d LOVE to see what fun things you can all come up with. Share your photos and ideas with us on our Facebook page.
GIVEAWAY:

Hope you’ve enjoyed this fun mini tutorial and good luck :)
-Alejandra
