Turn plain marshmallows into an special last-minute treat for July 4th. They'll dress up your s'mores and they're a cinch to make, promise! It took me less than 30 minutes to dip-dye a whole bag of marshmallows. Another reason to make these: This cheap recipe costs less than $5 for over 3 dozen servings! All you'll need is 1 bag marshmallows and 1 package food coloring (like McCormick's Assorted Food Colors). How fun would these be on your July 4th dessert table? I love 'em! Here what you do...
RED, WHITE AND BLUE MARSHMALLOWS
MAKES: about 3 dozen
20 drops red food coloring
20 drops blue food coloring
1 bag large marshmallows
1. Put the red food coloring in a small bowl, add 1 teaspoon water and swirl to combine. Repeat with the blue food coloring in a separate small bowl.
2. Cover a work surface with aluminum foil; top with a piece of paper towel. Dip 1 side of the marshmallows in the red food coloring; let dry 10 minutes on the paper towel. Dip the other side of the marshmallows in the blue food coloring; let dry 10 minutes.
What do you think: Would you make these Red, White and Blue Marshmallows for you Fourth of July party? Speaking of which, how are you spending your holiday? I'd love to know! We're going to visit my family for some swimming, barbecuing, fire works and bocce—can't wait! xo Erin
