The best part about Halloween for kids, besides the candy, is spending time with their friends and doing something out of the ordinary. Getting all dressed up, giggling at each other’s costumes, checking out what candy they received and reliving the night over and over in their little heads until next year. My kitchen helper and I invited one of his favorite classmates over to decorate homemade vanilla marshmallows into halloween approved treats. Something unexpected, enjoyable to eat and giggle throughout the process.
Homemade halloween marshmallow treats mix up quickly, it’s just a short wait for them to set up so I recommend making the small batch of marshmallows the morning of your playdate. Depending on the age of your kitchen helper you might want to cut out the shapes right before they arrive or have them involved. Once the shapes are cut, dust off the excess powdered sugar and use food color marks (like Wilton Food Writer ) to decorate. So have fun, make memories and enjoy a few sweet treats along the way.
