Marshmallow Pumpkins

Mommy Craft

I am re-dating this post to match pumpkin week, but I made these for Gracie's fall snack not-a-party at school on 10/29.

I had originally thought about leaf cookies, but when I stumbled on this idea from another craft blog, I just had to do it.

They were a HUGE hit as well!

For this snack you will need:
  • Marshmallows
  • Candy sticks (check the cake decorating isle)
  • Orange candy melts (you could use white and then color with food coloring after it is melted)
  • Green thin ribbon
  • Wax Paper
This was the most simple snack.

Get all of your supplies out and ready. Put the candy sticks in the center of your marshmallows and line them up in rows on wax paper.

Next, follow the instructions on your candy melts. I melted a few in a microwaveable bowl for 30 seconds at a time until the melted candy was smooth.

Dip your marshmallow in the melted candy and use a butter knife to evenly spread the candy coating all over the marshmallow including the top and bottom.

Put your finished pumpkin on the wax paper and move to the next one.

You will see that the coating doesn't take long to harden and get a pretty color to it.

When your pumpkins are all done and you have let them harden; add a green ribbon for the vine.
