MARSHMALLOW FLOWER POPS BOUQUET– A DIY TUTORIAL

by Alejandra Morin
Makes 1 Bouquet (3 flower pops)

marshmallow mother's day tutorial ingredients:

INGREDIENTS:

– 15 Regular pink marshmallows
– 3 Regular white marshmallows
– 3 Bamboo skewers
– Edible glitter (commonly known as disco dust)
– Royal Icing (RI) in Decorating Bag. I used a decorating tip #5 but you may also just snip off the tip of the bag to create a little whole and use it that way
– Cup of water
– Baking pan
– Decorative ribbon
– 4” Flower pot
– Small floral foam block
– Green tissue paper

*****

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR POPS:

1. Whip up your royal icing into a frosting-like consistency, bag it and set it aside

2. Soak skewers in water for 5 minutes

3. Place one white marshmallow on the baking pan with five pink ones around it to form a flower
4. Hold skewer right above it with tip of skewer halfway up the top pink marshmallow
5. Place finger tips right below the white marshmallow to measure how far you need to push that piece
6. Insert skewer through the side of the white marshmallow and push down to your finger tips
7. Insert skewer halfway up the side of the pink marshmallow. Both marshmallows should be touching each other and the tip of the skewer should not be visible on top
8. Lay skewer down on baking pan

To make a larger bouquet simply make more pops and use a bigger flower pot. The bigger the bouquet the bigger the surprise will be!

Note: If you’re making these ahead of time, to maintain freshness, wrap each pop in a cellophane bag and tie with a twist tie underneath the ribbon. Marshmallow pops can be enjoyed up to six months later. They also may be stored for keepsake in a cool, dry place forever without deteriorating. Enjoy!

      They are Jet-Puffed marshmallows and they are available in this size in pink, white, or swirl tan or brown colors. Pastel marshmallows are only available in mini size
