Marshmallow Christmas Ornaments!

It's time to make the Christmas Ornaments!
..and shop, and bake, and decorate...
So I wanted to create something cute & fun, but it also had to be easy. I love easy :o)
Mini candy canes, mini marshmallows, regular size marshmallows, white dipping chocolate & sprinkles are all you need.
 I use Ghirardelli dipping chocolate, but candy melts (in any color or flavor) would also work just as well.
 My marshmallows today are strawberry...yum!
 I've always enjoyed playing with my food..especially candy.
 Turn the regular size marshmallow on its side, then place the mini on top. Slowly press the tip of the candy cane into the mini and through almost to the bottom of the larger marshmallow.
And there you have cute already!
 getting ready to dip...
There are no pictures of the candy being dipped! I 
was really into the process and FORGOT :o)
As I dip each ornament, I give it a few seconds to make sure the chocolate is finished dripping. Then gently place it on a wax lined pan to set.
I LOVE these Wilton sprinkles!
I crushed up a candy cane to decorate this one.
This would be fun with the kids too..
I took a LOT of pictures..
I really did!
Maybe too many?
Do you all take lots of pics too? ..or is it just me?!
These would also be cute as party table place cards.
 Just pipe a name or initial on the dipped marshmallow.
Or as a cute small gift, place an ornament in a small cello bag and tie with a pretty ribbon.
Christmas is only two weeks away, but you still have plenty of time to make these :o)
Wishing you Christmas Joy 
and Happy Creating
Sugartown Sweets!


  1. These look so pretty and sweet. I especially like the one with the tiny silver balls.

  2. These are so cute and, unlike most of your projects, doable by the baby sistah (me!). Love them!

  3. Absolutely fantabulous!!! My 2 favorite flavors- peppermint and chocolate! Yum!! :) StephIe
