Total time: 20 minutes
Yield: 5 Servings
Knife to Cut The Marshmallows
Small dish of Water
1) Cut a jumbo marshmallow in half and place it cut side down on a cookie, so it sticks. Dab a little bit of water onto it first, if it doesn’t feel very sticky.
2) Cut a medium marshmallow in half and place it cut side down towards the bottom of the jumbo marshmallow. OK to add a dab of water, if it needs a little bit of help sticking. .
3) Dab a tiny bit of water on the marshmallows where you want the candy eyes and M&M nose to be, so it gets sticky. Place the eyes and nose in position.
4) Slice a thin layer off of the ends of the mini marshmallows, so that the end is sticky. Then, stick the ears in place.
5) Let the cookies sit for a few minutes and make sure everything is stuck together.
