What fun! The kids can help with this. Pep up your hot chocolate, coffee, apple cider, etc. with marshmallow swizzle sticks! You can change the colors to suit the occasion! Adapted from BH&G magazine(December 2008).

This are cute as a button. I wracked my brain, trying to think of a more creative way for me to use them. I came up with decorating cupcakes! I made different colored marshmallows (red, blue, mixed and sprinkles) and anchored them to cupcakes with a pretzel stick. I would do the anchoring part close to serving time, as the pretzels get soggy pretty quickly. Thanks for sharing a great recipe, Sharon!
