Marshmallow Favors

I overheard a corny conversation the other day in the candy aisle (where I spend a HUGE portion of my life, second only to tra-la-la-ing in the amazing cereal aisle), and here I found someone with a rather boisterous voice / opinion blatantly asserting the most bewildering statement that marshmallows are in fact of course, to quote: "...the most boring candy ever invented." Umm. Pray tell, what would cereal be without marshmallows??!!! I do believe I am going to scream-- arghhhh! Anyway, I'm sure this person meant the larger bagged, fluffy 'n pillowy, and I will agree, less interesting make and model of marshmallow-- BUT!!! This is where todays AEET post comes in, because yes, if marshmallows are of course the most boring candy ever invented, then I say it's time to make them exciting! It's time to ANIMALIZE your marshmallows-- and I don't mean how rock group KISS would do it-- I mean how McCall's did it in the 1974 recipe guide titled "Family-Style Cook Book." Awwww, aren't they cute? OMG who could ever eat Primrose the Piglet?!!!

What? Marshmallows are un-exciting candies?
Please do NOT let Gozer see this post!

Harry the Hippo is great. But all I can think is that these are just accidents waiting to happen with all those toothpicks!

They do look like they all already fell into tiger traps. Those toothpicks are like the pins in brand new men's shirts, like some kind of razor-in-the-apple Halloween prank. Would make it possible to toast them over tea candles in the house, though, what with all those tiny extra sticks, you can get really close to the fire.

Here's an idea, instead of toothpicks use Marshmallow Fluff, the kind that comes in jars, and use the fluff as edible glue to hold the creations together.

Marshmallow Fluff, Marshmallow Creme, whatever brand you can find should work OK, just remember the stuff is sticky so be prepared to lick your fingers to get the excess off your digits - its a tough job working with Marshmallow Fluff but someone has to do it ;)

they should just make edible toothpicks, formed from flavored sugar (like candy) or something, then all of your worries will be over.

Thanks for the comments, more food posts coming up all this month, cuzza Thanksgiving!

Edible toothpicks, darn, I didn't think of the nest best thing until you mentioned edible toothpicks, thin pretzel sticks would do the trick and no one gets hurt eating the whole creation.

Oops! Did I just give away my million dollar idea??
