I’ve been on a marshmallow pop kick lately and really, can you blame me, they are easy and yummy. As I was planning Nolan’s Dino Party I knew I would be making something fitting for the celebration but wanted to do a little more than just a marshmallow on a stick dunked in candy melts. I checked out Pinterest but didn’t find anything that looked easy or that I could easily adapt for his party.
My first plan was to use a tulip shaped cookie cutter to cut the marshmallows before dipping in the chocolate. I think a tulip shape resembles a dinosaur footprint don’t you? Well the marshmallows were too thick for my cookie cutter or the cookie cutter was too small, however you look at it-it didn’t work.
After a few trys and full belly I finally got the shape that I wanted. Here’s what I did:
Make cuts as shown. Cutting out two triangle shapes where the “toes” are. (Do dinosaurs have toes?) and cutting off the other two corners. The marshmallows are more rectangle-ish than square so I tried to lay each marshmallow down the same way before making any cuts so the footprints would look similar.
