Expert Tips

Don’t have shape cookie cutters? Kids’ cutting tools (washed), pizza cutter or a knife can be used to cut your own shapes.

Use your sense of humor and imagination when decorating.

Flat, square marshmallows designed for s’mores are ideal for cutting out eyes and horns, and may be found in your grocer’s baking aisle. Otherwise, use large and mini marshmallows. A kitchen scissors or small, round cutters work great.
