Marshmallow Bottles for a Baby Shower

I was recently asked to participate in a virtual baby shower! Have you ever been to one? Well, not really, but participated? I love the idea…and today, this virtual shower is for Meaghan, aka The Decorated Cookie. She is mega-talented and even has a book, Sugarlicious. She was the original one who made THESE melting snowman cookies. She also has an Edible Crafts Blog over at Craft Gossip. This is her second child and all I have to say is, I’m jealous of her kids! They are surrounded by 24-7 cuteness.

To help in the sweet celebration I made Marshmallow Baby Bottles.

Marshmallow Bottles for a Baby Shower

These are really simple to make and personalize!

I just used a tiny dab of Vanilla Candiquik to stack the marshmallows…

Then press a toothpick into the top marshmallow. This makes them easier to dip.

I transferred the Candiquik into a deep cup (a mug or deep bowl would work great). This makes it very simple to dip the stacked marshmallows in.

Immediately after coating the marshmallows, press a meltaway mint on top and sprinkle with sugar decors (do this over a bowl to eliminate waste and save yourself a mess of a cleanup).
