MARSHMALLOW DREIDEL – A DIY TUTORIAL
by Nicolle of Libby Lane Press
– Hershey Kisses
– Thin Pretzel Sticks (easiest if you break them in half
– Blue Sugar Sprinkles
– White Frosting used as ‘glue’
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Using a thin layer of white frosting, coat all surfaces of the marshmallow
2. Roll the marshmallow in the blue sugar sprinkles
3. Break a thin pretzel rod in half and dip the broken end into the white frosting. Stick the frosting-dipped end into the flat side of the marshmallow to create the handle for the dreidel.
4. Holding the pretzel stick, roll the marshmallow in the sprinkles again to fully cover
5. Apply a small dab of white frosting to the Hershey Kiss and affix to the other flat side of the marshmallow to create the ‘spinner’.
