Transforming Peeps Yellow Marshmallow Bunnies--Pikachu and Despicable Me Minions

These minion marshmallows are made from a deconstructed yellow Peeps bunny.

I would definitely have to agree with these infinite words of wisdom. And marshmallow peeps are so easy to transform with edible food pens like Wilton's FoodWriters. The have such personality and can be really fun to play around with--especially because you get to eat them all at the end of the day!

Springtime Nail Polish Marshmallow Tootsie Rolls

Happy Spring everyone! Today was absolutely beautiful here in Cincinnati (high of 78+) and for the first time since last fall I was able to wear flip flops today. And not just any flip flops, but these beautiful Tory Burch flip flops my sister got me for my birthday that I'm absolutely obsessed with. What goes hand-in-hand with flip flops? Nail polish of course. Naturally, I had to paint my toes this morning since they would be on display, which seemed to fit perfectly with this cute summery treat.
I saw a version of these nail polish treats on Pinterest where the marshmallows were dipped in frosting and attached to the Tootsie Roll with melted chocolate, which inspired me to see if I could make a simplified version. All you need is large marshmallows  Tootsie Rolls, sugar, and food coloring. How easy is that?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
These cupcakes were so easy to make and yet are still really cute. All you need is white chocolate, sprinkles (or sugar), and green frosting (and cupcakes of course!).
