This treat is so simple to make and can be easily changed to match your party decor–all at the last minute, too! For my Mother’s Day Brunch , I served them two at a time in little cupcake liners on a custom-made paper cake stand!

This little sugar dipped marshmallows idea came to me while I hunted for coconut cupcakes of all things. I was trying to complete the Mother’s Day Party post without having to bake a huge batch of cupcakes (I was so short on time!) Looking around Whole Foods, white, white, white . . . my eyes landed the marshmallows, yum! which, I have to admit, I love! It’s on my list to make a batch of home made marshmallows, like these lovelies from Faux Martha. hmmm . . . .

But, no! I couldn’t stop . . . must execute party and move on! Homemade marshmallows another day. Sugar dipped marshmallows, albeit store bought, fit the bill for now and turned out to be a beautiful way to fill in a party table in a customized and decadent way.
