Monogram Marshmallow Easter Eggs
What a week this has been! I am slightly shocked that Easter is just days away. This whole time flying by thing is real, my friends. Oh, so real.
Last week, Jamie and I were traveling to speak at some food blogging conferences to speak about making food videos (which I’m so into!). We spent the beginning of the week in Austin, which was a pretty cool place and had the most amazing weather! Sunshine never felt so good! On Thursday, we were supposed to travel from Austin to Charleston via Atlanta to speak at a second conference. Well, Atlanta weather had different plans for us and after a series of flight delays and cancellations, we missed the conference and ended up having to just come home. It was disappointing, but we were just so thankful that we didn’t get stuck at an airport and we realize it could have been so much worse.
Now that I’m home, I’m realizing just how close to Easter we are and just how much I have not been preparing. Luckily, my family is pretty low key and we do our usual pot luck style holiday get together which I adore. I’m going to be in charge of deviled eggs but I haven’t decided which kind, yet! What should I make? Herbed Deviled Eggs, Nicoise Deviled Eggs, Spinach Bacon Deviled Eggs, Fig Deviled Eggs, Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs, or the classic My Deviled Eggs?
SO many choices and clearly I have a deviled egg obsession <3
One egg that I know will be gracing our Easter Table are these totally adorable and borderline embarrassingly easy Monogram Marshmallow Easter Eggs. They use my very favorite Campfire® Eggswirlers! You might recognize these fruity, swirled egg shaped marshmallows from years past (Fruity Mallow Cups, No Bake Marshmallow Cheesecakes, Marshmallow Easter Eggs).
The texture of these marshmallows are like pillows, they are so soft! And the flavors are hands down, my favorite. The orange tastes like a legitimate creamsicle and I am super into it.
This year, I wanted to play around with dipping them in vanilla candy coat, similar to when I made my Marshmallow Easter Eggs. The flavor of the vanilla candy coat is a great compliment to the fruity marshmallows, they’re amazing! Instead of decorating them like little Easter eggs, this year I’m all about the sprinkles! I put them together with a simple place setting to create a quick and easy table decoration.
Here are the ingredients and supplies you’ll need:
- Campfire® Eggswirlers Marshmallows
- Vanilla Candy Coating
- Pastel sprinkles
- Campfire® mini marshmallows
- flaked coconut
- green food coloring
- berry baskets or shallow dishes
I found these ceramic berry baskets at my grocery store in the Easter decoration isle, but you can use any shallow white dish (or wooden basket) that you like. I filled the baskets with mini marshmallows to create a soft bed for the coconut “Easter grass”.
To make the green coconut “Easter grass” all you have to do is place coconut in a zip top bag, add a few drops of green food coloring, close the bag and shake until the food coloring distributes and turns green. Sprinkle the green coconut over the marshmallows and top with a Monogram Marshmallow Easter Egg.
Super simple plus, everything is edible!
