Magical Marshmallow Treats

After finding a bag full of colorful marshmallow bits, I knew we had to make these Magical Marshmallow treats! My kids love helping measure the cereal and decorating with the sprinkles! We made these for St Patrick’s day and paired it with a white-hot chocolate that was dyed green. This colorful goodie is perfect for all occasions. A must have for my daughter when she’s pretending to be a Unicorn.
