I love easy shortcuts for pretty treats, like the whipped topping marshmallows or mini apple dumplings. Recently I stumbled upon this simple way to make the classic Valentines Day treat, petit fours. Instead of hours slaving over a cake and cutting it into cylinder shape, try making them from dipped marshmallows instead!
I’m a big fan of using Airheads candy to decorate instead of fondant or icing (remember the mitten cookies and pendant banner?) and so I partnered with them to decorate my cute marshmallow petit fours in Airheads-made letters, hearts, roses, polka dots, stripes, and bows. They’ve collected lots of great ideas to use Airheads on their pinterest page right here for you to check out.
Keep reading to see how to make them yourself. I promise, they’re really super simple!

Step 3: Using a skewer, dip the marshmallow in and then turn upright.
1. Microwave them for about 6-7 seconds for the perfect malleable airhead.
2. Put them between waxed paper and a bit of oil then use a rolling pin to thin them out.
3. We used mini letter cookie cutters and a pizza cutter to get the shapes we needed.
