Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Don’t have shape cookie cutters? Kids’ cutting tools (washed), pizza cutter or a knife can be used to cut your own shapes.
  • Tip 2
    Use your sense of humour and imagination when decorating
  • Tip 3
    Flat, square marshmallows designed for s’mores are ideal for cutting out eyes and horns, and may be found in your grocer’s baking aisle. Otherwise, use large and mini marshmallows. A kitchen scissors or small, round cutters work great.
