4•Spray your fingers with cooking spray or grease them up with shortening, and carefully pull the marshmallows off, by the base, and set them on top of the frosted cookies. You may push in the tops very gently. You may need to use a little icing on the bottom of the marshmallow to get it to stick if icing is to dry.
•Then just decorate as you'd like with the Wilton frosting, or your own homemade frosting! I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy the Betty Crocker cookie icing was! Very surprised !
5***Ingredients for Homemade Cookie Frosting *This dries hard and shiny, very pretty and easy to store. This frosting layers well just make sure and let the base coat dry VERY thoroughly first. (It takes a full 8 hours or overnight to dry entirely. I wait 1 hour in between base coat and decorating them, then let them dry overnight) While base coat is drying tint remaining icing into different colors. (The amount of icing you will need depends on the amount of cookies you decide to bake/or buy. ***This recipe will ice about a dozen cookies.
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract or your favorite
assorted food coloring
In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup. Be patient and get it the right constistency, it should drip slightly off of cookies. But for decorating it should be stiffer and you will have to adjust it with more powdered sugar. This is easy, no big deal.
