Edible Nail Polish Treats Instructions

Step 1:

Place a piece of parchment paper on the table.  Pour some of your sanding sugar onto the paper.

Step 2:

Using your spray bottle, lightly spray your marshmallow’s sides (except the bottom).  The marshmallows only need to be slightly wet.

Step 3:

Roll your marshmallow into the sanding sugar.  You want a light coat of sanding sugar on your marshmallow.  Make sure all sides of your marshmallows are covered, including the top.  You do not need to cover the bottom.

Step 4

Your Tootsie Rolls will act as the nail polish’s top.  To make the top, break your toothpicks in half.  Place one end into the Tootsie Roll and the other into your marshmallow.

Step 5

Repeat steps 1-4 until you have the desired amount of nail polish treats.  Make a variety of colors by using different colored sanding sugar.

Nail Polish Treat Tips

*Since the toothpicks are hidden in the snack, make sure your guests are aware that they are in there to avoid choking or injury.

*Nail Polish treats are better if they are made the day of your event.  If you need to make them early, only do the night before.  Do not store completed nail polish treats in the refrigerator.  Refrigeration will make the marshmallows harden.
