Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Edible Igloo

For these fun and delicious snacks, you will need:
  • White frosting/icingg
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Paper or Styrofoam Cups

1. Cut 1 inch off top of cup.
2. "Glue" to a plate with icing, cut side down.
3. Use the icing to attach marshmallows, starting at the base. Cover the entire cup.
4. Stack marshmallows in front to form a door.
 (I ran out of mini marshmallows and cut a large marshmallow into slices to finish the roof and the doorway roof.)

We then got a little ambitious and added in a candy cane pole. I stuck it through chocolate marshmallows and "glued" on with white icing.

DM Tip: You can also use large marshmallows for larger sized cups, or cut the large marshmallows into pieces if you cannot find mini-marshmallows.

  1. That's cute! I wish I had enough to make one I could use as a fort. It would be totally worth it to eat my way out. ;-)


I love to hear from you! I promise I read every comment, but I don't always remember to respond to each one.
